West Ham duo send message to fans on Twitter after Europa League disappointment

West Ham Upton Park

West Ham United will not feature in the group stage of the Europa League this season.

West Ham United striker Elliot Lee has taken to social networking site Twitter to express his disappointment at his side’s failure to progress to the group stage of the Europa League this season.

The Premier League outfit lost the third qualifying round 4-3 on aggregate to Romanian side Astra Giurgiu.

Having drawn the first leg of the tie 2-2 at the Boleyn Ground last week, the Hammers lost the second leg 2-1 away from home on Thursday.

Lee, who started Thursday’s second leg and played for 80 minutes, has taken to Twitter to express his disappointment.

West Ham goalkeeper Adrian was also dejected to watch his team fail to secure a place in the playoff round of the Europa League.

Failure to play in the Europa League proper will be a huge disappointment to West Ham, but it is time that they turn their focus to the Premier League.

The first league game of the season for the Hammers is against Arsenal away from home at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday.
