YOU ARE VERY USELESS! Fans Call For The Head Of Nigerian Star After An Horrible Penalty Miss | Read More Here!

Nigerian winger who plays at Ademola Lookman was called out by fans of the club and blasted by boss Scott Parker after spurning a last-gasp penalty at West Ham in the Premier League.

Lookman was almost sure of earning the Cottagers a point when he stepped up to take a penalty six minutes into additional time at the London Stadium on Saturday.

Hammers goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski could scarcely believe his luck as Lookman’s impudent Panenka effort – a penalty chipped down the middle and into the net – backfired spectacularly.


The abysmal attempt drifted harmlessly into the grateful Fabianski’s arms and proved to be the last kick of the match as West Ham won after a farcical finish.

One stunned fan questioned whether the shocking spot kick was the worst penalty of all time.

‘And in the 97th minute,’ they boggled. ‘What is he thinking?’

Others cruelly joked that Lookman would be shunned at Fulham’s training ground on Monday and compared his fiasco to successful Panenka penalties taken by the likes of Spain legend Sergio Ramos and Argentina icon Lionel Messi.

Fulham boss Scott Parker was understandably infuriated, having expected his side to equalise and earn a precious point minutes after West Ham’s opener.

Parker admitted:

‘I think at the moment it’s so raw. My emotions are one of disappointment, anger a little bit.

‘I’m not going to shirk away from the penalty miss. I’m angry and he is as well.

‘You just can’t miss a penalty like that. If you take one like that, you have to score.

‘He knows that. When you’re young, you have to learn quickly. The boy has made a mistake, that’s clear.

‘He’s disappointed, and rightly so. Everyone can miss penalties, of course – but in a certain way.

‘This is football, growing as an individual – and we’ll learn from this.

“Ade has been fantastic since he’s been here. He needs to learn from what happened tonight.

‘[It’s] not because he’s missed a penalty but because he’s taken one like that – and at that point in the game. He’s put himself on show.

“He’ll bounce back. He’s an unbelievable character who’s made a bit of a mistake.”

BYE BYE KANTE! Ngolo Kante Will Leave Chelsea In January? | Antonio Conte Wants Him In Inter

Reports have emerged that Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante is a priority transfer target for Inter Milan, which could see him reunite with former boss Antonio Conte at the Serie A club.

Kante has been ever-present in Fran Lampard’s team this season but he continued to be linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge, with Real Madrid reportedly keen admirers of the 29-year-old.

Inter are looking to bolster their midfield after a mixed start to the Italian season, which sees them outside Serie A’s top four after six matches played.
