Former West Ham star hits back at African slur from disgraced ex-Hammers chief

Date published: Thursday 8th February 2018 2:41

Former West Ham forward Andre Ayew has said African players are “very proud” of themselves following comments by the Hammers’ former director of recruitment Tony Henry.

West Ham sacked Henry after the Daily Mail claimed he said they no longer wanted to sign African players because “they have a bad attitude” and “cause mayhem” when not selected.

Ayew, who left West Ham for Swansea on transfer deadline day, added at a press conference: “A lot of African players – like (Didier) Drogba – have got to the top and many top clubs have African players in their team.”
