West Ham fans criticise £6.3m-rated star following poor form

West Ham United lost their fifth Premier League game of the season on Friday night – suffering a 3-0 defeat at home to Brighton & Hove Albion.

The result left the Hammers down in 17th position in the table, only outside of the relegation zone on goal difference following a poor start to the campaign.

The London club have also shipped 17 goals in their nine Premier League matches, which is another indiction of their problems in a defensive area.

After the Brighton match, West Ham centre-back Jose Fonte apologised to the club’s supporters, and insisted that the team would bounce back when they travelled to bitter rivals Tottenham Hotspur in the EFL Cup on Wednesday night.

The West Ham fans are simply not interested in cheap talk, however, with many claiming that Fonte, who is rated at £6.3m by transfermarkt.co.uk, has been poor since arriving at the club from Southampton.

As the pressure continues to build on head coach Slaven Bilic, the West Ham supporters have shown their anger on social media once again.
