Jack Wilshere called West Ham teammate Aaron Cresswell shocking after the club’s latest training session.

Robert Snodgrass shared a picture of himself, via his personal Instagram, in training for the Hammers and Wilshere commented in order to call the 31-year-old outstanding and cheekily point out Cresswell was shocking again.

“Outstanding today @snods_10 @cresser3shocking again,” wrote Wilshere via his verified Instagram account.

Snodgrass even replied to Wilshere’s claim about Cresswell in order to make clear the pair were just having a bit of fun, he added laughing emojis to his response and even brought Ryan Fredericks into the conversation.

“He didn’t want it! He’s turning into fredo,” wrote the Hammers winger.

OPINION

It seems Manuel Pellegrini had his West Ham players doing some sort of training drill which they turned into a competition on Thursday, based on Snodgrass and Wilshere’s interaction. While Wilshere was clearly having a bit of fun at Cresswell’s expense, the Hammers full-back probably doesn’t want his teammate calling him shocking in public, even if it was in a joking manner. After all, the Hammers full-back gets his fair share of stick as it is. Cresswell was slated by a section of Hammers fans for his display against Newport County on social media and was ripped apart by many Hammers fans for his performance in the 5-0 loss to Manchester City.  In fact, it hasn’t been just fans that have been disappointed with the left-back’s displays this season, as Tony Cascarino stated on talkSPORT that he thought the defender was ripped apart by Riyad Mahrez during the clash with Manchester City.  Considering that the 29-year-old hasn’t featured in the league games that have followed the opening day loss to Manchester City, in a game in which he averaged a terrible rating of 5.29 on WhoScored, then the last thing he needs to be is struggling in training drills.
