To his credit, Manuel Pellegrini has done a tremendous job in identifying the team’s weaknesses and intervening to correct them. The arrival of Fabien Balbuena from Corinthians should augment the quality of our defence.

The talented Paraguayan defender was confirmed as an official West Ham player last week, and his arrival should strengthen a defence that was incredibly leaky last season – conceding a dreadful total of 68 goals in 38 league games.

Alongside the arrival of Diop, the pair will provide us with invaluable competition in defensive positions, which could be of exceeding benefit to the entirety of our defence.

Upon arriving at the London Stadium, Balbuena expressed his happiness at joining the club. The following quotes are from our official website.

“I’m really excited for this new challenge, and my target is to meet the demands of the Premier League.”

“Obviously to be at West Ham is an extra motivation, and I want to do my best to help the team.”

Here’s how West Ham supporters responded to his arrival on Twitter.
