West Ham star challenges Ukrainian TV pundit for fight after criticism

Wednesday, October 10, 2018

It's come to light that West Ham United winger Andriy Yarmolenko isn't best pleased with all the press coverage he's received since moving to England.

Yarmolenko, who joined the Hammers from Borussia Dortmund for £17.5 million over the summer, has had a slow start to life at East London.

The Ukraine international has upped his game in recent games, scoring in wins over Everton and Manchester United, but that hasn't stopped him receiving criticism back home.

And it appears TV pundit Wladimir Kobelkov has overstepped the mark with what he has had to say about Yarmolenko.

It's not exactly clear what Kobelkov said to trigger Yarmolenko, but the 28-year-old is ready to let his fists do the talking.

Speaking to Ukrainian broadcasters Xsport, Yarmolenko has issued a challenge to fight Kobelkov.

In my youth, I fought a lot. There was wins and there were losses. It's normal for a boy, for a man.

I want to announce my next fight. I don't want to listen to that Kobelkov any longer.

I want to call him out for a fight and get my revenge on all those things he's said on air. I'm waiting for an answer.

It remains to be seen whether Kobelkov takes up Yarmolenko's offer to settle scores the old fashioned way.
