Lucas Paqueta is determined to give David Moyes the send off he deserves after a historic time at West Ham.

Despite their being rumours that he was growing tired of the defensive football, Lucas Paqueta clearly admires David Moyes. The Scotsman is the one who gave him his chance to shine by bringing him to England.

Unfortunately, its not quite the send off the Hammers would have hoped to give Moyes with their woeful form since the turn of the year finally catching up to them and crushing their hopes of European football. However, they still have an opportunity to end on a positive and bounce back from the heavy defeat to Chelsea.

Nobody likes to lose, and we were upset with the defeat [at Chelsea],” Paqueta told the official site. “When we don’t play as well as we wish, it’s sad [in the dressing room]. But that’s football. You always have the opportunity to do better next week. We have worked and trained hard so that we can do better in the next game, and that’s what we expect in the next match.”

“The manager has asked for a bit more concentration so that we can finish the season on a high. Of course, a few of the recent results were not what we wanted, so he has asked us to work a little more so that we can have a good end to the season.”

“It was a very hard game [in the reverse fixture]. Luton are a team that battle a lot and we had a good game, but me and [Jarrod] Bowen have been connecting really well. He understands my way of playing and I understand how he likes to play, so that makes all the difference on the pitch, when you know your teammates. I was able to assist him [in that game] and he was able to score. Hopefully this partnership can happen again this weekend and we can win.”

“In the Premier League there is no easy game, and I think they [Luton] will do everything they can to win the match. We have to do our job, and do our best to make sure West Ham win because it’s our duty. We have our supporters watching us and we want to finish the season winning at home. We have had a lot of highs throughout the season and I think we deserve to finish well with a smile.”

With rumours that the Brazilian could also depart this Summer, it could be West Ham’s final chance to say goodbye to Paqueta too. As well as being thankful to his manager, he was also thankful to the fans and his emotions today could be very telling to how set in stone his future is.

“He spoke to all of us [about his departure] and we are all very grateful for everything that he has done for West Ham. He put his name in the history books and West Ham on a different level, so I think he deserves all the recognition that he gets. He has always been a very loyal person, a very fair person with all of the players and we are very grateful and thank him for everything.”

“I hope he can leave with a home win. He deserves to leave with a smile for everything that he has done. Us, as players, will do our best to win the game to help the Club and to provide a fitting farewell for the manager.”

“I’m very thankful for the fans since my arrival. They always support me even during hard times. They’ve helped me to adapt and have recognised me with chants, filling up the stadium to support, not just me, but the team, and it is very special for me and my family. I feel very grateful for it.”
