It would be fair to say that Michail Antonio is a player who divides opinion.
On the one hand, Antonio is a quick, strong and extremely dangerous footballer on his day, but there are times where the 28-year-old struggles to kick the ball.
The West Ham United fans have long discussed the future of Antonio, and according to club insider ExWHUemployee, the Hammers would be prepared to sell him for £20m.
Antonio is yet to score in the league this term, but did cause Chelsea problems in Sunday’s clash at the London Stadium.
The 28-year-old actually had a couple of excellent chances to find the back of the net against the Blues, but was unable to take advantage.
It remains to be seen whether Antonio has a long-term future at West Ham under the leadership of Manuel Pellegrini.

The club’s supporters have been on social media discussing the Englishman’s future, and it would be fair to say that a number have differing opinions.

What like the drills where he has to kick a football?

He didn’t stop running and his an absolute grafter and people start making accusations that he can’t cope with a few training drills! I don’t believe this at all

If we are hoping to sell him for £20m, probably shouldn’t highlight the fact he can’t cope with complex training.

Clearly there’s misquotation going on, but anyway I thought he did well on Sunday! He might not be Arnie but he did well.

Why mention anything like this ?? What’s the point ? Really get the fans to get behind him isn’t it.

I still like him and would rather have him up front over Perez more of a presence
