Issa Diop continues to look very good for Fulham, making West Ham United‘s decision to sell him seem like a massive mistake.

West Ham manager David Moyes decided to allow Diop, 26, to join Fulham in the summer transfer window for around £15 million (Sky Sports).

However, maybe it was just the poor coaching that he received at West Ham.

Diop has been in brilliant form for Fulham recently, and the decision to sell him in the summer now looks like a really bad one…

West Ham made big mistake selling Issa Diop

Whilst moving him on from the Hammers seemed like the right call at the time, it seems now like Moyes just failed to get the best out of the central defender.

Given our current injury concerns in the centre-back department and the fact that we sold Craig Dawson in January, we could really do with Diop at the London Stadium right now.

In 18 Premier League appearances for Fulham this season, Diop has averaged 1.2 tackles, 1.5 interceptions and 2.7 clearances per game (Who Scored).

He has won an average of 1.3 aerial duels per game. Diop has made 53.1 passes per match and has recorded an impressive completion rate of 85.5% (Who Scored).

The former Toulouse man looks like a complete centre-back at Fulham – the kind of player we were desperately waiting to see at the London Stadium.

His success at Craven Cottage is not a good look for David Moyes.

In my opinion, the 26-year-old is quite obviously receiving better coaching and clearer in-game instructions from Marco Silva than he ever did from Moyes.

Ask any Fulham fan and they will tell you just how impressive Issa Diop has been for them this season. And if Moyes could turn back time, he would surely try harder to make thing work for the 26-year-old at the London Stadium.
