Mexican striker Guillermo Franco (who recently scored his country’s goal in their recent 3-1 international friendly defeat at the hands of England) has confirmed he is to leave West Ham during the summer, after the club decided not to extend the one-year deal he signed upon joining the Hammers last September.
Speaking to the club’s official website, Franco said;
“I don’t know where I’ll be next season. West Ham told me ‘bye bye’ so I won’t be with West Ham next season.
Now my focus is on the international team and the World Cup and then I’ll think about next season.
Of course I enjoyed my time at West Ham. The supporters and the people were fantastic. I very much enjoyed my year in West Ham, but now it’s finished and this is football.”
West Ham are now left with a jaw-droppingly strong clutch of striking talent at their disposal, including the son of Osiris Mido and big fat Benni McCarthy.
