Nayef Aguerd is West Ham United’s Rolls Royce after his truly sensational display vs Everton this afternoon, writes the HammerNews.
The 26-year-old joined the Hammers from Rennes in the summer transfer window for around £30 million (Sky Sports).
However, Aguerd’s West Ham career is still yet to get off the ground. He suffered an ankle injury during our pre-season clash with Rangers at Ibrox. And then after returning from injury, he suffered a further setback with Morocco out in Qatar during the World Cup.
The central defender put in one of the very best performances I have seen from any player in a Hammers shirt this season.
The Moroccan had Dominic Calvert-Lewin in his pocket, and he was an assured presence at the back for us all afternoon.
If only he had been fit all season long, things might be looking very different right now. Aguerd is cool and composed in possession, has an excellent turn of pace, is exceptional with his distribution and is incredibly strong in the air.
He literally has everything that you look for in a centre-back. He is our Rolls Royce, and I just hope that he remains fit between now and the end of the season.
Nayef Aguerd was truly sensational for West Ham vs Everton at the London Stadium this afternoon.
And the really exciting thing is that there is definitely still more to come from the Moroccan.
