Mark Bright criticises West Ham United’s Alex Song on Twitter

West Ham United suffered a 2-0 defeat to Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium in the Premier League earlier today.

Mark Bright has taken to social networking site Twitter to criticise West Ham United midfielder Alex Song.

The former Crystal Palace and Sheffield Wednesday forward did not like the Cameroon international midfielder’s actions when he was substituted against Manchester City today.

Song started the Premier League encounter at the Etihad Stadium, but manager Sam Allardyce took him off in favour of Matt Javis midway through the second half.

The Barcelona-owned midfielder’s performance for West Ham in recent months has been disappointing, and he once again failed to impose himself on the game against City.

Song struggled to hang onto the ball in the first half, although during his time on the pitch, the 27-year-old had a pass accuracy of 75%, created one chance, attempted two dribbles, won 83% of the tackles and made two interceptions.

The 2-0 defeat to City at the Etihad means that West Ham are now 10th in the Premier League table with 43 points from 33 matches.

Sam Allardyce’s side are back in league action next weekend, when they take on Queens Park Rangers at Loftus Road in a London derby.
