Ricardo Vaz Te: Handed in a transfer request late in the summer window

Ricardo Vaz Te: Handed in a transfer request late in the summer window

The Portuguese forward handed in a transfer request late in the summer window in an effort to force through a move elsewhere.

He was, however, to be left frustrated as the deadline came and went with him still on the books at Upton Park.

A lack of first team opportunities led Vaz Te to look elsewhere, but he must now re-focus on the battle for starting berths.

Allardyce is happy to still have the 26-year-old involved, with West Ham searching for an attacking spark - with Andy Carroll injured and Modibo Maiga goalless.

The Hammers boss said: "Ricardo has never had a bad attitude.

"What he is is a frustrated footballer. He thinks he should be playing on a more regular basis.

"Opportunities will arise. If he takes them, he will be in the team."

t's why Mourinho is so successful. He gives players a specific, limited set of functions to perform. They are but a cog in a machine. Do no more, do no less. I assume he learnt it from LvG :)

really hope that someone in the mainstream media spots that the Bayern manager played for and managed Barcelona quite well, and thinks to mention it in the build up. That would be really interesting.
