Franco confirms Hammers exit

Mexico international Guillermo Franco has confirmed that he has played his last game in a West Ham United shirt.

The 33-year-old scored his country's consolation goal in Monday's 3-1 defeat to England at Wembley before limping out of the action with a sprained toe.

Franco expects to be fit enough to represent his country in South Africa but admits he is unsure where he will be playing his club football next term.

"I don't know where I'll be next season. West Ham told me 'Bye bye' so I won't be with West Ham next season," he admitted."Now my focus is on the international team and the World Cup and then I'll think about next season.

"Of course I enjoyed my time at West Ham. The supporters and the people were fantastic. I very much enjoyed my year in West Ham, but now it's finished and this is football."

Franco scored five goals in 16 starts and seven substitute appearances for the Hammers in the season just ended.
