West Ham chairman has dig at sold players

West Ham chairman Eggert Magnusson has had a dig at some of the players they offloaded this summer.

Despite the ambitious transfer policy, Magnusson is keen to stress that the club's net transfer spending this summer is only £1m. This covers four players in: Craig Bellamy, Scott Parker, Julien Faubert and Freddie Ljungberg and five out: Nigel Reo-Coker, Marlon Harewood, Paul Konchesky, Tyrone Mears and Yossi Benayoun.

Without naming names, Magnusson explained: "It's no secret there was a lot going on in the dressing room we wanted to get rid of. There was unrest and things that shouldn't be happening in a dressing room damaging the spirit. The group now is very happy."
