West Ham suspend head of transfers over 'racist' comments about African players

He admitted sending emails to an agent and other club officials saying West Ham would not be interested in signing any more African players because some of them have a "bad attitude".

"It's nothing racist at all".

"Over my time I've had good African players and bad African players - it's just like having good Scottish players and bad Scottish players".

Senegal striker Diafra Sakho left the club in the January to join Rennes and Ghana forward Andre Ayew returned to Swansea.

"It showed that we had to field the same team again as midweek but Brighton played in midweek so it's no excuse for us".

Labor Department reported employment grew more than expected in January with the biggest wage gain in more than 8-1/2 years. Experts have disputed Trump's assertions, arguing that the growth is consistent with a years-long economic upswing.

Henry insisted the policy had "nothing against the African race at all". "I think in all clubs wherever you are you always look in the lower leagues". There's not a problem with them.

"Given their problems, it's odd they sent three players out on loan and sold Andre Ayew".

'West Ham United will not tolerate any type of discrimination.

So news that West Ham were keen to bring him to the capital suggests that they have not learned from the struggles of Hart, Hernandez and co this season.

It was then put to Mr Henry that his remarks could be seen as discriminatory, to which he replied: "In what way?" I have done it over the years, [Leighton] Baines, [Joleon] Lescott, I could name many more, [Tim] Cahill, all those players came with success.

Spotify is testing a new app that's just for listening to playlists
Right now, Spotify calls Stations an "experiment", meaning it may or may not stick around in the long term. Stations , on the other hand, could be a way for Spotify to win over more users on mobile.

Moyes also approached the club's players to hold a "frank conversation" with them regarding the reports surrounding Henry.

"But the likes of Sakho have caused mayhem". That's all it was.

The PFA issued a statement, reading: "The PFA strongly condemn any such views and there is no place for them in football".

Moyes said: "I've spoken to one or two of the African players and they seem fine and they've trained well". Obviously, we got the goal and found it hard to sustain those levels of the start, which allowed a West Ham team, that is in very good form, to get back into the game.
