Dyer out of the Stoke clash but he isn’t injured…
The crisis at West Ham deepened last night after it emerged that Kieron Dyer did not travel to Stoke for today’s crunch Barclays Premier League game after a row with boss Avram Grant.
Sportsmail understands that Dyer took exception after the Hammers manager suggested the injury troubled midfielder was only fit enough for a place on the bench.
It is believed the former England man responded by suggesting that if he was not fit enough to start the game then he was not fit enough to play at all.
Grant did travel with the team yesterday, but because he will be marking the Jewish festival of Yom Kippur he will not be present when his side, without a point in four games, kick-off at lunchtime.
Dyer’s latest clash is another twist in his troubled time at Upton Park since a £6million move from Newcastle in 2007, with his £60,000-a-week wages singled out by owner David Sullivan as an example of money wasted by the club.
Been one of our best players this season, oh dear…
