Franco confirms Hammers exit

The striker, who scored for Mexico at Wembley on Monday night,

moved to Upton Park on a one-year deal last summer but will leave

when his contract expires at the end of next month. He told the

club’s official website: “I don’t know where I’ll be next season.

West Ham told me ‘bye bye’ so I won’t be with West Ham next season.

“Now my focus is on the international team and the World Cup and

then I’ll think about next season. “Of course I enjoyed my time at

West Ham. The supporters and the people were fantastic. I very much

enjoyed my year in West Ham, but now it’s finished and this is

football.”
