David Moyes believes that Lucas Paqueta is starting to demonstrate the abilities that led West Ham to make him their record signing at £50 million plus.
The club hired agent Barry Silkman to finalize the deal, and it seems to be paying off well.
When asked by reporters if the deal should have been done at the price, Moyes responded positively, stating that Paqueta is settling in well and that people who see West Ham play regularly have noticed his good qualities.
However, the manager also acknowledges that there is still room for improvement and that both the team and Paqueta need to get used to each other.
Moyes also notes that Paqueta is a technically gifted footballer who has added more to his game.
The manager is looking forward to the player’s continued improvement and hopes that he will become much more apparent in the team.
West Ham: TalkSPORT man hints at David Moyes leaving in the summer
Mark Goldbridge from TalkSPORT believes that David Moyes may leave West Ham when the season ends.
There has been a lot of discussion regarding Moyes’ future at West Ham as he has struggled to move them away from relegation danger with only six league wins.
However, their big win at home against Nottingham Forest, a fellow relegation contender, would have given both Moyes and the team a lot of confidence, and they are now out of the bottom three.
Moyes has successfully guided the Hammers away from relegation fights before, and if they were to sack him and bring in a new manager, Moyes might be the best qualified to do the job.
Goldbridge has acknowledged on Ben Foster’s YouTube channel that sacking Moyes now would be illogical, but he doesn’t think a decision could be made until the summer.
West Ham has already made the mistake of parting ways with Moyes in the past, only to bring him back after struggling without him. Since his return, he has led them to a Europa League semi-final and nearly a top-four finish.
Moyes must be allowed to try and get the best out of the team in the final stages of the season, as he has played a part in signing all of the players.
With only 14 Premier League games left to play, it would be unwise to relieve Moyes of his duties.
A new manager would have little time to implement his strategies and style of play, and it would also demonstrate a lack of appreciation for the work Moyes has done at the London Stadium.
