Teddy Rubbishes Villa Story
Teddy Sheringham has dismissed the newspaper reports that he nearly joined Villa as utter rubbish and has assured the West Ham fans he is 100% committed to the Hammers.
The 40-year-old former England striker explained:
'I was having a conversation with a reporter after the game on Sunday and was asked about the possibility of signing a new contract at the Club. I jokingly remarked that, had he asked me that a few weeks ago when I was left out of the squad of 16 for our match against Aston Villa, then I would probably have told him that I was considering retirement.'
'It was just another way of saying that you never know what is around the corner in football, but at no point did I ever mention the possibility of Aston Villa being interested in signing me. How they have turned those comments into such a story is beyond me, and I would just like to make it clear to our supporters that the whole thing is complete rubbish.'
FFS, some of these reporters need a kick up the proverbial!!
