Englishman Jarrod Bowen faces the anger of West Ham United massive supporter and father-in-law-to-be Danny Dyer if he doesn’t win the UEFA Europa Conference League.
West Ham are on the verge of reaching a final of a European competition since 1976 and they battle Dutch side AZ Alkmaar on Thursday night.
The first leg of the UEFA Europa Conference League Semi-final encounter would go down at the London Stadium.
Jarrod Bowen has played his part in leading David Moyes’ side to this Semi-finals with five goals in the tournament so far.
But there is additional pressure on the 26-year-old to make aspirations come to pass by putting an end to the club’s 43-year wait for a silverware.
Bowen is anticipating twin girls this summer with partner Dani Dyer, whose father is Television legend and big time fan of West Ham United.
As West Ham United gear up for their first leg meeting with AZ Alkmaar, the Englishman smiled: “The missus’ old man is obviously on me every week.
“I’ve only been here three years but I feel a massive part of this club. I feel like a fan almost, as well.
“I know how much it means to the fans and I’m one of them who wants to give them that success.
“There is no pressure on me in that respect, there is just excitement. I want to do it. I want to score the winning goal.
“Bringing the trophy home for the fans would be a good end to a bad season.”
Jarrod Bowen has made four appearances for the Three Lions Of England and he has scored 11 goals across all competitions thus far.
West Ham United were victorious over Manchester United last Sunday and they would certainly thank Manchester United’s David De Gea for his role in the victory.
The hammers sit 15th on the English Premier League table, 7 points above the relegation zone and 3 points away from the 40 points threshold that most times guarantees safety in the English top-flight.
The 26-year-old who has kicked into form at the right time further said: “I don’t want to put too much pressure on myself.
“Of course, I’ll be critical, but I won’t let it affect me too much. I’ll keep playing my game.
“I’m just a boy with a dream and I’m living that dream.
“Sometimes I’ll look back and think where I am, but I always demand more of myself.”
