A lot of West Ham fans want to club to sell Manuel Lanzini as Football.London has reported that manager David Moyes has lost his patience with the Argentinian midfielder.
This season, the playmaker has managed to play 19 times, via Transfermarkt, but has only managed three assists. He has failed to rekindle his old form from the 2015-2018 campaigns, in which he managed 19 goals and 11 assists, due to various injuries. In particular, the Cruciate Ligament Rupture he suffered in the summer of 2018 which ruled him out for 256 days.
This injury meant that he missed 31 games and seemed to be the beginning of the end for the 27-year-old, and now fans feel as though it is time to sell him and focus on other players in the squad.
He has not made an appearance since the 2nd February, with Moyes preferring Pablo Fornals, who has proved his selection by contributing with one goal and two assists in his last three appearances, via Transfermarkt.
Here are what fans have been saying about the player:
West Ham manager David Moyes has lost his patience with Manuel Lanzini, whose future at the club looks uncertain.

He’s not the only one. A real shame. Since his injury he’s been nowhere near the player he was. It’s understandable, as he’s obviously worried about his knee, and as a result avoids all contact. Unfortunately, time to move on.

Cant blame Moyes, I personally think Zini has turned into the Jesse Lingard of West Ham… poor performance after poor performance

Was never the same player after his return. The EPL is to physical and ML is not strong on his feet. Current midfield is strong on feet and technical. Lanzini is only technical. Time to say goodbye

Sad to see such a talented player leave but he hasn’t put in a shift whatsoever.

Sell him then dave if he is not willing to put the work in

He hasn’t had the effort (from what it looks like) on the pitch, doesn’t have any desire to challenge for balls or even make runs forward at times
