West Ham defender Ogbonna admits attitude adjustment needed

West Ham defender Angelo Ogbonna says they've faltered this season due to attitude.

While Ogbonna admits injuries have hurt the Hammers this season, he reckons a bigger reason for their poor form is that they stopped trying to prove themselves.

He said: “Last season everyone wanted to show something because we had a new manager, new players. Everyone wanted to prove something.

“Maybe this year we were a little bit relaxed – and it is more competitive this season. Maybe when we are too confident you think it is going to be too easy.

“Sometimes we didn't play like us. We played so sloppy, two or three mistakes. After this I hope there are no more mistakes. Maybe everything is going to be alright now."
