West Ham defender gets 6-game ban for spitting

30 January 2018

ARTHUR MASUAKU has been banned for six games for spitting at Wigan's Nick Powell.

The Sun says the fullback copped a massive dressing down from furious Moyes yesterday over his spitting shame.

Sullivan told the fans "We can't sign anyone", and it could be a warning sign that no permanent deal should be expected before Thursday.

Asked whether reports of Joao Mario having a medical at West Ham were accurate, Moyes said: "Your sources are correct".

"It was despicable. I've not seen it from him".

"We are undefeated in our last five Premier League matches and are working round the clock with the manager to do all we can to ensure this run of good form continues". "I've enjoyed him so I'd have to say it is out of character".

After admitting his guilt, the FA are set to hand Masuaku a six-match ban, which is the same punishment given to Manchester United defender Jonny Evans in 2015 after spitting at Newcastle United striker Papiss Cisse.

"It was in the heat of the moment and out of character for me".

That will further deplete a Hammers squad that may also be without Pedro Obiang for the foreseeable future after he came off with suspected medial ligament damage. That will give City a problem of trying to shift the player and his £175,000-a-week wages with just 12 months remaining on his contract, potentially meaning they will have to loan him out for a third season until his contract expires.

Hammers back-up goalkeeper Joe Hart had Gareth Southgate assessing his England credentials at Wigan and admitted the visitors' fringe players failed to impress.

We're not quite sure, though, if gobbing at an opponent counts towards that statistic; and even if it does, the incident happened in the FA Cup - so it wouldn't have had any effect regardless. "It's very disappointing on my behalf, because I want to perform and losing 2-0 at Wigan is hard, so I'm struggling for positives".
