“I’m very happy for Jarrod. He was again a big threat to the opponents, he started the season in excellent form,” said coach David Moyes about the performances of Bowen, who did not fit into the latest nomination of the coach of the English national team, Gareth Southgate.
The author of the winning goal in June’s Conference League final against Fiorentina in Prague headed home Lucas Paqueta’s cross at the end of the first half at Kenilworth Road. However, throughout the game he faced boos from the home fans regarding his relationship with girlfriend Dani Dyer, a contestant on the popular British dating game show Love Island. “Bowen, your girlfriend is a s..a,” chanted from the stands.
But the hero of West Ham silenced them not only with a goal, but also with a subsequent celebration, when he put his finger to his mouth. “He answered the home fans in the best way – with a goal. But it’s terrible what he had to face. Players and coaches are insulted and people get away with it,” said Moyes. His team calmed down before the end of the match with Kurt Zouma’s second goal, Luton was only reduced in the 92nd minute by defender Mads Andersen.
“I’m really excited about the last few weeks. From the great entry into the Premier League and from the new players and members of the implementation team. I believe that we will stay on the path we have started,” said Moyes, who was missing the captain of the Czech national team, Tomáš Souček, due to health problems.
The midfielder was injured in the first half of Saturday’s game in Brighton when, after a standard situation, he was reaching for the ball with his head, but the opponent’s goalkeeper had previously been there. After a blow to the head, Souček was treated on the lawn and subsequently had to substitute due to the risk of a concussion. The other Czech in West Ham, defender Vladimír Coufal, played the entire game against Luton on Friday.
