West Ham United ace Aaron Cresswell is officially the best left-back in the whole of Europe, if current form is anything to go by.
The 32-year-old joined the Hammers from Ipswich Town in the summer of 2014 for around £4 million (Mirror).
Cresswell is a key figure at the London Stadium and is one of David Moyes’s most trusted on-field lieutenants.
He is a hugely popular player at the London Stadium amongst the fans and players alike.
In all fairness to Cress though, he has turned things around massively over the past six weeks or so.
And his fine form has been recognised outside of the London Stadium…
Aaron Cresswell officially the best left-back in Europe
The 32-year-old West Ham star has been a key player for David Moyes recently.
The former Ipswich Town man seems to have drastically improved upon his defensive positioning, and he just isn’t getting caught out as much as he used to.
Cresswell has always been a useful attacking asset, what with his wand of a left foot.
He has been a liability for us defensively over the past year though…up until the last month or so!
Sofascore have recognised Aaron Cresswell as officially the best left-back in Europe.
The 32-year-old made the best XI selected from the top five leagues in Europe, judged on average ratings out of 10 during the month of October:
That’s great to see, and long may it continue.
Cresswell will be 33 next month, so a downturn is inevitable. But the fact that he has been so flawless in recent weeks speaks volumes of him as a player and a man.
The 32-year-old is a real leader at the London Stadium as well, so keeping him around after he hangs up his boots will be pivotal.
It seems as though that won’t be for quite some time yet though…
Aaron Cresswell is officially the best left-back in Europe over the past month…let that sink in!
