West Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini told reporters how he will be taking his squad to Spain for a warm weather mid-season training camp, as quoted by the club's official website, and some Hammers fans took to Twitter in response to the Chilean's comments.

The east London outfit do not have a game now until February 22nd, and Pellegrini told reporters how he plans to utilise the time between now and then, as quoted by the club's official website:


"We are going to do a training camp out of England, probably in Spain. I said after we lost at Wimbledon that we wanted to continue in the FA Cup, that was our intention, but we couldn’t do it, and in another way it is good for some players that are playing too many games since the beginning of the season."

Many West Ham fans don't seem convinced at the merits behind the trip, however... 










West Ham will leave themselves open to criticism by going away to train in Spain, whether it is try right thing to do or not.

Should they lose to Fulham, they will have to expect a backlash.

Conversely, if they beat the Cottagers, Pellegrini will be vindicated in his decision.
