It sounds like there’s been an almighty bust-up in the DR Congo camp but West Ham fans won’t mind this one bit. International friendlies are the scourge of club football, and pleny of players come back injured after playing meaningless matches halfway round the globe. West Ham have a huge match at the weekend and defeat could see them drop into the bottom three of the Premier League. They need all hands on deck at the moment and will be happy to see Masuaku return back to the London Stadium.
