Said Benrahma angered West Ham fans after a photo circulated showing him posing happily with Yoane Wissa after the defeat to Brentford.
The Algeria international has not entirely lived up to expectations since joining the Hammers from Brentford, so it’s not too surprising that this image rubbed a few fans up the wrong way.
However, reports have now emerged that clear up the confusion surrounding the picture below, which was actually taken before the game, rather than after it…
