Hammers boss David Moyes deserves great credit for pushing through a deal to sign Zouma two years ago.

The Frenchman is exactly the kind of player the Scot and the West Ham fans love. And the centre-back has opened up on how much he loves his manager as well…

What Kurt Zouma has just said about David Moyes will shock the West Ham United fans

The 28-year-old Hammers centre-back has been speaking to WHUFC.com about life at the London Stadium over the past couple of years.

Zouma offered an insight into what Moyes is like before big games, and what he said about the Scot might shock you.

The West Ham centre-back lifted the lid on what Moyes said to the players before our huge 3-2 win over Liverpool in November 2021:

“One thing I do remember is the manager telling us to make sure we had fun out on the pitch. He said to us: ‘Guys, this is our home. We’re against a strong side but we’re at home and we have to show them what we’re about and make it hard for them’.”

Wow, for a man who is a supposed disciplined, hard task-master, that really is quite the laid back attitude.

Most Hammers fans have the impression that Moyes is obsessed with defensive solidarity and ensuring that each and every player understands their respective roles to a tee.

However, Kurt Zouma’s comments on David Moyes’s team-talk before a huge game offers us an insight to what he’s really like.

Maybe the Scot is actually more laid back than we think. Perhaps he likes his players to have a little bit of enjoyment, as well as creative freedom, during matches as well.

You could have fooled me!
