Pablo Fornals named Pablo Zabaleta when asked by Marca to pick some of the best players currently at West Ham.
The Argentine has enjoyed a successful, highly decorated, career in the English game.

The 35-year-old joined Manchester City from Espanyol in 2008. And he went on to win two Premier League titles and an FA Cup at the Etihad.
Zabaleta then joined West Ham on a free transfer in the summer of 2017. The South American has gone on to rack up 79 appearances in all competitions for the Hammers (Transfermarkt).
The 35-year-old has been a consistent performer for West Ham. But his powers have clearly begun to wane over the past 12 months.
Zaba’s time in east London coming to an end
The right-back is set to leave the London Stadium this summer (90 Min).
He has clearly made a big impact with the Hammers, however.
Fornals, who joined West Ham in the summer of 2019 was asked by Marca to name the best players currently at the London Stadium. The Spaniard picked Felipe Anderson, Robert Snodgrass and Mark Noble. And he reserved a mention for Zabaleta as well:
“Then there’s Pablo Zabaleta and his history.”
The experienced Argentine has never let West Ham down. But in truth, it is probably the right time for the 35-year-old to leave the Hammers. Sentiment aside, of course.
David Moyes will surely be looking to bolster his right-back options this summer.
Although the recent emergence of Jermey Ngakia is a huge bonus for West Ham.
