West Ham star Jarrod Bowen reveals Danny Dyer is on his case every week

West Ham winger Jarrod Bowen has revealed that his girlfriend’s father, Danny Dyer has been on his case every week.
The Hammers will be in Europa Conference League action on Thursday night as they take on Dutch side AZ Alkmaar in the first leg of the semi-final.
David Moyes is looking to lead the Hammers to their first trophy since 1980.
When asked how he would feel about getting to the final and scoring the winner, Bowen said: “It's massive.
“I've only been here three years and I feel like a fan of this club so I know what it means to the fans. I want to give them that success as well.”
He added: “The missus' old man is obviously on at me every week but for everyone, the whole club, it's not been a great season but staying in the Premier League and bringing home a trophy for the fans would be a good end to a bad season.”
On the prospect of getting to the final, Hammers boss Moyes said: “We don’t hide away from it. I have always said I want to get to the final, but when you get to a semi-final you have another opponent that you have to respect.
“You have to be a good side to get to a semi-final. AZ are a good side and have beaten some good sides like Anderlecht and Lazio, and they played at Ajax at the weekend, so I don’t think them coming to us will be a big fear for them.
“Do I want to get to a final? One hundred per cent. We will do everything in our power to do so.”
If West Ham manage to get the better of AZ Alkmaar over the two legs, they will either take on Fiorentina or Basel.
