West Ham United manager David Moyes has been questioned over his handling of Hammers star Said Benrahma.

The Scot has history of rarely praising Benrahma, and criticising him instead during his post-match press conferences.

Benrahma joined West Ham for around £30 million from Brentford in January 2021 (The Daily Mail).

It was claimed back in the summer that Moyes was keen to move the 27-year-old on for around £30 million.

The Scot seems to find it really hard to praise Benrahma, even if he has put in a stand-out man of the match performance.

The Algerian ace looked in fine fettle at the start of this season, but rather than give him a prolonged stint in the starting XI, Moyes continues to bring him in and out of the team.

And the Hammers boss has received criticism for doing that…

David Moyes criticised for Said Benrahma treatment

Football journalist Paul Brown told Give Me Sport that he’s been surprised by Moyes’s handling of the 27-year-old winger so far this season:

“Benrahma did start the season like he was going to tear it up pretty quickly. So, it is a little surprising that he hasn’t played more because I think the manager should be relying on players who look like they’re in form and at the top of their game.”

We do sympathise with Benrahma. Moyes’s man management of the Algerian has been poor over the past two years in my opinion.

It must be said though, the ex-Brentford winger quite simply needs to do more when he is given the chance to start games.

Benrahma seems to be stuck in a cycle at the moment. When he starts, he plays poorly and is subsequently dropped down to the bench for the next game.

He then comes on as a substitute and more often than not, changes the game for the Hammers. Moyes then brings him back into the starting line-up where he flatters to deceive…again.

Perhaps it would be better if David Moyes just gave Said Benrahma 10 games in a row, or something like that, so the Algerian can build up his consistency.

The Scot plays the likes of Pablo Fornals and Jarrod Bowen week in week out, regardless of whether they’re playing well or not, so surely he can do the same with Benrahma.

Hopefully Moyes manages to get the best out of the Algeria international this season. It does seem like Benrahma is destined to fail at the London Stadium, however. And that’s a real shame, because personally, I rate him very highly indeed.
