WEST HAM fans were left fuming after ex-Irons defender Issa Diop injured Gianluca Scamacca after just 12 minutes in a friendly with Fulham.
A late tackle from Diop forced Scamacca off at Craven Cottage before Flynn Downes replaced him.

One wrote on Twitter: “Pure and utter reject. Don’t know why the f*** he’s gone in on Scamacca like that in a friendly. Useless.
“No Antonio in the squad through injury today either.”
Another added: “Ex West Ham defender Issa Diop has just stupidly injured West Ham’s £45m Italian striker Scamacca in a mid-season friendly. What is even the point anymore?”
A third said: “Hahahahahaha Antonio and Scamacca down you can’t write this.”
A fourth unhappy Hammer said: “Sometimes I feel like we’re the only club that get injuries during crucial stages of the season….”
A Whites fan said: “If we’ve ended up nobbling Scamacca after he scored that handball goal against us.”
West Ham return to Prem action at Arsenal on Boxing Day, so the Italy international will have just nine days to recover.
Moyes’ side then travel to Brentford four days later before rounding off their festive period at Leeds on 4 January.
