Moyes on Benrahma

David Moyes was delighted with Said Benrahma this afternoon on his return to his old club.

Speaking to reporters post-match the 58-year-old Hammers manager spoke of his wonder goal at the Brentford Community Stadium  “Yeah, it was good, he has been waiting on that one for a year and we have as well. He practices it a lot and today he hit the target and maybe fitting that he did it here.”

Reminded that Benny also scored a goal in the pre-season friendly against Celtic last week Moyes replied “Yeah, we have a lot of hope he will find his goalscoring touch and assists and a bit to do with his game. We want good competition and hopefully, we have lots of players threatening to score goals this season.”

Benrahma joined from Brentford last year on a combined fee of £25m with an initial £4.25m loan fee followed by a £20.75m permanent transfer fee once conditions were met on the obligation to buy clause within the loan contract.

This could be an important season for the former Brentford player as he stakes his claim on a  regular starting position in Moyes first eleven in the Premier League.
