Frank McAvennie floats compelling Sebastien Haller conspiracy theory

Sebastien Haller has really struggled to impress since joining West Ham in the summer of 2019. And Frank McAvennie suggested that David Moyes just isn’t a fan of the Ivorian, when speaking to the Daily Record.

There is certainly some truth to that, but Haller quite simply needs to do more and make things happen for himself.

The Hammers striker would do well to watch videos of players like Bobby Zamora and Marlon Harewood in action. Neither player was the most talented but they worked and made a real nuisance of themselves for opposing defenders.

And that’s what the 26-year-old needs to do more of.

Frank McAvennie floated a theory to the Daily Record that David Moyes just doesn’t fancy Haller:

“I’ve spoken about Ajeti before. I asked David Moyes about him, the manager at West Ham, and he didn’t know who he was. That’s not a good start for the boy. He never got a game. You look at the boy Haller that they brought in, you look and he’s not been doing anything. So you wonder why he’s not been getting a game at West Ham, when you look back now.”

It is clear for everyone to see that Moyes isn’t Haller’s biggest fan. And perhaps the Scot didn’t know anything about the Ivory Coast international when he took over at West Ham last December.

If that is the case, it really shouldn’t be an excuse, however.

Moyes’s job as a manger should be to get the best out of his players. And he quite simply hasn’t done that with the 26-year-old.

Haller’s future at the London Stadium seems bleak. It really would be no surprise to see him moved on either in January or the summer.

And knowing our luck, he will light it up with his next club if and when he does eventually leave West Ham.
