Lanzini thanks fans and claims: “…we aren’t far away”

manuel-lanzini-west-ham-pre-season-training_3686081Manu Lanzini knows he and the team can rely on the fans even when fortune is hiding.

The brilliant midfielder admits the squad is angry with itself at the current situation and determined to turn things around.

And he dded: “The West Ham fans are incredible – they support us wherever we go and they always cheer us on, even if things aren’t going our way.

“We will give our absolute all to turn this around. As players, we are the first people to be angry about our current situation. Where we are at the moment is no good for anyone and none of us are happy. It’s always a wonderful feeling when you’re making the fans happy.

“The fans are a huge part of the game. We try to do our best for ourselves and our families to get results, but especially for the people and the fans that support us. We thank them for their support.”

The No10 insists thing will improve as the team putting in the hard yards on the training pitch and declares:  “At the moment the combination of our performances and league position means our confidence is not at 100 per cent. I think we need to keep things simple in the way we play in order to increase our confidence.

“I have full belief in this team. We have some very good players here and we’re all working hard to implement the manager’s ideas and to pick up more points.”

“We’ve been working on our intensity in games, and our link-up play. We’re trying to develop our game and his game all together and I hope we can succeed. We’re not far away from that.

“It’s down to our intelligence as players in terms of being able to put into practice what the coach wants from us. We are taking on his ideas and putting them into practice, in terms of the intensity, and I think we are doing well.”

  1. I didn’t know he spoke English, maybe he was misquoted!

  2. Well said Manu, looking forward to seeing some more improvements this evening COYI !!!

  3. Good to hear from Lanzini. Especially in positive way let’s hope he signs new contract as well!

  4. I really hope I’m wrong but I just can’t see us winning tonight.. If we start bad the heads will drop and that’s that’s.. God I hope Im. Wrong but we need to improve a lot to get anything.in my opinion..

  5. Tonight is huge.Playing a lot of the big guns in December and another defeat against Leicester could be disastrous on morale for players and fans.Must admit their pace up front has me worried, with our fragile confidence we need to get off to a flier.Would love to see a bit of Martinez as opposed to the very predictable Carroll.
