Fighting talk from Yarmolenko

Filed: Wednesday, 10th October 2018

West Ham star Andriy Yarmolenko has come out fighting - after his form was criticised by Ukrainian TV pundit Wladimir Kobelkov.

The £17.5million winger, who moved from Dortmund to London during the summer offered to take the pundit on in the ring after his latest comments upset the United star, who has made 11 appearances for West Ham.

"In my youth, I fought a lot," Yarmolenko told Xsport. "There were wins and there were defeats; itís normal for a boy for a man.

"I want to announce my next fight. I donít want to listen to that Kobelkov any longer. I want to call him out for a fight and get my revenge on all those things heís said during live broadcasts. Iím waiting for an answer."

Kobelokov, who commentates on both football and boxing is know to be something of an outspoken character in his native Ukraine.

He recently referred to all commentators at the World Cup Finals as "morons" - including himself - and admitted to receiving up to 700 letters every day from outraged viewers.
