West Ham Owner Splashes Out £100k To Fly Michail Antonio Home From Jamaica

West Ham United striker Michail Antonio had been on worldwide obligation with Jamaica yet has been flown back on a personal luxury plane in front of Saturday’s match with Wolves

West Ham United proprietor David Sullivan has sprinkled out £100,000 to fly Michail Antonio back to England from Jamaica on a personal luxury plane.

The Hammers striker scored in both of the Reggae Boyz’s World Cup qualifiers against El Salvador and the USA, remembering a long reach screamer against the last option for Tuesday.

With David Moyes’ side going to Wolves on Saturday, Sullivan flew Antonio back to London on a personal luxury plane on Wednesday to ensure he can play.

Antonio will prepare with his West Ham colleagues on Thursday and is accessible for choice in front of Saturday’s match.


Michail Antonio thanked David Sullivan for flying him home

He never represented the Three Lions at any level but has already scored two goals in three caps for Jamaica since making his debut against Panama.

Jamaica currently sit in sixth place in the final round of North and Central American qualifying for next year’s World Cup and are seven points of a play-off spot with six game remaining.

Antonio has also been in fine form for West Ham so far this season and has scored seven goals in 13 appearances across all competitions.

He was named the Premier League player of the month for August after scoring four goals and providing three assists in three matches.

The Hammers are currently third in the Premier League after 11 matches, level on points with champions Manchester City and three points behind leaders Chelsea.
