Benrahma shared with journalist why He wants to leave West ham


According to Dean Jones, Said Benrahma of West Ham United is having to “control his feelings” and “not lash out” due to his lack of playing time so far this season under David Moyes.

Speaking to GiveMeSport on September 29, a former journalist for Eurosport insisted that the Algerian international player will be “feeling let down” whenever he is moved down the London Stadium’s pecking order because of the intense competition in David Moyes’ improved squad, which could be a problem for several of his teammates.

The former Brentford forward has started five games in all competitions so far this season with just 303 minutes of Premier League action under his belt since the new campaign got underway after playing an integral role throughout last season.

Jones believes that Benrahma is having to stay calm over his lack of opportunities but has to make sure he is making the most of the chances when they present themselves as he has dealt with “again and again”.

He said: “Well, it’s a problem that Said Benrahma has again and again, and he’s having to control his own feelings and not lash out when he probably feels like he should be in the team.

“And he’s also having to stay calm so that when he gets the opportunities, he actually makes the most of them.

“Obviously, he’s going to be feeling down whenever he is nudged down the pecking order at West Ham, but it’s such seems to be the story of his life at West Ham, and he’s dealt with it again and again, and he just has to keep on bouncing back and proving that he deserves more game time.”

Tough spot now

New arrivals such as Mohammed Kudus, James Ward-Prowse and Konstantinos Mavropanos not only provide some brilliant depth to this West Ham United squad but should also serve as a warning to every player at the club that they can be displaced.

The Hammers will benefit from increased squad depth as they aim to participate in all four competitions this season, including those in Europe, but some players may get concerned for their first-team spot as a result.

And that fear has certainly fallen on Benrahma especially after his crucial role for the club last season, playing all of 50 games as they triumphed in the Europa Conference League.

Such is the tough competition in Moyes’ squad right now after he suffered from a depleted attacking unit last season, Benrahma will now have to fight for his place and prove why he deserves more minutes at the London Stadium.

With the emergence of talents, Kudus and Mavropanos in particular, in positions that the Hammers already have settled names in, they have added competition and an added drive to the squad.

This should, by all means, mean players will have to improve or risk being left behind.
