Moyes hails record-breaking Hammers

Manager David Moyes was delighted with West Ham’s record-breaking Europa League win at Freiburg last night.

The Hammers’ 2-1 triumph in Germany – courtesy of goals from Lucas Paqueta and James Ward-Prowse – meant they set a new English mark of 17 games unbeaten in European competition, beating the record of 16 set by Don Revie’s Leeds, Bill Nicholson’s Tottenham and Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City.

“I got told about the record yesterday, and I was quite thrilled,” said Moyes, who guided West Ham to the Europa Conference League title last season.

“To even be level with the two managers in question…I have to say I was delighted with getting the win.

“The record is always really good to get, but more important was winning.”

West Ham sit top of Group A with two wins from two after seeing off Backa Topola in their pool opener,

Moyes added: “Getting those three points is so good, particularly when many would consider this the hardest game in the group.

“I see Freiburg and Olympiacos both as competitive and very difficult to beat in this group. It’s probably the most difficult group we’ve had in a European campaign so far.

“I just feel the boys are doing a brilliant job. We’ve come away from home, got a result, our run in Europe continues and we’ve done really well. Hopefully, it keeps building.”

West Ham return to Premier League action on Sunday with a home game against Newcastle.
