Chris Sutton believes Gianluka Scamaka has “let David Moyes down” this season following his move from Sassuolo to West Ham.
What is the ins and outs?
Well, the Italian international £35.5 million A move to West Ham United in July caused a great deal of excitement among West Ham supporters.
Skamaka just scored 16 target at 36 The Serie A appearance has cemented himself as one of the most sought-after strikers in Europe.
but that £71,000 per week Men endure tough debut at London Stadium, scoring only goals eight target at 27 All game outings.
As a result, Sutton believes Moyes will now be disappointed with his No 7.
The 50-year-old told BT Sport last night: “I think he’s let David Moyes down in a way. David expected much more.”
In our opinion, these comments from Sutton are quite harsh.
West Ham must be patient with Skamarca
Of course, many fans will expect more eight Skamarca’s goals this season.
It’s worth noting, however, that West Ham – as a team – have struggled this season and that hasn’t helped the Italian settle down.
Skamarca, who recently turned 24, is still getting used to English football – a beast that routinely devours some of Europe’s most exciting talents before spitting them out in half.
He has had flashes and Moyes has not handled the situation well, leaving his No. 7 on the bench in his last four Premier League games.
That didn’t do Scamacca’s confidence any favors, to say the least.
Hopefully the Rome-born striker can now start to find his footing after scoring against AEK Larnaca in the Europa League.
West Ham certainly need Skamarca to do the same, as they find themselves at serious risk of relegation.
