Twitter reacts to controversial Ogbonna Tweet after West Ham defeat
By Harvey Byrne
Twitter reacted with humour after West Ham defender Angelo Ogbonna posted an image of the scoreline of his team’s 4-2 defeat against Watford on Saturday.
Ogbonna, 28, was an unused substitute during the Premier League clash with central defenders James Collins and Winston Reid favoured ahead of the Italy international.
The defender took to Twitter after the game and controversially posted a picture of the scoreline via his personal Twitter account in an indirect dig at the club.

I don't blame you making a point. I'd be pissed off if Reid was playing ahead of me. He's completely lost it.

to be honest if James Collins was playing ahead of me I'd commit to a head loss tweet like this also!!

Ogbonna moved to east London in an £8million move from Serie A giants Juventus last summer.
He featured in 39 encounters for the Hammers last season in all competitions, playing a key role in a side which finished in seventh place in the Premier League.
Slaven Bilic’s side have got off to a slow start in the new season losing three of their first four matches, with one victory coming against Bournemouth.
They also went crashing out of the Europa League at the qualificaiton stage for the second year in a row after losing 2-1 to Romanian side Astra Giurgiu on aggregate.
