Cape Town - West Ham attacking midfielder Manuel Lanzini insists he's relishing his time at the club and is looking forward to next season.
Following the untimely departure of play-maker Dimitri Payet to
Marseille in January, Lanzini has stepped up to help the Hammers stave
off the threat of relegation with vital contributions.
The 24-year-old Argentine has scored eight goals and produced two
assists this term, including an all-important winner in the 1-0 victory
over second-placed Tottenham recently.
"The season was good for me on a personal level," Lanzini told the
club's official website. "At the beginning it was not great [as I
suffered an injury on international duty in pre-season], but then I
could achieve a good level.
"Dimi [Payet] is a great player. He left and it was not a good news
for the squad but luckily at the end I had a very good season.
"[With the win over Tottenham], we achieved the points to stay in
Premier League, which was the most important thing. We did not have a
good start of the season, but now we need to think in the next game and
the next season.
"For now, I am thinking of the next game then thinking of having good holidays with the family. I am very happy here."
