Carroll apologises for Moyes row

Filed: Thursday, 3rd May 2018
By: Staff Writer

Andy Carroll has returned to training after apologising for his part in a row with current manager David Moyes.

Carroll became embroiled in a row with the manager during training on Monday, 24 hours after he disappeared from the bench towards the end of Sunday's 4-1 thrashing by Manchester City.

However the oft-injured striker, who was sent home by Moyes as a result, is understood to have returned to the fold having apologised for his behaviour. And West Ham, say the BBC, now consider the matter "settled".

Carroll was spotted leaving the dugout by a number of supporters, immediately after Moyes made the last of his three permitted substitutes against the new Premeir League champions.

The former England forward, now 29, has started just 91 matches for West Ham since moving to east London from Liverpool (initially on loan) in August 2012 - an average of just 15 starts per season.

And given his enormous salary, each of his 33 goals (at an average of 5 per season) have cost the club in the region of 850,000.
