Payet tips Moses to excel in West Ham
The Frenchman’s second goal owed much, if not everything, to Moses’ explosive run and shot, which cannoned off the bar and to the feet of Payet. The Reunion-born midfielder, composed as ever, tucked it away with the minimum of fuss.
Payet, naturally, agrees that the Nigerian’s endeavours deserved more, but he does not expect it to be too long before Moses is celebrating goals of his own.
In an interview published by West Ham website, Payet said: “He deserved to finish with a goal because his run was magnificent, but unfortunately for him and fortunately for me, the crossbar got in his way. But I’m sure, with his quality, he will score plenty of goals this season.
“He’s a player that I know because I’d already seen him play, particularly at Chelsea and in the Africa Cup of Nations. He has a lot of quality to enable him to run with the ball and he’s very quick. We saw that in the second goal. The ball came back to me again, but he did all the hard work.”
