Manuel Lanzini

Squad Number: 10
Position: Midfielder
Born: 15th Feb 1993 (Buenos Aires, Argentina)
Signed: 21st Jul 2015 (£9,000,000)
Contract: 4-years + 2 year option
Previous Club: Al Jazira Club

KUMB Awards: Best Signing (third place) 2015/16.

Manuel Lanzini plays as an attacking midfielder for West Ham. He made his first team debut for River Plate in August 2010 at the age of just 17.

In 2011/12 he sent the season on loan Fluminense where he made 37 appearances, scoring five goals. After returning to River for the next two seasons he joined Al Jazira on loan in 2014, becoming the youngest foreigner ever to feature in the Arabian Gulf League in doing so.

After a season with Al Jazira, West Ham brought Lanzini to England on loan with view to a permanent deal. That clause was triggered in July 2016, with Lanzini signing a four-year contract with an option for a further two years. His shirt number changed from 28 to 10 ahead of the 2016/17 season.


 

2016/17 Match Notes & Ratings

2-1 v Burnley (a) 21st May 2017
by Gordon Thrower

Classiest act on the pitch in a match that was desperately short of class. Just pipped for MOTM by Ayew.

2-1 v Burnley (a) 21st May 2017
by David Fletcher

You can always rely on Lanzini to produce a top class performance. Still as creative and tenacious as ever even in a deeper role.

0-4 v Liverpool (h) 14th May 2017
by David Fletcher

As ever the most skillful player in the West Ham team. When the ball is at his feet, anything can happen. Wasn't the best of days but there is one more match to remedy that.

1-0 v Tottenham Hotspur (h) 5th May 2017
by Gordon Thrower

Superb. Not the prettiest of goals but that’ll probably bother him about as little as it bothers the rest of us.

1-0 v Tottenham Hotspur (h) 5th May 2017
by David Fletcher

Well what can you say... He's different class. He makes things happen out of nowhere, turns defence into attack with one drop of the shoulder. His pace and intelligence unlocks defences. A massive goal that set West Ham on their way to a crucial three points. More than deserved his MOTM award.

2-2 v Sunderland (a) 15th April 2017
by Staff Writer

If we were going to do anything it was likely to come through him and Carroll. Probably the classiest player on the pitch in a match bereft of much in the way of class.

1-0 v Swansea (h) 8th April 2017
by Gordon Thrower

As ever he was the focal point of creativity in a match that was rather short of the stuff. I do not want to see him dive again though.

0-3 v Arsenal (a) 5th April 2017

If we were going to do anything it was likely to come through him and Carroll. Probably the classiest player on the pitch in a match bereft of much in the way of class.

2-3 v Leicester City (h) 18th March 2017
by Gordon Thrower

At the heart of all the good stuff that we did. Fine free-kick. MOTM.

2-3 v AFC Bournemouth (a) 11th March 2017

Bar one chance in the first half, he was invisible.

2-2 v West Bromwich Albion (h) 11th February 2017
by Gordon Thrower

Beginning to emerge from the shadow of that bloke who used to play for us. Constantly teasing and probing. Unlucky not to notch a double.

3-1 v Southampton (a) 4th February 2017
by Staff Writer

Bar one chance in the first half, he was invisible.

0-4 v Manchester City (h) 1st February 2017

3-1 v Middlesbrough (a) 21st January 2017
by Staff Writer

Given a new lease of life as the team's primary creative force, the wee man enjoyed another decent afternoon.

3-0 v Crystal Palace (h) 14th January 2017
by Gordon Thrower

Showed signs of coming out of the shadows. Pulled strings and we would all be raving about his goal were it not for…..

0-5 v Manchester City (h) 6th January 2017

Not at all unfortunate to be hooked at half time because something had to change.

0-3 v Southampton (h) 25th September 2016
by Gordon Thrower

Wasn’t quite the same after being kicked out of the game. Like Payet needs to impose himself on the game more.

 

2015/16 Match Notes & Ratings

1-2 v Stoke City (a) 15th May 2016
by Staff Writer

Made little contribution to proceedings before going off at half time.

3-2 v Manchester United (h) 10th May 2016
by Gordon Thrower

Some fine work for the goal but overall a little on the quiet side.

(Replaced Nolan) Enough useful touches to suggest that this may be a decent signing if he gets a run in the team.

1-2 v Manchester United (h) 13th April 2016
by Staff Writer

Flitted in and out of things a bit and his second half was more out than in.

3-3 v Arsenal (h) 9th April 2016
by Gordon Thrower


2-2 v Crystal Palace (h) 2nd April 2016
by Gordon Thrower

Quiet but took the goal well.

2-2 v Chelsea (a) 19th March 2016
by Gordon Thrower

Fine goal and some excellent link up play throughout before tiring a bit in the second half.

1-1 v Manchester United (a) 13th March 2016
by Gordon Thrower

Flitted in and out of things a bit and his second half was more out than in.

3-2 v Everton (a) 5th March 2016
by Staff Writer

The goal was an absolute beaut. I just wish he were English so he could be ignored by Hodgson and kept under wraps for international breaks.

1-0 v Tottenham Hotspur (h) 2nd March 2016
by Staff Writer

Found it tough as Dimitri Payet's replacement in the centre of the park. Still managed to do what none of our strikers did though and found the back of the net late on.

1-0 v Sunderland (h) 27th February 2016
by Staff Writer

Another not quite up to the heights he can reach but still not a bad game until he was subbed.

5-1 v Blackburn Rovers (a) 21st February 2016
by Staff Writer #2

Another not quite up to the heights he can reach but still not a bad game until he was subbed.

1-2 v Newcastle United (a) 16th January 2016
by Staff Writer

A quieter game for him this evening – thugh he wasn’t shy of putting in what I believe we are supposed to refer to as “a shift”.

1-0 v Wolves (h) 9th January 2016
by Staff Writer

Was looking good until his untimely premature exit.

2-0 v Liverpool (h) 2nd January 2016

2-1 v Southampton (h) 27th December 2015

(Replaced Song) A welcome return – in the second half he was everything that the luckless Zarate had tried to be in the first.

2-1 v Chelsea (h) 24th October 2015
by Gordon Thrower

Lanzini and Payet alongside each other? That purring noise you can hear is coming from me. Worked damned hard off the ball as well, though that’s not what catches the eye.

3-1 v Crystal Palace (a) 17th October 2015
by Gordon Thrower

Payet has been getting all the “best signing” plaudits but this chap has been a revelation. Yes his undoubted skills catch the eye but next time you watch him have a look at the donkey work he gets through to track back, Deserved the goal as reward for the hard work. MOTM.

3-0 v Liverpool (a) 29th August 2015
by Gordon Thrower

Scored one, made one, popped up in attack, popped up in defence. In the city that the Beatles legged it from as soon as they could he was “Here, There and Everywhere”. MOTM.
