Faubert to quit West Ham

Julien Faubert says he will quit West Ham in the summer after launching a blistering attack on the club for their treatment of him for missing their defeat to Birmingham.

Faubert was accused of walking out on the side ahead of the 1-0 defeat at the start of the month, but the Frenchman (who has just one year left on his contract) is furious that his name has been dragged through the mud, as he was preoccupied with his baby son in hospital.

''My story with West Ham is at an end," he told the Daily Mail. ''I still have two months to play for them in theory this season, but I know that they will not call on me. I worked flat out for them even when my mother died, and I have never created any problems.

''At the time of the Birmingham game my newly-born son was ill and in hospital. I spent the Friday and Saturday with him, and could not go to training.

''My bosses knew the situation. On the eve of the match they told me I was in the reserve squad, but when I showed up on Sunday the assistant manager told me the first team needed me as a player was injured. So I jumped in my car, rushed home and then on to Upton Park, but when I got there - surprise, surprise - nobody was injured and I was not in the squad.

''I left the ground, and went to see my son as he'd had a relapse. On my way I got a phone call saying that a lad [James Tomkins] had got injured five minutes before kick-off, and that I had to come back to replace him - but that was impossible.

''Afterwards the bosses said that I had not wanted to return, and that I had lacked respect towards them. They wanted to tarnish my name and my image. Birmingham. This chapter is now closed - but so is mine at the club.''
