West Ham United’s main rivals were enraged after Essex-born attacker Alex Pritchard displayed a brilliant piece of tomfoolery for Sunderland vs Millwall yesterday.
The 29-year-old Sunderland attacking midfielder is a born and bred West Ham fan, and grew up in Orsett, Essex.
The 29-year-old has forged a decent career for himself since leaving West Ham, playing for the likes of Tottenham, Brentford, Norwich, Huddersfield and now Sunderland.
Most West Ham fans won’t remember Pritchard’s time with the Hammers academy. But is seems as though he’ll go down in East London folklore after what happened yesterday…
Alex Pritchard celebration for Sunderland vs Millwall
The 29-year-old scored for the Black Cats yesterday, during his side’s 3-0 win over Millwall in the Championship.
After he scored, Pritchard went over to celebrate in front of the Millwall fans.
And what followed was truly superb, food for the soul if you will!
The ex-Hammer did the famous crossed Irons, much to the annoyance of the traveling Millwall support:
That is absolutely brilliant to see!
West Ham might not be playing for another three weeks or so.
But the Alex Pritchard celebration for Sunderland against Millwall yesterday would have got the Hammers’ fans juices flowing, that’s for sure.
The sooner that club football, and the rivalries that come along with it, returns the better in my opinion.
