Hammers star takes to Twitter to react to chairman jibe

West Ham United star Robert Snodgrass has replied to claims by co-chairman David Sullivan that his kids begged him not to sign the Scotland international.

Snodgrass had successful spells at Leeds United, Norwich and Hull City before making a £7m move to the Hammers in January last year.

However, the winger has failed to live up to expectations since that move, and it is likely his loan move to Aston Villa will be made permanent at some point.

But even with his poor tenure at the London Stadium, the Scotland star must have been surprised to see West Ham’s co-chairman David Sullivan take a swipe at him in the manner he has.

Sullivan admitted that his “kids begged him not to sign” Snodgrass or Jose Fonte, a story which many took to Twitter in order to make the star aware of the claims.

The 30-year-old seemed in a jokey mood when he reacted, admitting he is not surprised by the claims. He ended the tweet with a sly dig back at the chairman.

“Everyone tagging me in this like your all surprised. Thanks for your support MR CHAIRMAN.”
