Manuel Lanzini has sent a very clear message to David Moyes about his West Ham United teammate Gianluca Scamacca.

Scamacca scored a much-needed goal that would have done him the world of good confidence wise.

Manuel Lanzini sends a clear message to David Moyes about Gianluca Scamacca
The Argentine made his feeling on his teammate very clear when speaking to reporters last night, as quoted by Irish News.

Every player is different. I think when Gianluca started he did very well. He scored a lot of goals in the Conference League and the Premier League. Then he had an injury, but every player is different. I hope he continues to work hard and score goals for his confidence, as for us it is good.”
Lanzini has made it very clear indeed just how highly he rates his Hammers teammate and how hard the 6ft 5in striker works.
In stark contrast, David Moyes clearly hasn’t been too impressed with Gianluca Scamacca recently.
I really hope that the Scot uses the Italian striker consistently between now and the end of the season for the Hammers.
An on-form Scamacca could be the difference between us staying up and getting relegated.
