Said Benrahma has sent David Moyes yet another message with stunning goal for West Ham United vs Cambridge last night.
The Hammers beat Cambridge 4-2 in a friendly clash at the Abbey Stadium last night, and it was a fairly successful run out for the boys.
Benrahma began the game on the bench last night, but was introduced as a second-half substitute by Moyes in place of Manuel Lanzini.
In my opinion, he should be starting week in week out for West Ham in the Premier League, and given the freedom to express himself. Instead, Moyes keeps him on a leash, and takes every opportunity to criticise the 27-year-old.
It really is hard to envisage a scenario where both the Algerian AND the Scot both stay at the London Stadium.
The West Ham manager clearly has something against the former Brentford man.
However, Benrahma sent Moyes another message yesterday with a moment of brilliance…
Benrahma scores brilliant goal against Cambridge
The Algerian winger demonstrated a couple of moments of sheer brilliance against the League One side last night.

And then he produced this moment of absolute magic to put the icing on the cake (WHUFC.com):
What a superb player Benrahma is.
The challenge for him now will be to start producing the goods for West Ham on a consistent basis, and to make it impossible for Moyes to leave him out.
The Benrahma goal vs Cambridge last night was a real stunner.
It would have been a huge confidence boost for him and at the same time, it would have sent yet another message to David Moyes.
The second-half of the season may well be Benrahma’s time to shine, if he is allowed to do so by Moyes of course…
