It’s fair to say, Robert Snodgrass’ £10.2m move from Hull City to West Ham United has turned out to be a bit of a disaster for the Scottish winger.
Snodgrass made just 15 appearances – without scoring – for the Hammers before being shipped off to Aston Villa on loan at the end of August, just a little under seven months after making the move to the London Stadium in the first place.
The Scot has since criticised former West Ham boss Slaven Bilic for playing him out of position while he was at the club, even going as far as claiming the Croatian asked him where he wanted to play when he was coming on as a sub against Man City.
Playing his trade at Villa now, Snodgrass has scored twice for Steve Bruce in 10 Championship outings and looks to be back to his old self. However, he remains on the books at West Ham, something which seems to have irked West Ham co-chairman David Sullivan.
Sullivan admitted in an interview with the Guardian, that his “kids begged him not to sign” Snodgrass and defender Jose Fonte.
“I’m not involved in the strategy,” said Sullivan. “The manager said he wanted Fonte from Southampton and Snodgrass from Hull. My kids begged me not to sign them.”
It seems an incredible thing for chairman to say about a player who is still registered to his club. Of course, the quote made its way to Snodgrass and the winger wasted no time giving it the treatment it deserved.
Snodgrass sarcastically tweeted his ‘thanks’ to Sullivan for his ‘support’ and something tells us he won’t be darkening the door of the London Stadium anytime soon. Check it out for yourself below:
