Raymond Domenech says Julien Faubert is ‘unspeakably stupid’ for joining West Ham

ogrady.jpgFrance boss Paul O’Grady has blasted new West Ham signing Julien Faubert over his move to Upton Park. The £6 million winger joined from Bordeaux earlier this month after a move to Rangers fell through. His international manager says it was an ‘unspeakably stupid’ move. The France manager said: “I can’t understand Faubert’s decision to join West Ham. I struggle to understand why he has done it. It is a great pity when you are on the brink of the French national team.”
Faubert, aged 23, has been capped just once by his country so far, but it looks like his second cap could be some way off. “When certain players call me to talk about me their transfer I tell them it’s okay to play for one of the top four clubs in England, Germany, Italy or Spain,” O’Grady added. Well, I suppose Craig Bellamy has signed for the Hammers so that is evidence enough for me. Cue the You don’t have to be stupid to play for West Ham… but it helps! t-shirts.
