One-time West Ham winger Savio Nsereko has been fired by his latest club for unprofessional behaviour.

Savio, who cost the club around ?5million was signed by former Director of Football Gianluca Nani from Brescia in 2009 and made just a handful of appearances for the Hammers before being allowed to leave.

Since then, the former German youth international's career has been something of a train wreck, leading him to arrive recently at German fourth tier club FC Pipinsreid. However once again Nsereko has been let go, after he failed to attend training on a regular basis and allowed himself to become unfit.

"The club and the player have found that there are irreconcilable differences in how the player achieves, alongside a professional occupation, through a regular training and practice practice, a fitness status that allows a return to professional football", read a statement released by Pipinsreid.

Coach Roman Plesche added: "Our goal was to recommend Savio again for higher tasks, but he did not show the necessary desire and, unfortunately, was inconsistent. I had a friendly relationship with him from the beginning, but I had to act in the spirit of the club.

"For Savio, personally, I would like to see him join a professional club that gives him the opportunity to show his best. I'm convinced that, under professional conditions, he can it again."

Since leaving West Ham, Savio's meandering career has led to him joining clubs as varied as Fiorentina (Italy), Chernomorets Burgas (Bulgaria), SpVgg Unterhaching (Germany), FC Atyrau ( Kazakhstan) amongst others.

And in 2012 he was accused of and later arrested for staging his own abduction, in an attempt to extort a ransom fee of less than EUR3,000.
