West Ham United fans have reacted sarcastically to the news that their club have signed FIFA 19 PS4 player Edi Garibovic.

The Hammers revealed that they had ‘expanded their eSports presence’ with the arrival of Garibovic, who has officially signed a contract with the London club.

It is an indication of where modern football is heading, and Garibovic has even been handed a West Ham shirt with his name and number.

The news was not exactly terrifically received by the West Ham fans on social media, however, with not too many caring that much.

A few supporters were keen to know whether Garibovic can play at left-back or in central midfield, with Manuel Pellegrini’s side currently having injury problems in those two areas.

A selection of the Twitter reaction from the West Ham fans, who will see their team face Crystal Palace in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon, can be seen below:
