Michail Antonio responded with a cheeky grin after being accused by Leeds fans of being a cheat according to West Ham United’s Football.London reporter Tom Clark.
The 31-year-old has been in brilliant form for the Hammers so far this season.
Antonio has bagged five goals and three assists in five Premier League games so far.
He has a goal in the Europa League to his name as well.
Micky put in a usual all-action display against Leeds at Elland Road yesterday afternoon. He caused the Whites’ back-line problems throughout the entire game.
He caused a bit of controversy early on in the second-half as well.
Antonio leaped for a ball and elbowed Leeds goalkeeper Illan Meslier in the face in the process. The West Ham striker was duly booked but the Leeds fans thought he should have been sent off.
Michail Antonio responds to cheat claims from Leeds fans
The 31-year-old went to speak to the media after yesterday’s hugely important win at Elland Road.
And the 31-year-old West Ham ace responded in cheeky fashion:
Suggesting that Antonio cheated yesterday is quite simply farcical!
Micky jumped for the ball and accidentally caught Meslier in the face.
The 31-year-old hasn’t got a and bone in his body.
And if anything, it’s just nice that West Ham have rattled the Leeds fanbase yet again!
