On Tuesday night, Marouane Chamakh netted the winner for Crystal Palace against West Ham United, and after the game, the striker admitted that it felt great scoring against Sam Allardyce’s side after The Hammers boss lied to him during his loan spell at Upton Park.
The Moroccan striker was sent on loan to West Ham from Arsenal, and during the initial talks ahead of the proposed deal, Allardyce told Chamakh that he would be starting up front with Andy Carroll for the side.
However, now at Palace, Chamakh revealed that he was lied too and admitted that it was great scoring against his former-manager.
“When I was at West Ham there was a really good atmosphere and really good fans – I just had a problem with the manager,” he told the Daily Mirror.
“He lied to me. I came and he said: ‘You will play with Andy Carroll’. I played just three games and after that I did not play one more minute.
“So I think it was a good response from me on the pitch. I am really satisfied.”
