David Moyes, the West Ham United manager, spoke about Manuel Lanzini’s injury and he admitted that he is concerned about Manuel Lanzini after he had to be subbed off due to his hamstring problem.
The West Ham United attacking player had to be substituted by Javier Hernandez, who managed to score the equalizer later on in the game, as well as Aaron Cresswell but Moyes insisted that Lanzini’s problem seems to be a more serious one. The Scot insisted that this player is irreplaceable for him and he doesn’t think that it wouldn’t affect his side in any way.
The former Manchester United coach spoke about his player’s injury as he said, according to Sky Sports: “We’ve had a few injuries and we’re just getting through. Behind the scenes, we’re just trying to nurse boys along. We hope Mano’s [Lanzini] isn’t serious. Cressy is okay, but it’s more the Lanzini one that we’re worried about. I don’t think you can suddenly say, okay we’ll go out, see if someone else is out there waiting to be bought of the level of Lanzini because I don’t think you’ve got that.”
He continued by insisting that there too many players injured in his squad: “I think we will work with the players we’ve got, but we’ve got too many out injured at the moment. Ideally, if we got a couple of players to add to the squad, it would help us, but it’s not always that easy to get the players you want. We’re working hard and we’ll keep trying to get someone.”
In the end, David Moyes claimed that he has to be happy with the final result: “In the end, I wasn’t unhappy with a point, but I have to say we missed some big chances which we could have got ourselves out of sight. I thought we played some of our best football this season, especially in the first half, but Bournemouth got strong in the second part of both halves, so in the end, perhaps the draw was the right result.”
