Arthur Masuaku should never play again for West Ham again after his horror show against Tottenham yesterday.
The 28-year-old joined West Ham from Olympiacos in the summer of 2016 for around £6.2 million (The Times).
Then Hammers manager Slaven Bilic brought Masuaku to the London Stadium and he was expected to be a big hit at the club.
Arthur has been hugely underwhelming in a Hammers shirt though…
In fact, that’s putting it politely. It could be argued that Masuaku has been appalling and his poor defensive ability and lapses in concentration have cost us dearly on numerous occasions.
The 28-year-old was at it again yesterday against Spurs.
When it emerged that Masuaku was starting for West Ham against Tottenham it really was a shock. We trust in David Moyes, but that really was a strange decision from the boss yesterday.
And the Scot’s patience with the former Olympiacos man must be wearing thin now…
Arthur Masuaku should never play for West Ham again
The 28-year-old was deployed in the left wing-back role yesterday in the hope of nullifying Spurs’s threat down the their right hand side.
Masuaku had an absolute stinker though and was at fault for Tottenham’s first goal after he lost possession inside his own half.
The Congolese left-back was dragged off early on in the second-half with Pablo Fornals taking his place.
West Ham looked so much better with the Spaniard on the pitch. Yesterday’s defeat to Tottenham was disappointing because of the fact that we quite simply didn’t perform to our capabilities.
If we were to have any chance of beating Spurs yesterday, one thing that we definitely couldn’t do was make individual errors.
That’s why starting Masuaku – a player who is prone to making mistakes, was so baffling.
The 28-year-old lived up to his reputation at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. Masuaku was incredibly weak defensively and totally ineffective going forward. Quite what the point of him is in this team is anyone’s guess. He isn’t good enough to wear the West Ham shirt.
Moyes was already debating whether to sell Masuaku in the summer according to a report from L’Equipe.
And now the Scot surely knows that Arthur must be moved on. Judging by yesterday’s performance, he should never wear a West Ham shirt again.
