David Moyes confirms West Ham captaincy plans

West Ham United head coach David Moyes has, on Friday, confirmed his plans for the captain’s armband at the London Stadium moving forward.

The captaincy role at West Ham was of course left up for grabs ahead of the new term, on the back of Declan Rice’s departure for capital rivals Arsenal.

A whole host of Irons stars, in turn, were tipped for the role in the media, with experienced pair Tomas Soucek and Aaron Cresswell amongst the frontrunners.

To this point, however, David Moyes has opted for another.

Across each of West Ham’s first four Premier League fixtures, Kurt Zouma has lead his teammates into action.

Speaking to the media ahead of his side’s return to action against Manchester City this weekend, the subject of his captaincy plans was therefore put to David Moyes once more.

This comes with an official replacement for Rice yet to be named.

West Ham’s boss, though, appeared to confirm that Zouma will maintain his skipper status for the season ahead, explaining:

“Kurt will continue as captain.

“He’s done a good job, we’ve won three and drawn one of the opening four games, so he will continue in the role.”
