WEST HAM have been applauded for brutally trolling Manchester United over their pursuit of Issa Diop with a hilarious tweet.
United failed in a bid of £45million plus Phil Jones this week but are still keen on a move.
And just to rub salt into the wounds, the Hammers posted a highlights video of the centre-back, captioned: “ We’ve got Diop, Issa Diop, I just don’t think you understand… ”
Fans demanded the West Ham social media admin be instantly given a raise for their cheeky tweet.
Others commended them on their “top s***housery”.
Most United fans found the funny side of things, with one replying: “Even west ham laughing at us lol.”
West Ham were celebrating Diop’s first anniversary at the London Stadium since signing from Toulouse for a then-club record £22million when the tweet was posted.
Hammers fans hope there will be more to come after United launched a stunning bid to take him to Old Trafford.
SunSport exclusively revealed defender Jones, 27, was included in an attempt to sweeten the deal.
