Smiling Cresswell: ‘You live for this as footballers”


aaroncresswell-e1444287834803Aaron Cresswell is still drooling over the Spurs victory and the incredible London Stadium victory on Friday night.

Playing because of injury to Arthur Masuaku the left back produced a rock solid performance and showed that in one position at least we have enormous competition.

He said: “It’s possibly one of the best games I’ve played in a West Ham shirt, and certainly the atmosphere was brilliant. It’s a massive win and I’m sure the fans will have enjoyed it. It’s happy days for everyone – three points.

“The game finished and I was over the far side with Nobes and Ginge and you’re looking at the crowd, seeing how happy they are and singing and dancing after the game, and that’s what you live for as footballers.

“The fans put bums on seats every week, they’re there in their numbers so it’s nice to give something back and it’s nights like this that I’m sure they enjoy.

“It’s nice to be back in the team. You want to play in massive games like this. We all know we haven’t had a great season, but that in a way makes it even better beating Spurs and more or less stopping them win the title.

“Everyone put a real shift in, especially Jonny [Calleri] up top. Every time he has got a chance in the team, he’s worked so hard. He really has.

“It’s a massive win and I’m sure the fans will have enjoyed it.”
