Adrian hits out at West Ham owner after Hart arrival
By Danny Wright
West Ham goalkeeper Adrian has taken to Twitter to hit out at David Sullivan’s recent interview about the signing of Joe Hart.
With the England international’s arrival in Slaven Bilic’s squad, the Irons now have three goalkeepers that could all be contending for a spot in the first-team next season.
However Adrian looks to have risked the wrath of West Ham co-owner Sullivan, who failed to make a single mention of the Spanish goalkeeper or his team-mate Darren Randolph while speaking to the club’s official website about Hart.
Sullivan dubbed the Manchester City loanee as “the best goalkeeper” he has ever worked with after both of their spells with Birmingham City.
That statement hasn’t gone down well with Adrian though, who took to his personal Twitter account on Wednesday morning to air his thoughts.

“Thanks for your sincerity. But you still have “two great professionals” respecting, fighting and defending this badge,” he said in reference to his and Randolph’s exclusion from Sullivan’s comments.

Adrian’s time at West Ham could be over this summer after the Mirror reported that Newcastle are in pursuit of the Spaniard and his goalkeeping companion Randolph.
The duo were in fierce competition to earn the No 1 spot in Bilic’s squad last season, but all hope of that happening in the near future looks to have been put to bed by Hart’s arrival and Sullivan’s comments.
