David Moyes hints at further unfamiliar roles for West Ham ace Pablo Fornals

David Moyes lavished praise on West Ham United ace Pablo Fornals when speaking to reporters yesterday.

Fornals moved to the London Stadium from Villarreal in the summer of 2019 for around £25 million (The Telegraph).

And over the past two years and eight months, he has established himself as a real cult hero in East London.

The 26-year-old is an absolutely vital player for West Ham and is undoubtedly one of the most important members of Moyes’s squad.

Not only is he one of our most creative players in the final third but he is also arguably the hardest working Hammers player.

Fornals plays anywhere he is asked to and absolutely always puts in a real shift both defensively and in the final third.

The Spaniard is the most versatile player at West Ham. He can play anywhere across midfield on either wing or even in the wing-back roles!

David Moyes raves about West Ham ace Fornals

The former Villarreal ace will likely be called upon to fulfil unfamiliar roles again between now and the end of the season, especially given the fact that we have one of the smallest squads in the division.

And Moyes hinted at exactly that, when speaking to reporters yesterday afternoon, as quoted by Claret and Hugh:

“I thought he played really well in that role and did a good job for us there. Pablo is really flexible and he can play in so many different positions and while we are without Arthur [Masuaku] and have a few injuries it has left us a little bit short, without an out and out wing-back. So it is something where I am glad he came in and did a good job for us.”

Fornals was quite brilliant against Wolves in the Premier League at the London Stadium on Sunday.

And he will need to be at his best once again in the FA Cup away at Southampton tonight, if we are to progress through to the quarter-finals of the competition.

Moyes clearly trusts the Spaniard implicitly. And it will be interesting to see whether he is deployed in the left wing-back role once again for West Ham at St Mary’s tonight.
