David Moyes has identified the change he’s overseen in East London as the new West Ham, with Declan Rice & Jarrod Bowen at the very heart of it.
Moyes’ Hammers tonight face off against Eintracht Frankfurt in the Europa League semi final 2nd leg in arguably our biggest match in modern history.
West Ham trail 2-1 but will go in full of belief, knowing that previous experience has shown we are more than capable of rising to the occasion.
“To be in a semi-final here with West Ham is huge for us as a football club,” stated the boss. “I’ve got a great group of players – a group of players who have resilience, character and all those things that go with it.
“It wasn’t too long ago we were fighting relegation. It’s been a great climb and I see no reason that shouldn’t continue.”
Describing the transformation as the new West Ham, Moyes outlined the importance of our key young players and the heights they could reach in West Ham history.
“I’m trying to give a “new West Ham” because I want people to see a new young team. Jarrod Bowen and Declan Rice are new, young, up-and-coming, huge players who the new young supporters at West Ham can get a jersey and support them. They’re the future for West Ham.
“As we all know, there were greats like Sir Trevor (Brooking) – all the people of the past who all the older generations talk about.
“So I’m really hoping that this new generation of supporters will be talking about the likes of Jarrod Bowen and Declan Rice for games like this.”
