A spokesman for Taco Bell said: "We are delighted that Pablo is returning to duties. He is a first class till operative and was employee of the month in the June before he joined West Ham. It seems wires were crossed somewhere along the line. Pablo thought he was going to work in a fast food outlet in Green Street and was very surprised when he found himself playing in the English Premiership instead."
He added: "Like all Mexicans, he loves his football but his skills are much better suited to greeting and serving to be honest, providing the customers speak Spanish. He kept trying to explain to Avram Grant that he was not a footballer but his English is not so good so something appears to have been lost in translation. But then, he looked around at the rest of the team and thought, well if Spector, Hines, Faubert, Gabbidon, Sears, Piquionne, Boffin, Kovac, McCarthy and Stanislas are good enough, maybe operating a till in Taco Bell qualifies you for a place in West Ham's squad!"
