- Masuaku reveals players are excited to be playing at London Stadium
- The French defender has quickly settled into his new surroundings
- Masuaku praises the whole squad for their impact during the game
West Ham United defender Arthur Masuaku reveals the players are excited to be playing at the new Stadium and hopes it can help them move onto another level following their first Premier League win over Bournemouth on Sunday.
Masuaku has wasted no time settling into his new surroundings following his recent £6.2million move from Olympiacos and produced another impressive display at left-back.
The French defender was thrilled to see his side get off to the perfect start at London Stadium and hopes it can be the catalyst for another memorable season.
A Club-record home attendance of 56,977 saw Michail Antonio score a dramatic late winner to seal all three points and Masuaku believes the new facilities can only help them grow stronger as a team.
Masuaku said: “It’s a beautiful stadium. I had seen it when I came to sign for the Club at the Juventus game.
“It is a great stadium, the pitch, the atmosphere, it really is special and we are really excited to be playing in this stadium.
“After the loss to Chelsea last week, the most important thing for us was to get the victory.
“I think that the starting eleven did their jobs and that was then supplemented by the guys that came off the bench.
“We take away three points and that now puts us into tenth place in the Premier League and we will now begin to concentrate on the next game.”
Masuaku is cup-tied for Thursday’s UEFA Europa League play-off round second leg visit of Astra Giurgiu to London Stadium, but will be available again when the Hammers travel to Manchester City in the Premier League on Sunday.
