David Moyes told Football Daily that Tomas Soucek is a ‘managers dream’ following West Ham’s 2-1 win over Tottenham on Sunday.
The Hammers boss also spoke in awe of his opposite number, Jose Mourinho, and how he is an ‘incredible competitor’ and ‘one of the hardest opponents’.
During his career, Moyes had never beaten Mourinho, but he managed to end that run yesterday.
Nonetheless, after West Ham kept their Champions League hopes alive at the London Stadium, Moyes praised his warrior-like player Soucek and the trophy-laden coach, Mourinho.
“He’s been great,” said Moyes. “He’s a manager’s dream. You have got somebody who wants to play.
“He is really humble about being here and working here. He is a great boy to have, and he’s been a very good player for us.
On Mourinho: “There’s always a first for everything, isn’t there? Jose Mourinho has had great teams, whether it be Chelsea. He’s an incredible competitor. You only need to see the medals and trophies he has won. He’s up there with all the elite managers.
Moyes added in his press conference about Mourinho: “They have an excellent manager who has got an array of medals and one of the hardest opponents to play against over many years.”
Well, there could be the possibility that West Ham could finish as the top dogs in London at the end of the campaign.
At this moment in time, the fourth-placed side are two points above fifth-placed Chelsea, nine points clear of Spurs, who are sitting in ninth and have played a game less.
Whilst Arsenal, who historically have been the dominant club in the capital, are sitting tenth and facing the possibility of dropping into the bottom half.
