The agent of West Ham ace Nikola Vlasic has spoken out, and taken a very clear dig at David Moyes.
Torino have an option to buy the 25-year-old on a permanent deal for around £11 million in the summer but as things stand, it remains unclear as to whether the Serie A outfit will take up that option.
Vlasic has been in fine form for Torino out in Italy this season, with five goals and six assists in games to his name in 34 games (Transfermarkt).
And it seems as though his agent is keen for him to remain out in Turin beyond the end of this season…
Agent of West Ham ace Nikola Vlasic has speaks out, takes very clear dig at David Moyes
The Croatian’s representative – Tonci Martic has been speaking with SportItalia about his client’s future beyond the end of the season.
And Martic offered clear praise for current Torino manager Ivan Juric.
“Nikola is happy at Torino. I hope he grows together with Torino. Coach Juric is very important for his career. The future now, that’s all to be determined, as he should be back at base next month. It is difficult to say whether he will remain or not. It depends on the two clubs: everything is still open.”
I don’t know if it’s just me, but that’s surely a clear dig at Moyes isn’t it!!
I don’t blame him in all fairness – Moyes totally stunted Vlasic’s development last season.
The Scot was obsessed with playing the 25-year-old as a left winger – a position where he was totally ineffective because of his lack of pace.
Moyes never played him centrally, and as a result, Nikola Vlasic was written off as a failure at West Ham. Unfortunately for us, we never got to see the best fo the former CSKA Moscow man.
And I really can’t see him returning to West Ham at the end of the season.
