The two clubs might have ignored League rules. Premier League will be controlling the contract on Snodgrass' contract on joining West Ham for 18 months.
Although Premier League rules state that
“no club shall enter into a contract which enables any other party to that contract to acquire the ability materially to influence its policies or the performance of its teams in league matches”
did not letRobert Snodgrass
play against his former club,West Ham
due to a contract between the two sides.
West Bromwich Albion stated that this unavailability was due to the conditions stated in the contract, but this is in a total contract with Premier League rules and this has got the League to look into this matter.
, West Brom Boss, said that this was an agreement between the two clubs before the match started but when more questions were directed to him, he said:
“I’ll have to wait and see before I answer anything that might cause me, West Ham or anybody else any trouble, I’ll wait to see what the Premier League say.
West Ham manager,
, also answered the same question:
“I don’t think it is any of my business. I am not sure it is any of yours, to be honest. The Premier League have to do what they have to do.
“Robert Snodgrass is a very good player, we will miss him a lot. We sent him with our best wishes, we did not take any fee for him because we have so much respect for him and what he has done here.”
