Slaven Bilic Explains What Happened To Andy Carroll After Being Chased At Gunpoint

Posted by

West Ham striker Andy Carroll was held at gunpoint yesterday in what is believed to be a targeted attack on the former England international.

Police are investigating claims West Ham striker Andy Carroll was threatened and chased by armed motorcyclists who chased him for 15+ minutes before Carroll retuned to West Ham’s training ground.

Slaven Bilic spoke about the incident today and explained what had happened.

“He is good. I just spoke to him about what happened. It’s scary but he’s OK.

He was probably targeted. He got chased for 15-20 minutes it wasn’t like 10 seconds so it was probably planned, I know that and he was very brave to do what he did. He came back to the training ground and it stopped.

He’s good, he’s OK, he’s not in shock and he acted as a really brave man. We’re all asking him the questions about it and he’s smiling. He’s not in a state of shock.

When we heard it yesterday of course we were all shocked. Sometimes you hear that happen in a foreign country but it’s happening far away and not England so we were all like: Here? In London? England? How is that possible?’ Unfortunately it is a problem.

I spoke to Andy, he was brave because they asked for his watch or whatever with a gun and he put the pedal down and he didn’t want to give him the watch, so for me it’s not about the watch but for me that’s very brave.”
