West Ham new-boy Armstrong Okoflex has raved about his teammate Said Benrahma, when speaking to the club’s official website.
Hammers boss David Moyes brought the 19-year-old to the London Stadium from Celtic last month.
And the teenager has made a fine start to life at West Ham.
He scored against his old club Celtic during the Hammers’ 6-2 pre-season friendly win at Parkhead on Saturday.
Okoflex seems to be a real talent.
Hopefully he goes on to fulfil his potential and promise at West Ham.
Okoflex raves about Benrahma
The 19-year-old spoke to WHUFC.com and shared how much the Algerian winger has impressed him since he swapped Glasgow for East London:
“The likes of Said Benrahma and Jarrod Bowen, I’ve been trying to learn as much as I can, especially Benrahma because of the way he dribbles with the ball and is creative. I’m happy to be here around the first team whenever I can.”
Hopefully Benrahma is ready to light it up for West Ham this season. He has certainly looked the part in pre-season so far.
And it was great to see him score a really well-taken goal against Celtic on Saturday.
That would have done him the world of good confidence wise.
Having someone like Benrahma to learn from should do wonders for Okoflex’s development as an attacking midfielder.
And who knows? Perhaps the 19-year-old may have some kind of role to play for the first-team this season.
