West Ham defender Frederik Alves Ibsen: I'm fifth choice here - for now

West Ham defender Frederik Alves Ibsen admits he's well down on the pecking order in manager David Moyes' plans.

Alves Ibsen joined West Ham in January from Silkeborg.

"When we played the FA Cup against Manchester United (February 9), Angelo Ogbonna was injured, and then Moyes sent me, Fabian Balbuena and Issa Diop out and to warm up," he told tipsbladet.dk.

"He called Balbuena and sat him down again because he was a little doubtful with something in his calf. Then there was me and Issa Diop. It was Diop who was called and came in, so I'm the fifth man right now. My time will probably come. I prepare by working hard and getting better on the training ground."
