David Moyes was really impressed by West Ham midfielder Mark Noble in the win away at Rapid Vienna on Thursday.

The 34-year-old was selected to start the game and slammed in a penalty in the first half to make it 2-0 to the away side.

Noble has played a reduced role for the Irons so far this season, but to put it into context, that was his 536th game and his 61st goal.

He is a true West Ham legend, and Moyes was full of praise for him.

Speaking in his post-match press conference [Football.London], he said: “He has made such a contribution to West Ham, and it is his final year at West Ham. He has scored two penalties and is a really valuable member of the team, and I always thought he would be needed with all the extra games.”

Huge praise from the gaffer.

Noble might not be first-choice anymore, but he is still a vital part of this team, and if anyone deserves success after all these years, then it is him.

He has been with the Irons through the tough times, and now as he approaches the end of his playing career, he can enjoy the good times.

His penalty was superbly dispatched, and he lasted the full match, which was great to see.

Therefore, it is lovely to see Moyes praise someone who means so much to the Hammers and who will continue to give his all until the end.

How good would it be if the Hammers have managed to win a trophy at the end of the campaign and Noble ends his playing career by lifting some silverware?

Certainly, given his dedication to the Irons, he would deserve it, so let us all hope they can make it happen.
