Ilunga: I Lost the Confidence of the Manager
Local Doncaster newspaper The Star has some interesting quotes today from Ilunga on his three month loan move to Doncaster Rovers.
"It is a chance for me to get my career back on track. The deal is for three months and I hope I can do well and stay all season. I would have signed for the whole season.
"I have to play well during this three months and after that we will see what happens.”
“It was difficult to be there (West Ham) because I lost all confidence from the manager and the players. Maybe the best solution was for me to come here."
In the same report Doncaster's manager Dean Saunders says,
"West Ham (are) letting us have him for a sixth of his wages. He is earning a lot less than the players who are here."
The Telegraph say West Ham are still keen on signing Carlos Tevez on loan but the club say their chances of succeeding are around one per cent.
TalkSport claim West Ham are keen to sign AZ Alkmaar midfielder Rasmus Elm in January. The Sweden international however is apparently being tracked by a number of clubs.
