LONDON (AP) - West Ham manager Slaven Bilic says Andy Carroll was targeted by armed motorcyclists as the striker left the Premier League club’s training ground.

Carroll told West Ham he was confronted at a junction on Wednesday.

Bilic says the armed robbers asked for Carroll’s watch, “and he put the pedal down and he didn’t want to give him the watch.”

Carroll “got chased for 15 or 20 minutes,” according to Bilic, and then returned to the training ground.

Carroll is currently out injured and Bilic says he “acted as a really brave man.”
