And he might just go down in folklore as a true Hammers hero now after his antics yesterday at Elland Road.

It wasn’t his performance that caught the eye as much as something he did after Michail Antonio’s winner yesterday, however.

Said Benrahma helps West Ham fan after on-field police chase

The 26-year-old Algerian has produced some magical moments on the pitch since joining West Ham United.

Perhaps his highlight came yesterday, however, and he didn’t even have a football at his feet.

A West Ham fan charged onto the pitch following Antonio’s last gasp winner and a police officer from the Yorkshire constabulary swiftly rugby tackled the not so fleet-footed Hammer.

Absolutely brilliant.

The bond between this set of players and the fans is like none other I have ever witness in my 37 years as a West Ham fan.

It really is great to see. Hopefully the lad who ran on the pitch yesterday didn’t get in too much trouble.

Benrahma’s actions proved how much he values the support of the West Ham faithful.
