Blackpool's Baptiste slams West Ham: You just hoof it!

Blackpool defender Alex Baptiste slammed West Ham United's playing style after Saturday's promotion playoff defeat.

Blackpool defender Alex Baptiste slammed West Ham United's playing style after Saturday's promotion playoff defeat.

Ricardo Vaz Te netted the winning goal as the Hammers won 2-1 but the Seasiders' defender was hardly full of praise for the victors.

He told the BBC: "We were the better side. It was embarrassing at times. They just hoof it long and hope for the best.

"And it's a foul on me for the second goal, so the ref has done us no favours.

"I suppose everyone got what they wanted. Everyone wanted West Ham to win because they're a team from London.

"I wouldn't survive in their team because I'm not tall enough. All of them are eight feet tall."
