David Moyes well be trying to make changes to Said Benrahma’s game.
The player is still without a goal following his move to the Hammers and the manager may be becoming frustrated with the problem,
And according to some reports , a change of approach may be underway.
Since Benrahma has joined the Hammers in what was originally a loan deal but is now permanent at close to £30m. He has gone on to make 17 Premier League appearances for us – a far cry from the 17 he managed for Brentford last season.
Speaking on a recent episode of the U Irons podcast, The Athletic’s Roshane Thomas revealed a possible change of ways being introduced to the Algeria international’s game.
He said: “I’m not saying Benrahma is like Cristiano Ronaldo, but I remember when Ronaldo was first at Manchester United and he would do all these stepovers and all these tricks, and I reached a point where I thought, ‘Less is more – you’re talented, but less is more’.
“I feel like that’s what Moyes is trying to coach into Benrahma – you can do all the tricks but do it at the right time. Obviously, he’s made great progress, but I feel, in time, he will come good.”
ClaretandHugh says: Thomas has got it right in our view. Benrahma is clearly very talented and tricky but may well be required to find a more direct approach. There could easily be a surge of confidence when he scores that first goal but in the meantime he is in very good hands as the boss starts to get to grips with his game,
