Diego Poyet tweets: Andy Carroll has the last laugh as he put new West Ham signing in a headlock for derogatory tweets
Poyet apologised for his comments made two years ago after joining the 27-year-old at West Ham
Diego Poyet must have thought ‘I’m never going to play with Andy Carroll’ at the time, but a series of tweets when he was 16 years old have come back to haunt him after the 19-year-old joined West Ham where – you guessed it – Andy Carroll is currently on the books.
The highly-rated teenager agreed to join the Hammers from Charlton earlier this summer, and he has already had to apologise for previously labelling the club as “scum” in another Twitter post.
Poyet also made a string of derogatory comments about Carroll in 2011 and 2012, which included comparing him to a Subway sandwich and a “donkey”.
But ever the joker, Carroll has taken the comments lightly after Poyet issued an apology on his Twitter account. In true Carroll-esque form, he accepted the apology on the son of Sunderland manager Gus Poyet makes him tea for the next month.

Carroll is currently sidelined again due to an ankle injury that threatens to keep him out until Christmas after undergoing an operation at the end of last month.
Poyet compares Carroll to a famous high-street sandwich Poyet claims former Newcastle strike-pair Demba Ba and Papiss Cisse are better options Poyet reacts to Carroll's towering header against Sweden at Euro 2012 Poyet feels Danny Boyle got more for his money than Liverpool did It could be worse for Poyet though, as at least he didn’t criticise any other of his new team-mates, such as Stewart Downing. Oh wait…
Poyet leaves his best for winger Stewart Downing The outspoken midfielder is held in high esteem despite his social media exploits, and the Hammers will be hopeful that he can help transform performances on the pitch as the fans and board seek a more attacking and aesthetically pleasing style of football before they move into the Olympic Stadium.
