Former Liverpool star Stan Collymore has slammed West Ham after news emerged that the Hammers charge an eye-watering £700 for a child to become a mascot.
It was revealed that the mascot's parents were tasked with footing the bill, which is the most expensive in the whole country. After hearing the concerning news, Collymore was quick to criticise the club.
Speaking to the Mirror, he raged:
"It's something I've railed against for years now and the new figures which came to light last week just go to show there is no shame at clubs despite the millions and billions they are earning."
However, it is not just West Ham
