‘100% Crazy How Badly He Has Been Treated’ ‘A Mystery’ Fans Perplexed By Pellegrini’s Snub Of West Ham Star

West Ham manager Manuel Pellegrini‘s decision to drop centre-back Angelo Ogbonna in recent games has not gone down well with most supporters.

The Italian has not started since the 2-0 defeat to Everton last month, with Fabian Balbuena having taken his place alongside Issa Diop in the centre of defence. However, things have gotten worse since the 31-year-old was benched.

The Hammers have conceded seven in three games since the loss at Goodison Park, and supporters on Twitter have been questioning Pellegrini’s judgement:



The defensive record with and without Ogbonna speaks for itself. In the eight games the Italian has started, West Ham have conceded eight times and kept three clean sheets. In his absence, they have let 12 goals in four matches.

Of course, some of those games have been where Roberto has been in goal, instead of Lukasz Fabianski, so the statistics are skewed slightly in that regard, but it still suggests the decision to drop Ogbonna was unjustified.
