David Moyes has defended Manual Lanzini calling him West Ham’s best player and asking supporters to get behind him to return to his former form.
Many supporters were surprised when Manuel Lanzini got the nod again ahead of Pablo Fornals and some even cheered when Lanzini was substituted during this evening’s defeat to Liverpool.
The manager told reporters in his post match conference at the London Stadium “He’s arguably our best player, if not our best. I needed him as much as Arnautovic, I am desperate to get him back to those levels. I need the supporters to be right behind him. He is our flair, the person who makes the difference so he needs support but I also need him to do the right things for us. There is nobody more behind him than me.”
His words explain the blind faith he has displayed in Lanizni despite a string of poor performances by the Argentine midfielder.
