Benrahma brings mum to West Ham

New signing Mohamed Said Benrahma bought his mother with him to the Rush Green training ground for his West Ham signing yesterday.

Benrahma’s father sadly passed away in January earlier this year and the 25-year-old winger later paid tribute to his dad after scoring a hat-trick for Brentford in February against Hull City.

Benrahma was born in Aïn Témouchent, North-West Algeria and grew up in Sidi Bel Abbès. He moved to Toulouse, France with his parents at the age of eleven and holds a French passport. Benrahma is said to be a big family man and is very close to his mum and his sisters.

Said thanked his mother on social media yesterday for all her support in his football career.

Despite leaving as a young child Said is very proud of Algerian roots and is delighted to represent his country in the Premier League and for his national team.

  1. Seems like a level headed bloke. First the gig with his bonus going to the Brentford staff, then bringing his mum to work.

    I think we’re gonna love him.

  2. Players like SaÏd, are a rare breed and along with his footballing skills and ability…..Is a level headed family orientated young man who obviously has the support of his close family and has worked hard to get where he is right now.
    He has also been the subject of speculation for some time whilst at Brentford and throughout he has shown loyalty to their cause without being unsettled. That’s the mark of a player that I want at this club.
    I wish him the very best but I think he’ll go on to be a big success here at West Ham.

  3. I agree with Geezer and The Cat 100%. Ability on the ball is important but team-spirit, humility, loyalty and hard work are vital as well.

  4. This is lovely to see and read, stay humble and honest please Said these are values alongside hard work we can relate too, good luck and COYI !!!
