A post on Twitter from West Ham United has got a lot of the fanbase praising club captain Mark Noble.
The tweet was a picture of the centre midfielder in the early days of his career in East London, with the caption: “Aged 20.”
This has been enough for fans to flood to the post to talk about the Englishman who has been in the ranks at the club since he started playing football.
Apart from two loan spells at Hull City and Ipswich Town, the 32-year-old has spent his whole career at West Ham, making 495 appearances, scoring 60 goals and assisting 59 times, per Transfermarkt. He made his debut in 2004 against Chelsea in the League cup, which means he has been at the club as a senior for 15 years.
From all this it is easy to see why he is such a legend at the club, and some supporters are wondering how he can stay involved in East London after he retires, with one asking: “Manager one day?”
Here is what fans have had to say following the tweet:
