German news outlet Bild delivered a disastrous assessment of West Ham’s second-leg display in their Europa League exit against Eintracht Frankfurt.
The Hammers entered Thursday already on the back foot after losing 2-1 at the London Stadium last week.
Their fortunes were all but sealed half an hour into the second leg when Aaron Cresswell was sent off for denying a scoring opportunity before Rafael Bollé scored the only goal of the game. .
Germany’s Outlet Bild bite into West Ham after Europa League semi-final exit
Aaron Cresswell and David Moyes received red cards and received lowest ratings
Bild’s ratings use the German school rating system, with 1 being the highest rating a player is considered very good and 6 the lowest being considered unsatisfactory.
As a result, the German newspaper Bild eclipsed the Hammers in their ratings of the match, with both Cresswell and David Moyes giving the worst ratings they could give.
Bild uses the German school grading system. 1 is the highest rating, meaning very good, and 6 is the lowest, poor rating.
After Cresswell and Moyes were sent off, it probably came as no surprise that they were given six points.
Cresswell left the team and played 71 minutes with 10 players. Meanwhile, Moyes was given his orders to march from the touchline after kicking the ball at Frankfurt’s ballboy.
3 West Ham players considered decent but lacking, 5 lacking
Michael Antonio and Alphonse Areola received the highest ratings because they were considered average.
All Eintracht Frankfurt players received the two best ratings Bild can offer
One player was deemed to have performed well and things were not so good for the rest of the West Ham team in terms of the ratings they received.
Thomas Suchek, Kurt Zuma, Manuel Lanzini, Pablo Fornals and Jarrod Bowen were considered shortfalls with a rating of 5.
Captains Declan Rice, Craig Dawson and Vladimir Kfar performed slightly better with 4.
The West Ham team’s highest-rated players were goalkeepers Alphonse Areola and Michael Antonio, both of whom were considered average, thus scoring a 3.
In contrast, they were very complementary to the hosts who had reached the final of Europe for the first time in 40 years as they face Rangers in Seville.

Moyes was later given a red card for kicking the ball at Eintracht Frankfurt’s ball boy
French centre-back Evan Nudicka was the only player to receive the highest possible rating of 1 and was named Man of the Match.
The rest of the Frankfurt team were all 2’s and Bild judged them to be a good performer.
After the game, Moyes said, “I kicked the ball back at the ball boy. I’m sorry, he threw it back to me very softly. Moyes later joked, ‘For me the volley worked out.’ He repeated that he was sorry that he had lost his temper.
“I’m just disappointed,” he added. “We played against a better team than Frankfurt. At the London stadium we probably lost in the first 30 seconds and have been chasing ever since. I don’t know if I enjoyed the refereeing, but I’m going to be in the competition. It was fun.
