West Ham striker Demba Ba claims he did sign autograph and he wasn’t the tired one

You only sign when you’re winning

Demba Ba has used his Twitter account to deny that it was his refusal to sign an autograph that sparked a brawl at West Ham’s end-of-season party.

The Senegal international was widely reported to have told a fan at the gala evening that he was too tired to provide a signature.

But he tweeted: “I did sign the autograph. I never refuse to sign autograph to the fans.”

He followed that up with a counter-claim that it was actually the supporter who had cited tiredness, not him.

Ba added: “He came to me saying he is tired to watch us play and was looking for confrontation.”

Update: West Ham are claiming that the Twitter account is fake… except it’s featured on Ba’s official website. D’oh!
