Zabaleta sends message of gratitude to West Ham United fans

West Ham United have had a turbulent season so far, which has included a managerial shift.

David Moyes took over from Slaven Bilic earlier this month and has so far overseen two matches.

The Scotsman – who had failed spells at Manchester United, Real Sociedad and Sunderland – has recorded one defeat and one draw in the Premier League.

Friday night marked Moyes’s first home game as the team hosted Leicester City at the London Stadium and it was a poor start for the Hammers.

Marc Albrighton put the 2015-16 league champions ahead after eight minutes, but Cheikhou Kouyate later responded with an equaliser.

Neither side could find the winner before the final whistle, which means that West Ham sit one point from safety after 13 games.

Pablo Zabaleta, who joined the East London outfit on a free transfer from Manchester City in the summer, has paid credit to the fans.

While speaking to the club’s official website, the full-back said:

“We must say ‘Thank you’ to the fans because they were incredible and brilliant during the whole game. We know that they probably want to see the team in a better place in the table, I know that, but at least we tried to win the game. They saw the team with a different attitude and, as I said, they were incredible, so thank you for the great support.”
