West Ham sack player recruitment director Tony Henry

Predicted Brighton XI vs West Ham

Senegal global Cheikhou Kouyate has responded to the racism controversy surrounding West Ham United.

West Ham United have sacked director of player recruitment Tony Henry following allegations of racial discrimination, the Premier League club said on Friday.

It was reported that Henry had said African players "cause mayhem" when not selected in the team.

Despite Henry's suspension from club activities pending full investigation by the club and the FA, Kouyate - the captain of the Senegal national team - has made his feelings known with a bold message on social media.

"The West Ham United family is an inclusive one where, regardless of gender, age, ability, race, religion or sexual orientation, everybody feels welcome and included". I am pleased to see that the club have acted so swiftly to investigate any accusations of discrimination and Im sure theyll reach a satisfactory conclusion.”.

West Ham moved quickly to suspend Henry for his comments and they have now terminated his contract.

Henry insisted the policy had "nothing against the African race at all".

It is later claimed he said: "Sometimes they can have a bad attitude".

In the original email, Henry wrote: 'We don't want any more Africans and he's not good enough'.

It was claimed to have been sent to a senior club official and an agent, talking about a Cameroonian player also on Crystal Palace's radar, plus another possible target. He's left, so great.

Senegal striker Diafra Sakho left the club in the January transfer window to join Rennes, with Ghana global Andre Ayew heading to Swansea.
