Aaron Cresswell: What I want to tell my grandkids

West Ham United defender Aaron Cresswell is optimistic about winning a trophy with the Hammers.

West Ham United defender Aaron Cresswell told the club’s website that it would be massive for him personally if he could win some silverware with the Hammers.

The defender has just been named as Player of the Year in his first season at the club and he’s hoping that he’s got plenty of success to tell his grandchildren about when he eventually retires.

“I haven’t won anything during my career and winning something with West Ham, as big a club as they are, it would be massive for me personally,” said Cresswell.

“Everyone wants to get the trophies for when they finish to show the grandkids ‘here you are, look at what I’ve won’, the main thing is to try and do well for me.”

West Ham have been inconsistent this season, having a great first half to the campaign but sliding off the pace since Christmas.

With a move to the Olympic Stadium just around the corner, investments will be made into the team as West Ham look to improve their chances of winning a trophy.

One of the main aims will be breaking into the Europa League, but there’s no reason the Hammers shouldn’t target winning a competition like the FA Cup or League Cup next season.

That would give the team some real confidence and momentum heading into an adventure at their new ground and it would also help to convince more top quality players that the club are a good one to join.

For now the focus will be on ending the season well and ensuring that there is some positivity heading into the summer.
