West Ham fans react to Issa Diop’s international selection

Issa Diop has been a hit with the West Ham United fans since making the move to the London Stadium in the summer transfer window.

Diop was part of Manuel Pellegrini’s spending spree during the summer, with the 21-year-old arriving at West Ham following a strong season with Toulouse.

The defender has taken impressively to Premier League football, and even drew praise from Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho earlier this season.

As expected, Diop has been named in France’s Under-21 squad for their upcoming internationals against Croatia Under-21s and Spain Under-21s.

The West Ham fans have been reacting to the news on social media, and it would be fair to say that a number think he should be in the senior squad.

France have a serious amount of talent in central defence at the moment, but the West Ham supporters feel that Diop is good enough to be selected, even at this relatively early stage of his career.
