West Ham boss David Moyes has compared Jarrod Bowen to Mo Salah

West Ham manager David Moyes has named Mo Salah as the perfect inspiration for Jarrod Bowen. 

Much like the Liverpool forward, Bowen is benefitting from a late bloom in form which has led to speculation on an England call up for the winger. 

The 25-year-old has been one of the Hammers stand out performers this season, being involved in 16 goals in 29 appearances. 

“I think this season was about progression and getting the call up for England is the ultimate dream,” Said Bowen as per

“That is out of my hands, my job is to deliver on the pitch and show what I am about. That is all I can do, keep putting in the performances and the end product.”

His manager David Moyes added: “There’s nobody better at that than Mo Salah who can go as fast as you like, then slow you down in the box and then beat you very, very quickly.

“So I think Jarrod is just beginning to get a little bit of an understanding of those parts of the game better. But I’ve got to say, we want him to keep going and keep trying to get more goals, more assists and I’m pleased because he’s a good boy who works hard.”


Before this season, Bowen showed the West Ham fans a glimpse of what he was capable of. 

This season he has taken that to the next level and started to put in solid performances week in week out for the Hammers.

The Englishman has also added goals and assists to his game which has caught the attention of not only Irons, but English football. 

There is a reason he is being linked with the likes of Liverpool and Manchester City as well as speculation of an England call up. 

Bowen can’t rest on his laurels though. His fairly late surge in form in his career is no longer such an anomaly but he must work hard to maintain these levels. 

He has to work extremely hard on and off the pitch if the Hammer hopes to take his career to the next level. 

The talent is there no doubt but is the work ethic? We think that’s clear.

In other Irons news, Kurt Zouma hands West Ham huge boost with early injury return.
