West Ham fans react on Twitter to Morgan Amalfitano’s exit


Morgan Amalfitano left West Ham by mutual consent.

As confirmed by the official West Ham website, Morgan Amalfitano has left the Hammers by mutual consent.

The French winger only signed for the club last season, and he was, at times, excellent. A truly top class talent, he dipped in and out of games too inconsistently to ever be considered great, but at times he showed just how good he was.

However, this season saw him cast out of the side under Slaven Bilic, making four appearances in the Europa League qualifying rounds, and then not playing a single game since the middle of July.

Supposed issues with his attitude meant Bilic could not see the 30-year-old as a part of the club’s future, and he was said to be kicked out of first-team training, being forced to work with the Under-21 set-up instead.

Amalfitano’s exit does not come as a surprise, and the cancellation of his contract has worked out best for both parties. The Hammers no longer have to hang on to a player they clearly do not want, whilst there are sure to be many clubs lining up for Amalfitano considering his talents.

Following the confirmation of the news, West Ham fans took to Twitter to express their thanks to the winger for his time at the club, praising the abilities he displayed in a Claret shirt.
