Arthur always felt loved at West Ham


By Hughie Southon

Arthur Masuaku has handed the most gracious of messages to Hammers fans after seeing his loan move to Besiktas become permanent.

Arthur took as much abuse as any player we have a seen at the club over recent seasons but he clearly hasn’t felt the same way.

He of course had his share of injuries but never really impacted over a period of time although there were occasional displays when he would have warranted a seven out of 10.

Finally, David Moyes decided to cut his losses on a player who only cost around £6 million when he joined us from Olympiacos.

Now he has become permanent in Turkey although it looked for a while as though he could be returning to the Hammers after more loss of form.

Most Hammers fans won’t be sorry to see him go but he has made it clear that he always felt wanted and loved at the club.

He declared on Twitter: “Thanks for all the messages I get from the Hammers community. I always felt loved there with you, I wish you guys the very best for the future. Arthur.”

His remarks were accompanied by crossed Hammers, heart and crown emojis.

    I have the utmost respect for King Arthur, even if his time with us was mixed, he had some memorable moments in Claret & Blue like his freak of a goal against Chelsea.
    He was never a left-back and unfortunately it was this title which sealed his fate with us.
    I wish the genuine and humble King Arthur the very best for the future ⚒⚒

    I also have appreciation for Arthur. He did try his best and, ok, so he wasn’t West Ham’s version of, say, Ashley Cole but he certainly made some valuable contributions to the team. He was pretty bloody good going forward down the left! All the best for the future, Arthur!
