West Ham Refute Daily Star Wages Claim
West Ham have issued a statement refuting claims made in today's Daily Star about the wage bill at the club.
The Star claim to have a document that outlines the wages of the players and managers at West Ham. The West Ham statement says that "the figures contained within it are totally inaccurate and the document is a hoax." The statement goes on to say that "West Ham United will make no further comment with the matter now in the hands of the club's lawyers and the Press Complaints Commission."
The Star's article says that West Ham's annual wage bill is £36.7m. They claim that Luis Boa Morte, Kieron Dyer, Matthew Upson and Scott Parker pick up £70,000 a week and that Danny Gabbidon and Carlton Cole are paid £50,000 a week.
