‘I need people to train well’ – Moyes makes honest admission about 24-year-old’s performances

West Ham United striker Gianluca Scamacca has been the subject of a slightly concerning claim by David Moyes. The 24-year-old Italian forward was signed from Sassuolo in the summer transfer window for a fee of around £35 million, as relays the HammerNews.

However, he has struggled to establish himself at the London Stadium, and his fitness and injury problems this season have been a real concern. Despite being back in training for some time now, Scamacca has not started a game for West Ham since January 4th.

When asked by the Evening Standard about his forward options, Moyes suggested that Scamacca still isn’t quite ready. While the Hammers boss may not have helped Scamacca with the way he sets up his team, the Italian must do more if he wants to secure a spot in the starting lineup.

With Scamacca having already been linked with a move away from West Ham, it remains to be seen what the future holds for the promising young striker.

Speaking to the Evening Standard, Moyes said:

“I think first of all, individual form would be the key – I need people to train well and look good so we can give them that opportunity. I’m hoping that all three can do it. Gianluca’s still behind it a bit.”
