The West Ham United administration appears to have just delivered a very significant message to Divin Mubama.
Young West Ham player Divin Mubama replaced Danny Ings in the second half of Saturday’s match against Burnley, and Ian Wright and others praised him for his outstanding performance.
The 19-year-old has only played in about 20 minutes this season under Hammers manager David Moyes prior to Saturday’s Premier League match at Turf Moor.
Since Mubama has demonstrated that he has what it takes to succeed at the greatest level, we are quite concerned about his recent rejection of the club’s offer of a new contract.
The young player from West Ham is miles ahead of Ings and is definitely a more naturally talented finisher than Michail Antonio.
Given that Ings is about as useful as an ashtray on a motorcycle and the 33-year-old is presently sidelined due to injury, this may be Mubama’s moment to shine.
How does he currently stand in terms of sticking with the team once this season ends? He appears to have received a pretty harsh message from the London Stadium’s higher authorities.
Divin Mubama given no-nonsense message from West Ham owners
The 19-year-old forward, according to Claret and Hugh, has been urged to focus on playing time for the senior club rather than trying to earn money by signing a new deal.
In actuality, it’s wise counsel because he will eventually land a rich new deal if he performs well for the first squad.
A noteworthy observation from this report is that Mubama appears to be scheduled to play frequently in the upcoming weeks. Given the volume of games he has ahead of him, he has a good opportunity to establish himself as a regular starter for the Hammers.
Divin Mubama has a terrific message, in my opinion, if the West Ham owners have really urged him to focus on football.
Over the course of four or five games, let’s see what he can actually do. There’s no way that Danny Ings is going to start ahead of him in any competition going forward.
The gifted young player for the Hammers now has a great opportunity to showcase his skills to the world. And before the end of the year, I would be shocked if he hadn’t inked a new contract.
For once, it seems like the West Ham owners handled a player-related matter flawlessly!
