The West Ham United ace has just returned to action.
West Ham legend Trevor Brooking spoke to BBC Radio Five Live on Monday night, and praised Manuel Lanzini, suggesting that the Argentine is his favourite player .
The 26-year-old Hammers ace has only recently returned to action, having been missing for the entire season after suffering an ACL injury during pre-season training last summer.
West Ham have really missed the talented play-maker, and his return to the squad is expected to coincide with Manuel Pellegrini's men making a real push for the top seven.
Lanzini is an incredibly popular player at West Ham, and it seems as though he is admired not only the club's fans, but also one of the Hammers' most legendary players.
“Now Lanzini – my favourite player – came back at the weekend and was excellent."
West Ham currently sit in ninth spot in the Premier League table, four points adrift of seventh placed Wolves, and if they are to have any chance whatsoever of earning Europa League football for next season, Lanzini will have to be on his very best form between now and May.
