Watch: “West Ham want to be a big club. Big clubs don’t sell their best players!”

Manuel Pellegrini spoke of his pride at West Ham’s “big club mentality” in their recent 1-0 win over Arsenal at the London Stadium so can the Hammers really start to dream of breaking into the Premier League’s top 6? Christy Malyan thinks not.

Speaking for Pl>ymaker FC, he questioned West Ham’s resolve in the ongoing Marko Arnautovic transfer saga and claims that “big clubs do not sell their best players halfway through a season”.

Indeed, West Ham were forced to sell Dimitri Payet in January 2017 and if Arnautovic follows suit, Malyan believes it will set a dangerous precedent for the rest of the dressing room.
