West Ham defender Ogbonna welcomes Lanzini return

West Ham defender Angelo Ogbonna has welcomed the return of Manuel Lanzini.

In victory over Newcastle, Ogbonna was pleased for Lanzini after he successfully came through his first start of the campaign after recovering from a serious knee injury.

He told whufc.com: “Players like Manu, like Nasri, like Snodgrass, we need that kind of player when you're struggling maybe and you need to keep the ball. You need that quality to keep the rhythm of the team and I'm really happy for Manu because he had a bad injury and has come back.

“He is a humble person and everyone expected that reaction from him because he is a good talent.'
