West Ham fans absolutely rip into Manuel Lanzini's display vs Gillingham

West Ham were tested to the limit by League One side Gillingham in the third round of the FA Cup today, and some Hammers fans tore into Manuel Lanzini for his poor display.

The Argentine joined West Ham initially on loan in 2015, before making his move a permanent one the following summer for around £9 million (Daily Mail).

The 26-year-old immediately endeared himself to Hammers fans.

The last 18 months or so have been a real struggle for Lanzini, however.

He has had problems with injuries, granted, but that is no excuse for his tepid performances recently.

Lanzini seems totally lost. He lacks any kind of passion or fight, and the games continue to just pass him by.

Most worryingly for West Ham, the 26-year-old’s work rate seems to have been almost non-existent of late.

There have even been calls from the London Stadium faithful to move him on this month.
