‘Love this club’ – West Ham star expresses feelings ahead of history-making final

Jarrod Bowen is confident that his team has the right mindset to bring West Ham’s first European trophy since 1965 back home, writes the WHW. Bowen has been instrumental in West Ham’s success in recent years, establishing himself as a regular starter in the Premier League after joining from Hull. His performances have also put him in contention for a spot in the England squad.

Despite his aspirations to represent England, Bowen prioritizes the final with his teammates over national team call-ups. He recognizes the significance of achieving success together and winning a trophy as a team. Bowen expressed his excitement about reaching the final of a European competition, highlighting that it will be a career-defining moment for many players, including himself.

In the Conference League this season, the winger has contributed 4 goals and 3 assists, making him West Ham’s second-highest goal scorer in European competitions, just behind Antonio. Bowen emphasized the importance of finding the right balance between not getting too carried away and also caring deeply about the final. As a first-time finalist, he acknowledges the necessity of being in the right mental state for the game.

Bowen revealed his desire to be part of the squad that delivers a memorable moment for the fans, acknowledging the significant meaning it holds for them. In preparation for the match against Fiorentina, the team traveled to Portugal for a few days, providing a change of scenery and allowing them to mentally prepare for the final in a new environment.

While there has been interest from other clubs, West Ham intends to secure Bowen’s services for the long term by offering him a new contract, even though he still has two years remaining on his current deal. Given his strong ties to the club, including his family’s affiliation and his own affection for West Ham, it is logical for him to continue his career at the club.

“I love this Club and it’s an absolute privilege to play here,” he said to Official Website. “To have these moments and be preparing for a final, I would have never thought that it would had happened when I joined West Ham – so it fills me with so much pride that I’m part of the squad that could do that.”
