Moyes not helped by West Ham man’s social media activity

West Ham United winger Michail Antonio

West Ham United attacker Michail Antonio is the latest star to be caught out liking a social post he probably should not have, with the Englishman spotted agreeing with a tweet labelling David Moyes’ first match in charge “a shambles”.

The Scotsman’s Hammers retained their unwanted place inside the bottom three of the Premier League on Sunday after recording their seventh defeat of the season, going down 2-0 to Watford at Vicarage Road in what was a comfortable victory for the Hornets.

The 54-year-old’s inaugural test in the West Ham dugout produced nothing but an uninspiring display, and it seems that those inside the east Londoners’ dressing room may well not be fully behind the club’s appointment.

Following the defeat, Antonio, who has not been available for selection since suffering a rib injury during West Ham’s 2-2 draw with Crystal Palace in October, ‘liked’ a tweet from the Daily Star’s back page.

The article labelled Moyes’ opening clash as Hammers boss “a shambles” following the irate manager’s discontent with his players after the 90 minutes had concluded.

The social media ‘mishap’ was believed to be in response to the Scot’s comments, which left little to be desired surrounding his feelings on his West Ham side’s performance on Sunday.

“I didn’t enjoy it, we have the ball away too cheaply too many times and I expected us to do better”, the former Everton, Manchester United and Sunderland boss told the post-match press conference at Vicarage Road, as quoted by football.london.

“We tried to stay in the game, in the recent past we haven’t stayed in them so we could give ourselves a chance and we probably did even at 2-0. But overall, I just didn’t think it was good enough, that level won’t be good enough.”

Moyes now has the chance to repair a seemingly already damaged relationship with the Hammers players and supporters on Friday evening when he takes to the London Stadium home dugout for the first time as his side welcome Leicester City.
