Chelsea legend John Terry loves what West Ham boss David Moyes is doing at his boyhood club following the victory over Wolves.
West Ham got back to winning ways with a 1-0 triumph over Wolves on Sunday.
The result lifted West Ham back up to fifth place in the Premier League table, just two points behind fourth-placed Manchester United.
It has been a remarkable rise for West Ham under Moyes over the last two years.
And John Terry loves what Moyes is doing at his boyhood club West Ham.
Most West Ham fans know that Chelsea hero Terry started life in West Ham’s famous academy.
Former West Ham Academy director Tony Carr has often discussed and lamented Terry’s departure from West Ham to Chelsea as a teenager describing it as a ‘massive disappointment’.
Terry, who comes from a family of West Ham fans, would have formed part of the ridiculously talented Hammers golden generation.
And he revealed his West Ham nut dad ‘absolutely kicked off’ when he left his beloved Hammers to sign for Chelsea (The Mirror).
In the past Terry has claimed he supported Man United as a kid despite his family’s passion for the Hammers. But he has said he idolised West Ham and England legend Bobby Moore.
Knowing the history, there was no love lost between West Ham fans and Terry during his playing career.
But Terry clearly does not let that cloud his judgment nowadays.
The former England star recently declared West Ham talisman Declan Rice was the player in his position in world football (Daily Mail).
And now Terry has said he loves what Moyes is doing at West Ham and highlighted four players in particular for their performances against Wolves.
“Very impressed with West Ham and what David Moyes is doing,” Terry said on Twitter.
“Lukasz Fabianski, Declan Rice and Kurt Zouma all superb.”
It was put to Terry that West Ham right-back Ben Johnson deserved a special mention too, to which he replied: “Agreed.”
Chelsea fans love goading West Ham that they are Rice’s boyhood club.
So it is worth pointing out every now and then that we are Terry’s – and Frank Lampard’s… and Joe Cole’s.
Fair play to Terry. Some ex pros steer clear of praising rival clubs but not him. And his opinion carries some weight given he was a truly world class player in his time.
