Mark Noble is retiring at the end of the season and Spanish striker Toni Martinez has posted a Twitter message, praising the West Ham ace.
The 35-year-old West Ham club captain will hang up his boots in just a couple of week’s time after a magnificent 18-year senior career with the Hammers.

Noble has made 548 appearances for West Ham and has bagged 62 goals and 61 assists (Transfermarkt).
The Canning Town born midfielder bleeds Claret and Blue and despite not playing much over the past two years, he still has a huge influence at the London Stadium.
David Moyes trusts Noble implicitly to carry out numerous tasks at the club before they are even brought to his attention. Replacing the 35-year-old will be impossible but keeping him around the club in some kind of capacity will surely be a formality.
But for now, it’s all about the final two games of the season and most importantly, Noble’s final game at home for West Ham.
Spanish striker posts Twitter message to Make Noble
Toni Martinez spent two years at the London Stadium before leaving to join F.C. Famalicão in the summer of 2019.
He then moved to Porto a year later.
Martinez was a popular player at West Ham but was never really given a sufficient chance to shine.
The Spaniard has been in fine form for Porto and has bagged 10 goals this season. What might have been eh? That’s a chat for another time though…for now it’s all about Noble.
The 24-year-old took to Twitter and paid tribute to his former club captain…
The Spanish striker posting a Twitter message to Mark Noble proves just how much the midfielder is adored by everyone who comes into contact with him.
Not seeing Noble in a West Ham shirt after this season will seem really strange. As mentioned earlier though, hopefully an opportunity awaits him in some kind of capacity at the London Stadium.
