David Moyes, the West Ham United coach, spoke about this transfer window and interest in Andy Carroll and Javier Hernandez shown by other sides as he insisted that he is not planning to let them leave.
The former Manchester United and Everton coach insisted that he doesn’t want to let his strikers go as especially Andy Carroll has been doing really well recently and he has become a crucial player in his squad. To be said, Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez has struggled to gain more playing time but he is not about to leave either…
The Scot spoke about his two strikers as he said, according to Sky Sports: “I don’t want any of them to go. We have got no players here who we want to leave. We need to add to our squad. So, ideally, we strengthen. My intention is not to let anyone go. What I will say is we have got four or five strikers and the competition is tough for all of them. If we were (to let them go) it would take an awful lot of money in this window to prize them away.”
He continued by adding that Hernandez is a good player but he doesn’t fit into the system: “You would have to say the form of Arnautovic and Antonio at the start (of my tenure) has made it difficult. When I joined, nine-10 weeks ago, Javier was injured so we had to go with Marko and Michail up front in different games.”
In the end, David Moyes claimed that Chicharito can make his contribution: “They have both done really well. Chicharito is a really good player. His finishing ability is as good as there is. He thrives on balls in the box. Maybe in a lot of games, we have not been able to give him that service. You would be hard pushed to say he would necessarily be playing ahead of the two other players I mentioned at the moment.”
