David Moyes has been slammed for subbing off second half substitute Ademipo Odubeko during West Ham’s FA Cup tie against Manchester United.
Odubeko, 18, was brought on in the 54th minute but failed to see out the match to the dismay of fans on social media.
West Ham supporters didn’t take too kindly to their manager bringing on the promising striker before subbing him off in extra-time.
One West Ham fan wrote: “Mate that’s horrible man management, what’s the point in that?”
A second tweeted: “Sorry but that’s disgusting from Moyes.”
A third added: “Well that’s ruined the kids career.”
Odubeko, who was previously on the books at both Manchester clubs, was drafted into the first-team following the sale of Sebastien Haller to Ajax.
His debut for the club was short lived, but the Republic of Ireland youth star has a bright future.
The Hammers went onto lose their FA Cup clash with Scott McTominay firing his side into the next round following his strike in extra-time.
Odubeko was born in Ireland, and is of Nigerian descent. Odubeko represented the Republic of Ireland’s under-16 side in their successful 2017 Victory Shield campaign. He was selected to play for the Republic of Ireland national under-17 football team in two matches against Finland in March 2019
