David Moyes expressed immense admiration for the outstanding and daring display of a West Ham United star during their match against Leicester yesterday, writes the HammerNews. Despite a 2-1 loss that ultimately relegated the Foxes, Moyes shared his thoughts with reporters following the game.
In all honesty, the Hammers players seemed to be coasting, keeping in mind the upcoming Europa Conference League final. It was evident that players like Declan Rice were not fully engaged, aiming to avoid any potential injuries just ten days before the final.
Given the circumstances, the performance was as expected, as the team’s focus lies on more significant challenges ahead. Nonetheless, Moyes specifically lauded the performance of one West Ham player during the match.
The 60-year-old Scottish manager addressed the media following the Hammers’ 2-1 defeat at the King Power Stadium, taking the opportunity to commend the performance of his captain, Declan Rice, as quoted by Football.London.
“I thought he played great. It was another swashbuckling performance from him at times today. I am really pleased how well he has played for us over the season, he has been exceptional and a credit to himself.”
