Rice & Dawson | West Ham players in Europa League Team of the Season for 2021-22

West Ham captain Declan Rice and defender Craig Dawson have both received their awards for featuring in the Europa League Team of the Year for 21/22. WHUFC reached the semifinals of the tournament before losing to eventual winners Eintracht Frankfurt.

There are four Frankfurt players in the XI (Trapp, Hinteregger, Kostic, Borre), three Rangers players (Bassey, Tavernier, Kent) and two each from West Ham and Leipzig (Nkunku, Laimer). Leipzig, like the Hammers, were losing semi-finalists.

It’s also telling that West Ham don’t have a forward representative in this squad- it was a position in which the club needed reinforcements last January ahead of the knockout stages of the UEL, but that didn’t happen, which meant injury-prone Antonio had to shoulder a massive workload
