West Ham defender Ben Johnson is delighted playing for manager David Moyes.
After playing 19 times last season, scoring his maiden Premier League goal against Brighton & Hove Albion in December 2020, Johnson has been heavily involved this term, starting 16 matches, ten of which have ended in victories.
“I’ve not really known the manager for that long, only a couple of seasons, but some of the lads had him prior and he kept us in the Premier League then, then kept us in the Premier League when he came back for a second stint and all the lads have a great relationship with him,” Johnson confirmed to whufc.com.
“When he came in, he was assertive, and he knew what he wanted and what he could get out of every single player and he wasn’t willing to negate that.
“For me, I feel like he has a lot of faith in me and I have a lot of confidence in him on the training pitch and in games. He wants everyone to do well and for me to play well, so he’s certainly on me if I make a mistake and that’s something you want as a player, someone who sets high standards and keeps people on their toes.
“He’s been great with me and given me the opportunity in games to show what I can do. He’s put me in different positions and that shows real faith and is testament to him and to me as well that I can play in different positions and start for his side.
“I just want to repay the faith and put in good performances for him and for me.”
