Andy Carroll Sent Home From Training After Bust-Up With David Moyes
There were fireworks and handbags at West Ham's training ground yesterday as Andy Carroll was sent home after a reported bust-up with manager David Moyes.
It's thought that the heated discussion between the pair started when Moyes became unhappy with Carroll's behaviour at the London Stadium on Sunday.
This angered Moyes, and back at Chadwell Heath on Monday, the boss was fuming still further when Carroll refused to apologise for his childish antics. The towering forward was therefore promptly sent back home, throwing his future at the club into doubt.
Despite being injury-laden and inconsistent, Carroll offers the Irons a huge attacking threat through his height and strength. He is a great asset to have on the bench. When he comes om, he's able to push the defence back and cause problems.
But Moyes did not feel an appearance from the 29-year-old was warranted in their defeat to the Citizens over the weekend. News now suggests that the former Everton boss is considering dropping him completely for the next fixture, a trip to the King Power stadium to face freefalling Leicester City, arguably the best chance for West Ham to earn three points in the remaining fixtures.
The east London side's defeat has only added pressure in finally pulling out of the relegation battle they're. Indeed, a cushion of three points separate them from the drop, but their form - two points out of a possible 12 - plus this recent news of training ground discontent, is cause for concern.
Carroll is reported to have grown frustrated at his lack of game-time under Moyes, ever since the Scot took over the reins in November 2017, but it's reported that the squad are generally on the side of Moyes and his made his position stronger.
Sadly, there is no sign of the pair mending the fractious relationship anytime soon.
