George Moncur has spoken for the first time about his departure from the club he loves – West Ham United.
But don’t expect a bitter outburst from the Colchester midfielder who, with nine goals out of midfield so far this season, has beaten his goal tally for last term.
The 22 year old was ditched by Sam Allardyce in 2014 and said: “I would love nothing more than to go back to my club one day but I have to show that I am worth that and believe that despite our league position I am playing well.
“I’m more than happy with my own game but we need to get off the bottom of the table and out of the relegation spots.”
George remembers being told his West Ham days were a thing of the past but refuses to issue an angry outburst against then manager Sam Allardyce.
He said: “The manager has to make decisions. It was very, very hard to swallow but you have to get on with it and one day I want to believe I’ll make my way back there.
“It’s the club where my Dad played for so long. I love the place. Praps one day but I need to show I am good enough to play at the highest level.”
He believes the Hammers – despite their injury list – are a club on the up under Slaven Bilic declaring: “He has had some great results and Dimi Payet and Lanzini have really lit the club up. They are going to be fine and are looking good.
“They play some great football and I catch them whenever it’s possible. I still love the club with a passion” and again he muses “Perhaps one day!”
