Said Benrahma spoke to the club’s official website yesterday and shared what he’s head about the West Ham fans.
The 25-year-old joined the Hammers on loan from Brentford in October last year.
He ended up joining on a permanent £25 million deal in January, having spent the previous three months at the London Stadium on a £4 million loan deal (Eurosport).
Benny has made a slow start to life in East London but he showed towards the end of last season that he may well just be warming up to the task.
Much is expected of Benrahma this season and many believe that he will flourish when playing in front of packed stadiums again.
Said Benrahma shares what he’s heard about the West Ham fans
The Algeria international only played in front of fans at the London Stadium twice – against Manchester United in December and Southampton for our final game of the season.
They were both limited attendances, however. Hopefully the next home game that the 25-year-old plays will be in front of 60,000 screaming fans.
Benrahma told WHUFC.com what he’s heard about the West Ham fans:
“Now the fans are coming back which is great! I think it’s better with the supporters there, we feel more at home. We saw them for the last match against Southampton. I hope the stadium will be full. I really can’t wait for the fans to be there in the London Stadium. I’ve patiently waited because I’ve heard that the fans are amazing. So, I’m waiting patiently and it’s exciting.”
Let’s hope that Benrahma produces the goods in front of the Hammers faithful.
The West Ham fans will absolutely love the Algerian if he plays to his best ability and puts in the work as well.
He certainly has the ability to light up the top flight and we think that this season could be Benny’s time to shine. Let’s all get behind him and make him feel like he has everyone’s unconditional support.
