SO SAD: Head coach David Moyes is suspended during training by West ham board and…

The belated transfer of Pablo Fornals from West Ham to his new club has dealt an immediate blow to the midfielder.

The confirmation and ratification of Pablo Fornals’ transfer to Real Betis on Friday was a momentous day for West Ham supporters.

In a typically elegant manner, the Spaniard announced the end of his Hammers career by sitting down to give a video message to fans in which he seemed to be holding back tears.

When he pushed to join a rival team in London during the summer, a particular cherished former captain gave us more than that.

After putting on subpar performances on the field—possibly saving his worst for last in the draw against Sheffield United—Fornals’s appropriate goodbye cemented his status as a cult icon.

Undoubtedly, supporters of West Ham United will closely monitor his performance with Real Betis in Spain.

Yet for the soon-to-be 28-year-old, things have not started off to the best of starts.Fornals, a midfielder, has suffered an immediate setback at his new team following his transfer from West Ham.

Manuel Pellegrini, the former manager of the Hammers, surprised everyone by leaving Fornals off of Betis’ Europa Conference League roster.

This implies that Fornals, who assisted West Ham in winning the competition last season, will not participate in the knockout stages.

Real Betis had an extremely active winter transfer window in contrast to West Ham. January started with the arrival of Johnny Cardoso. On the last day, Fornals, Cedric Bakambu, and Chimy Avila all joined. Their starting lineup for the Europa Conference League would differ from that which was registered for the Europa League at the beginning of the season because to the departures of Luiz Henrique, Andres Guardado, and Borja Iglesias.

A European team may make three changes to its roster prior to the knockout stages, under UEFA regulations. Furthermore, as stated by MD, Pellegrini has chosen to bench important first team players like Fornals.

That’s unfortunate for Fornals since Betis will be hoping to win and emulate West Ham.
