David Moyes absolutely raved about West Ham goalkeeper Lukas Fabianski when speaking to reporters yesterday afternoon.
The 37-year-old has been extremely consistent for the Hammers this season and put in yet another solid display against Manchester City yesterday.
Fabianski saved a Riyad Mahrez penalty late on in the match and it ended up earning us a vital point.
The experienced Polish ace joined West Ham from Swansea City in the summer of 2018 for around £7 million (BBC).
Fab is a hugely popular figure at the London Stadium and will be at West Ham for at least one more season. He proved yesterday that he is still more than capable of of performing at the very highest level.
David Moyes raves about Lukas Fabianski
Alphonse Areola arrived at West Ham from PSG on a season-long loan in the summer. Now, the Hammers have the option to sign the 29-year-old permanently at the end of this season and we will surely take up that option.
The Frenchman should be West Ham’s number one next term but that doesn’t mean that Fab will be banished from the squad all together.
Areola’s arrival last summer clearly helped bring the best out of Fabianski. And Moyes told WHUFC.com just how good the 37-year-old has been all season long:
“I think the big thing for me was that Lukasz Fabianski made a brilliant save on a day that was important for the Club and for the team, for lots of reasons: a point to be in Europe, for Mark Noble, you name it. It was a great and Lukasz has played really, really well this season, so I’d have to say well done to him for a brilliant save and a really important save.”
Fabianski has undoubtedly been very consistent.
Areola absolutely must usurp the 37-year-old as West Ham’s number one next season.
David Moyes is clearly a big fan of Lukasz Fabianski but the Scot is surely aware that Areola has far more to offer.
However, whether the Hammers are able to afford the Frenchman’s wages next season remains to be seen.
