Senegal global Cheikhou Kouyate has responded to the racism controversy surrounding West Ham United.

In a statement, a spokesman said: "West Ham United have today terminated the contract of Director of Player Recruitment, Tony Henry, with immediate effect following his unacceptable comments that were widely reported in the press".

Henry was suspended by the Hammers earlier this week after being quoted by the Daily Mail saying that African players "cause mayhem" when they are not in the team.

Henry's dismissal came after the English Football Association opened an investigation.

West Ham suspended Tony on Thursday morning after the story broke the previous evening and, following an investigation, they have made a decision to part company with the 60-year-old.

How Many Times Have The Philadelphia Eagles Been To The Super Bowl?
What they're saying is you have to pressure the quarterback, and I think that's probably the No. 1 thing in the passing game. Chung is also known as a shutdown defender on opposing tight ends - and Zach Ertz is Philadelphia's leading receiver.

He is said to have cited the behaviour of former striker Diafra Sakho, a Senegal worldwide, as one of the reasons behind the stance - which leaves West Ham open to allegations they break discrimination laws. And in reference to the "African players" scandal, he says that there were never any race issues at the club during the period in which he was an employee.

It is also alleged Henry sent a January 27 email in which he wrote: "We don't want any more Africans".

Although Moyes has denied these claims as to the reasoning behind him consistently overlooking Sakho, and insisting his team selection is based on footballing ability alone, it would go some way to explaining why out of the 28-year-old's 17 showings across all competitions this term, only two of them were from the outset. "Morale is good. We're on the back of a pretty good run and we want to keep it going", said the Scot.

"It's nothing against the African race at all".

Senegal global Sakho was last month sold to Rennes after finding his first team opportunities limited at the London Stadium.
