Former West Ham ace Paul Konchesky has launched a scathing attack on Upton Park boss Alan Curbishley.

Konchesky, who left West Ham for Fulham earlier this summer, claims a lot of the players at Upton Park are unhappy under Curbishley's reign.

The England international suggests Curbishley's influence at the club prevented them from landing Darren Bent and keeping Carlos Tevez.

Konchesky, who played under Curbishley at Charlton and West Ham, told The People: "There was, and still is, a lot of unhappy players at the club who don't like him.

"I am one of them and he knows that, and that is why I left the club," he fumed.

"I know there are a lot of players who don't think he is any good.


"I am sure that is one of the main reasons Carlos Tevez didn't stay at the club, and also why Darren Bent refused to sign for West Ham. It was because of the manager.

"He is hard to get on with. He doesn't have much banter; he is serious all the time, he keeps himself to himself and doesn't get involved - very old school."
