West Ham Fans Fuming at Youth Player Posting Wayne Rooney Goal in Appreciation

Publish date:

West Ham youth player Moses Makasi felt the wrath of his own fans after posting his appreciation for Wayne Rooney's first ever Everton hat-trick.

Both sides were completely out of form coming into the clash on Wednesday night at Goodison Park, but it was Everton who ran out winner with a convincing 4-0 victory.

The home side were easily superior in the first half with Rooney scoring a rebounded penalty, then converting Tom Davies' deflected cross. 


The Hammers eventually got a penalty of their own, but Jordan Pickford denied Manuel Lanzini. Rooney completed his hat-trick not long after, firing in from the half-way line after Joe Hart's poor clearance, before Ashley Williams - who gave away the earlier penalty - scored the fourth with a header.

It was a great way for David Unsworth to step down as manager, following the announcement Sam Allardyce would take over.


However, it was just the second loss in three matches for David Moyes since Slaven Bilic was relieved of his duties after the loss to Liverpool.

West Ham fans were rightfully unhappy with the result that keeps them in the bottom three, but such feelings were only amplified by Under-23 player Moses Makasi's applauding Rooney on his first ever Everton hat-trick. 

 On Snapchat, the 22-year-old captioned the achievement with "Wayne Rooney what a player," and soon felt the backlash. 

Unfortunately for supporters their next few matches are considerably more difficult. The Hammers face the daunting task of Manchester City, Chelsea and Arsenal in their next three Premier League matches.
