Chairman Jeremy Peace had publicly rejected Berahino’s transfer request after Spurs’ initial two bids were turned down over the past few weeks, and even though the north London club came back with improved offers of nearly $40 million on Deadline Day, Berahino is not leaving the Hawthorns.
The England U-21 striker has been left out of the last three squads by Tony Pulis because of the situation regarding Spurs and Berahino has made his feelings clear that he wants to leave the Baggies and join Tottenham.
However, with that not being the case, here’s what Berahino Tweeted out after West Brom emphatically turned down Spurs’ latest advanced.
Wow. Saido, that is a big statement.
Obviously the youngster is upset and seems to feel like his rise to the top is being blocked, but you cannot react publicly like that. Keep comments like that behind closed doors.
Now, what happens? West Brom have one of the brightest young strikers in the PL but he is refusing to play for them after scoring 29 goals in 83 games. Drama.
