The loan signing of Inter’s Joao Mario by David Moyes and West Ham United felt like an uncharacteristic but impressive signing at the time but the 33-cap Portuguese international has not quite hit the heights in East London so far.
He is yet to score for the Hammers but he is certainly not the only member of the club’s squad who has struggled under the intense pressure of the relegation battle, which is only intensified by the club’s off-field problems.
The contrast between Mario’s reputation and his recent performance led us to ask Irons fans whether they would like Davids Gold and Sullivan to secure a permanent deal for the former Sporting winger in the summer.
The response was pretty overwhelming; 77% of them do want the club to make the transfer happen. They clearly believe there is more to come from the Euro 2016 winner and, based on his performances in that tournament, it is hard to dispute that.
