‘100% Sign Him For Next Season’ ‘Love This Geezer’ – West Ham Fans Are Hoping Club Secure Deal For 31-Year-Old

West Ham manager Manuel Pellegrini has said that Samir Nasri transformed the Hammers’ fortunes after coming on against Huddersfield at the weekend.

The Frenchman replaced Mark Noble on the hour mark with the score still 2-1. The Terriers then went 3-1 up prior to the Irons staging a dramatic comeback.

Nasri provided the assist for Javier Hernandez’s equaliser before the Mexican headed in the winner during injury time. Pellegrini says Nasri’s contribution was pivotal in the 4-3 win:

“I also think Samir Nasri changed the game of our team and Lucas Perez was always dangerous in the box, so the three substitutes did very well and that’s the reason why you need a good squad.”

Fans on Twitter were completely in agreement with the West Ham boss. They are hoping the 31-year-old’s contract is extended beyond the end of the current campaign:

Of course, having to come from two goals down at home against a team who are doomed to be relegated doesn’t sound particularly impressive, but the character and spirit showed by the players were certainly positives.

As Pellegrini also mentions, the Irons now have the squad depth to change tack when it is clear things aren’t going well. After the last-gasp win, the London club are now two points off seventh, although they have played a game more than Wolves.
