West Ham boss David Moyes described Aaron Cresswell as ‘invaluable’ when speaking to reporters yesterday, as quoted by Football.London.
The 30-year-old has been in superb form this season.
It has been quite the turnaround for Aaron Cresswell. It was only a few months ago when the Hammers fans were begging for David Moyes to get rid of him.
In all fairness, the criticism was justified at the time. The former Ipswich Town man really struggled at left-back.
His switch to centre-back after the first game of this season has been instrumental to his turnaround in form, however.
Signed for just £4 million in the summer of 2014 (Mirror), the 30-year-old is West Ham’s third longest serving player behind Mark Noble and Winston Reid.
Aaron Cresswell, who earns £45k-a-week (Football League FC) has been a great servant for the Hammers.
And David Moyes raved about the West Ham ace when speaking to reporters yesterday afternoon, as quoted by Football.London:
“He is a very good boy to work with, I have really enjoyed working with Cressy on both occasions, he has been invaluable. More importantly he is calm, he’s consistent and plays regular which is very important in modern football. He has found a bit of a role that he is comfortable with at left centre back. I think his assists this year have been really important. He has stepped up with his deliveries and his involvement in the game and we want him to keep doing that.”
Cresswell has been vital to West Ham’s fine start to the 2020/21 Premier League campaign.
Invaluable is probably a good description for the 30-year-old. And who would have thought that the 30-year-old would be described as that at the start of the season?
Let’s hope that the Hammers ace continues his fine form for the remainder of the season.
