David Moyes gives his trophy winning medal to his father

West Ham United manager David Moyes gave out his trophy to his father after winning the Uefa Conference League trophy with West Ham.

The Hammers took an early lead as Said Benrahma’s converted a beautiful penalty goal for the Hammers in the 62nd minute.

Fiorentina drew level from Giacomo Bonaventura’s 67th minute strike to bring the game to a one all draw.

Jarrod Bowen in the 90th minute put the Hammers back in front after making an incredible solo run through the Fiorentina defense to compliment a beautiful assist from Lucas Paqueta.

Manager David Moyes after the victory had these to say in relation to him giving hid medal to his father “He was the first one, I thought I should get it round his neck,” said the jubilant West Ham boss. “He’s watched a lot over the years and I hope he enjoyed it.”

“The moment he went through I was edging down the touchline,” he added. “If it was going to be anyone, I thought ‘this is the moment’.

“But I couldn’t do a full Mourinho knee slide as the grass was a bit dry and I’d have ended up on my belly.”

“I actually think the last two years have been an incredible journey,” David Moyes said.

“It’s an incredible achievement to do so well in Europe, you look at some of the very good teams who find it a struggle. It’s great credit, we’ve turned a disappointing season into a super season.”

Bowen has come a long way from beginning his career at non-league Hereford, and he is planning to party.

“I’m so buzzing, all of us are just going to go mad I think,” he said. “You have to celebrate.

“When the final whistle went I just thought ‘this party is going to be crazy’.

“I’m just a little boy from Leominster who never thought I’d be talking like this. My family are crying and it just shows me how far I’ve come.”

This victory saw the Hammers secured a first piece of silverware since 1980’s FA Cup, and a first European trophy since 1965, on a historic and emotional night in Prague.
