Sporting Lisbon president makes shock West Ham claim after summer war of words

By John Reid

Sporting Lisbon president Bruno de Carvalho has said that he is willing to do business with West Ham again.

The two clubs engaged in a bitter feud this summer, after the Hammers failed to sign Sporting midfielder William Carvalho.

Sporting claimed they hadn’t bid for the player and West Ham saying that they had and the player didn’t have time to have his medical.

After a series of petty insults were exchanged, de Carvalho has claimed that the matter is over and he would attempt to work with West Ham again.

Speaking to the IBTimes, de Carvalho said, “There was this soap regarding West Ham, but it is not interesting, it is not important because there was nothing.

“English clubs do conduct themselves in a good way; they are not perfect but there is no perfection in the world. But it is good to work with them.”

It remains to be seen if West Ham, under the new management of David Moyes, will make an attempt to sign the player again in January.

Moyes begins his job at West Ham with a trip to Watford on Sunday, with the Hammers currently in 18th place and in a Premier League relegation battle.
