Lucas Perez clears up rumors

during the Premier League match between Arsenal FC and West Ham United at Emirates Stadium on August 25, 2018 in London, United Kingdom.

The West Ham United striker has denied he refused to warm up during the English Premier League match against Everton during the weekend

On Sunday, television cameras captured West Ham United forward Lucas Perez in what seemed like a heated discussion with the Hammer’s staff.

And many reported that he refused to warm up in the match against Everton.

But Lucas Perez took it to social media to clear up rumors.

“Given the false information spread by the media that has affected my image, I am obliged to explain the only truth: I have never ever refused to warm up in my whole career, let alone play a match,” he wrote as reported by The 42.

“The images that have been misinterpreted correspond to a talk with the goalkeeper’s coach, in which I never refused to warm up and explained what happened.”

“As a professional, I accept the decision and I will continue working hard to have as many minutes as I can,” he concluded.
