West Ham’s French winger Julian Faubert has spent half the season on the treatment table, so it comes as a surprise that he has even experienced enough of manager Alan Curbishley to criticise his management style. It appears though that Faubert is one of those players who just can’t keep a lid on things and for some reason thinks that slagging off his manager will somehow help his cause. Faubert sneered:
‘We rarely speak tactics at training. Since I’ve been here we have done just two tactical training sessions.
‘Instead we just do games, try to play in little spaces with everybody in the front. Players kick you, then you kick them, but nobody complains, it’s just part of the game.’
The Daily Mail also claims that Faubert reckons that Giovanni Trapattoni is set to be appointed director of football at the Hammers, something denied by the club. Spreading rumours Faubert? Easy there mate, we’ll be out of a job soon at this rate.
