West Ham United reportedly walk away from a deal to sign Luiz Felipe from Real Betis this summer.
However, Moyes settled on Mavropanos instead, and the rest is history…
West Ham walk away from deal to sign 26-year-old
AS reckon that the Hammers will not be signing Luiz Felipe anymore, after the arrival of the 25-year-old Greek ace at the London Stadium.
I’m fairly sure that the majority of West Ham fans will be absolutely delighted with this.
Signing Mavropanos instead of Felipe is 100 per cent the right call from Moyes. The 25-year-old is streets ahead of the Betis defender on every level.
The 26-year-old is a bit of a hothead and he had the worst disciplinary record in La Liga last season, with three reds cards to his name.
He is fairly slow along the ground and despite being a decent defender, I don’t think he would have been good enough for the Hammers.
West Ham walking away from a deal to sign the Real Betis centre-back is really good news as far as I’m concerned.
