Berahino sends Twitter into meltdown

7

Saido Berahino appears to have indicated he will never play for West Brom again after they rejected two deadline-day bids from Tottenham.

In a message on his official Twitter account, the striker seemed to hint he was prepared to go on strike at The Hawthorns in a last-ditch attempt to force a move to White Hart Lane

It read: “Sad how i cant say exactly how the club has treated me but i can officially say i will never play Jeremy Peace.”

Baggies chairman Peace had rejected a third and fourth bid from Spurs for the England Under-21 international late on deadline day.

It is understood the bids were only marginally better than the north London club’s second offer, made last month, which would have only risen to B#21million with clauses and add-ons.

The Baggies remain determined to keep the 22-year-old at The Hawthorns after Peace held talks with the player last week and reiterated he would not be sold.

Berahino had a transfer request rejected last month, with Albion angered by Tottenham’s continued pursuit of the forward.

The Baggies are understood to be unhappy with Spurs’ approach to the deal, which has only strengthened their resolve to keep Berahino.

The frontman has been left out of West Brom’s last three squads during the speculation, with boss Tony Pulis insisting he was not in the right state of mind to play.

  1. berahino should get it into his thick head that spuds obviously dont rate him that highly if the best they want to put on the table is 5 million down with the rest in add ons,cheapskate doesnt begin to describe tottenham hotspurs the also rans of london

  2. He should have driven down to White Hart Lane and sat in the car park and made himself look a bigger prat than he already does. Just a spoilt little boy. Spurs have continually messed about after Jeremy Peace said in the first place he would not sell, but Spurs had to keep putting pressure on the lad with offers they knew would be unacceptable trying to get the player to misbehave, well they have succeeded, it remains to be seen what will happen now, but he will find that JP is a lot stronger a man than he, and not to be messed about with. He will be training with the youth team.

  3. If a player wants to leave and a club offer over market value then it is extremely bad form for the club not to sell. Its not like they want him that much or will even play him so I really think they have shot themselves in the foot for this one. Its not like he is their number one player or even striker at the club so I think berahino has every right to be p****d off about his treatment.

  4. So here we have a situation which simply defines football chairmen. Petty, childish, vain and overflowing with hubris. Actually Berahino was the adult in the group. He was the only one who kinda-sorta kept his opinions within the club.
    Now we all know that Levy is an ass, and that negotiating with him is like cuddling a bobcat. Having said that Jeremy Peace's lack of discretion is what turned this into a farce. If your opposite number bids late and low, simply turn it down. The mischief attached to making this mess public has to have been intentional, because the outcome cannot have been a surprise to anybody but the most naive.
    Look beyond the simple and easy target.
    The git is peace, Levy is just Levy, as ever, but the real victims are Pulis and Berahino.
