The 25-year-old winger returned to Brentford Community Stadium on Saturday to pursue his former club with his goal
West Ham United defender Aaron Cresswell is confident that Said Benrahma will score more stunning goals for the club in the 2021-22 season after his eye-catching strike against Brentford.
In the friendly on Saturday, the Algerian international shot from outside the penalty area into the goal of the Hammers’ 1-0 win over the hosts.
The goal was Benrahma’s third goal for West Ham since leaving Brentford on loan last October before making it permanent in January.
Creswell was not surprised by the “fantastic” goal as it was not the first time Benrahma had shown his skills in endurance shooting.
“The goal was fantastic and Said is everywhere. Getting in that position, on his right foot, is exactly where you want him to be,” said Cresswell on the club’s website.
“He has done enough in training and I’m sure he will do it again.
“There are still two weeks left and it was a tough game against a good team that got promoted last season. So it was good training for us.”
West Ham United boss David Moyes also praised the 25-year-old for Saturday’s strike and hopes it will boost his confidence before they kick off their Premier League campaign on August 15 with a trip to Newcastle United.
“It was a good goal. He waited a year for this one, right?” said Moyes.
“He trains a lot and today he hit the target. Maybe it fits that he made it here. He also scored at Celtic last week and it’s good to build your confidence that way.”
“We have a lot of hope that he will come in and find his chances, assists and all those things that have to do with his game. We want a good competition and hopefully we have a lot of people threatening to score.” Season.”
