West Ham supporters mercilessly slate 25-year-old flop on Twitter

It’s not been the happiest of spells for West Ham United forward Simone Zaza.

After the Hammers’ rather public quest to bring a marquee marksman to the club in order to coronate their move to the Queen Elizabeth London Stadium, the Italian international is looking anything but that sort of figure.

Highly regarded in Serie A, the 25-year-old’s dreadful penalty against Germany at Euro 2016 has been his most famous contribution over the last few months.

While these are still early days for the Azzurri international in East London, the beleaguered Irons support have been rather merciless on Twitter.

His outings in claret and blue thus far have done little to convince them the former Juventus man is the standard required to spearhead their attack.

Seemingly bereft of any confidence at all, Zaza is certainly finding life at the London Stadium a difficult thing to adjust to.

Much like the club as a whole.
