A lot of West Ham fans are emphasising their admiration for Mark Noble after former Iron Jack Collison revealed that the club captain is answering questions from young footballers in his spare time.
The centre midfielder now has a lot of spare time on his hands as football across the world has been postponed due to recent events. Indeed, it seems like he has added another reason to the list as to why he is adored by many as he is taking the time to speak to players from MLS side Atalanta United’s youth academy.
Jack Collison, who had to retire early due to various injuries, via The Independent, was praised Noble, saying that he gave “Unbelievable insight & inspiration”.
The 32-year-old has made 495 appearances at the East London club scoring 60 goals and assisting 59 times, and made his debut back in 2005, via Transfermarkt.
This emphasises the amount of experience the player has playing football at a top-level and the academy players that he spoke with will have learnt a lot from the Q&A with him.
Here is what fans had to say about the player:
What sets him apart from the rest…
Unbelievable insight & inspiration

Man’s a legend and yet there are still those that don’t get what he does. It’s about the off pitch stuff people simply don’t get… A true leader! @Noble16Mark

Love him to bits.❤ When he finally hangs up his boots he must be allowed to stay to coach, make the tea, whatever! Don’t think some people will truly appreciate what he does for the club, until he’s not around to do it anymore ⚒
