Saido Berahino has decide to take to the Twitter machine after West Bromwich Albion rejected a fourth bid for his services from Tottenham Hotspur.
Sad how i cant say exactly how the club has treated me but i can officially say i will never play Jeremy Peace.— Saido Berahino (@SBerahino) September 1, 2015
Well, that might change things a bit, if he means he'll never play for Peace again? Perhaps West Brom think they can convince him otherwise after the transfer window closes, but this was clearly sent out in an attempt to get a deal done last minute. Whether or not he'll go back on this and play for the Baggies this season we don't know, but he wants a move, and he wants it now.
But, as it's been pointed out by quite a few people, he might not have meant that at all. He might have meant that he's not going to play games with Peace, and that he's going to get on with it. This would be the exact opposite of what everyone initially thought the tweet meant. If that is what he means, sending it at this time and wording it this way was pretty ill-advised.
Having never met Jeremy Peace, I'm not sure if this is going to test his resolve. Maybe it'll just make him more defiant and he'll text a bunch of knife emojis to Daniel Levy. But usually, this leads to the deal getting done -- remember Darren Bent's tweets?
Update: Here is a funny old tweet from 2013 about related subject matter.
