Jarrod Bowen has spoken of his admiration and gratitude for David Moyes ahead of his final game as manager for West Ham.

Moyes will depart east London after 4.5 years since returning in 2019, and in that time he’s rescued the club from relegation, qualified for Europe for 3 successive campaigns and delivered our first major trophy in almost half a century.

The Scot can leave with his held high after his achievements at the club, with West Ham now looking to push on and achieve further success under new incoming Head Coach Julen Lopetegui.

Bowen though has reflected on his time with working with Moyes ahead of Sunday, and has admitted that he owes a great deal to the manager for what he’s achieved so far in his career.

“We’ve spoken about me scoring 20 goals and being awarded Player of the Season – but they wouldn’t have been possible without him and if he didn’t bring me to the Club,” Bowen told the clubs Official Website.

“I always go back to the time where he brought me into the Club, and having the faith to bring me in from the [EFL] Championship as players in that league were sometimes frowned upon. Since I’ve been here and worked with him over the last four and a half years, we’ve had some great games, great memories and came away with a European trophy as well.

“It’s important we won the game against Luton Town and got him the send-off he deserved because what he has done for this Club is incredible. Since I’ve been here, he has kept us up, avoided relegation and has made us European winners within three years, so that speaks for itself. I don’t think he will ever be forgotten here because of what he has done.

“His door is always open for any player, and I think that is one of the best things about him. He’s not just a football manager, but a person as well, and is one of the best people I have worked with. I’ve spoken with him already on a one-to-one level to thank him for everything he’s done for me as I wanted him to know how appreciative I am of him and how I always will be for the rest of my career.”

Bowen also added that although the club fell away and lost a grip on another European run next season, he still feels its not been a bad season, with West Ham hoping to push on again next season under our new era.

“There have been games where we have been disappointed and really haven’t done ourselves favours in some of the games, but that’s down to us a players,” added the England forward. “You can’t win every game, but we know that the manner in which we lost some games this season hasn’t been good enough, but all in all I think it’s been a solid season.”
