West Ham man is not happy with Moyes after being pushed down the pecking order – report
Said Benrahma feels let down because of his lack of game-time under David Moyes at West Ham this season.
West Ham ace Said Benrahma hasn’t played as much as he would have liked this season, especially over the past few Premier League games, with David Moyes preferring to play Lucas Paqueta out on the left hand side.

And as a result, the Hammers winger feels let down by the Scot, according to football journalist Dean Jones, via GiveMeSport.
In fairness to Moyes, the Algeria international quite simply hasn’t done enough when he has been given a chance this season.
Benrahma is one of the most frustrating players we have. We all know how good he can be but he just doesn’t produce the goods consistently enough.
In spite of that, it seems as though the winger feels like he deserves to be playing more regularly…

Dean Jones has outlined why the former Brentford attacker isn’t entirely happy right now.
Jones told Give Me Sport:
“Well, it’s a problem that Said Benrahma has again and again, and he’s having to control his own feelings and not lash out when he probably feels like he should be in the team. And he’s also having to stay calm so that when he gets the opportunities, he actually makes the most of them. Obviously, he’s going to be feeling down whenever he is nudged down the pecking order at West Ham, but it seems to be the story of his life at West Ham, and he’s dealt with it again and again, and he just has to keep on bouncing back and proving that he deserves more game time.”
The 28-year-old has got some cheek if he really feels hard done by not to be playing regularly – he’s been nowhere near good enough this season.
West Ham have been doing just fine without Said Benrahma as well, so David Moyes is in a real position of strength.
Next time the winger gets a chance, he has to make a real contribution inside the final third and show everyone that he has what it takes to make a difference for the Hammers.
As things stand though, it seems like Benny could be heading for the London Stadium exit door either in January or next summer. The onus is very much on him to prove me wrong with that statement.
