Flocking to Twitter, many West Ham United fans have been left in awe of a social media update following an official announcement by the club.
Around two weeks ago, the Hammers dropped some news which was bound to prompt applause from a huge set of supporters.
Indeed, as they previously confirmed, West Ham’s tribute to Bobby Moore, Geoff Hurst and Martin Peters would be unveiled at the London Stadium before their Europa League home opener against Rapid Wien last night.
As promised, in an official update via Twitter, the club unveiled their statue depiction of the legendary Hammers trio just outside the stadium, and it’s safe to say that many West Ham fans are overjoyed with the gesture.
The tribute, which pays homage to West Ham’s 1965 European Cup Winners’ Cup victory, features Peters, Hurst and Moore standing triumphantly and hoisting the trophy aloft – a sweet reminder of a seminal moment in the club’s history.
Flocking to this ‘beautiful’ club update, here’s what some Irons fans had to say:
West Ham fans love statue unveiling…
“It’s about time, it looks amazing, can’t wait to go see it in person”
“This is quality”
“Actually looks quality”
