David Moyes goes viral with his ‘Dad dancing’ as his players and fans sing that Dani Dyer chant

David Moyes goes viral with his ‘Dad dancing’ as his players and fans sing that Dani Dyer chant among other songs after the cup final win.

West Ham’s players, staff and fans wildly celebrated their first major trophy for 33 years as Jarrod Bowen’s dramatic late goal helped the Hammers defeat Fiorentina in a tight Europa Conference League final at Prague.

There were emotional scenes on the pitch, in the stands and in various fanzones with supporters celebrated this historic moment.

After the trophy lifting, many more joyful scenes were captured on camera. There were many renditions of the phrase “Bowen is on fire and he is sha**ing Dani Dyer”.

David Moyes, the manager who ran down the touchline and embraced the win with his 87 year old father. Moyes also gave his dad his medal before they posed for photos.

Moyes shared a touching embrace with Mark Noble, now a sporting director at the club, while Declan Rice posted a photo of himself with the trophy, his medal and the trophy between his teeth on the pitch, with speculation continuing on if he has played the last match for the club due to Arsenal’s interest.

Fans sang “champions Europe, we know who we are” in addition to the “Bowens on Fire” chant as they celebrated being the only London team to win a trophy during this season.

The squad was greeted at their hotel by jubilant supporters who chanted and danced along to the song “Bowen is on fire” again, while goalkeeper Alphonse Areola held an audio speaker above his head. Even Moyes was seen performing some more ‘dad dancing’.

In the hotel, more clips of players dancing to the iconic tune of Gala’s dance classic “Freed from Desire” have been released.

Declan Rice, the Conference League winner’s medal was around his neck as the players made their way to the reception.

Fans roared with approval as the England international performed some questionable moves. He then joined his teammates to dance more in the lobby of the hotel.

The group sang the X-rated song “Bowen’s On Fire” with Rice, Mark Noble, and Lukasz Fabiasski joining in on the fun.

Rice sang the chorus in front of the camera with the fans who were ecstatic about the West Ham victory.

After the match, players and staff celebrated the victory of the Hammers over Fiorentina with a raucous celebration.

Speaking after the game, a delighted Moyes said: “When I think of the progress West Ham have made in the last three years, sixth, seventh, a European semi-final and now a European trophy, if I had said that would happen three years ago, you would have said ‘he’s lost his marbles.'”

“I am really fortunate at this club. They have been incredibly supportive, when it could have been different.”

He added: “This is fantastic. “I’ve had a long career in football and you don’t get many moments like this but thankfully tonight we’ve got the result we’ve wanted. 

“My Dad was here. I’ve just had a picture with him on the pitch and it was great. He’s still going strong and he wanted to come to the game. It’s a great moment to have your family at the game for. These moments, as a manager, they don’t come around too often.

“It means just as much to my dad as it does to me. The family, from when you’re a young boy, they support you in football. You don’t always get good moments in football but today is a great moment for us.

“West Ham is a brilliant Club in the east end of London who do a lot of work in the community. It’s a big family Club and I think it’s getting better and stronger.

“We’ve got a massive stadium that we’ve filled all season and tonight is another step on the road towards continued progress.

I think this would be a really good moment to mention the Gold family, who sadly can’t be here. We lost David and unfortunately we lost Jacqueline as well, so I think it’s really important we remember David Gold because it would have been very special for him.”

Jarrod Bowen said: “I obviously dreamed of scoring but to score the winner in the last minute…you always say you want to score a last-minute winner!

“To do it in front of these fans, I thought I was going to cry. I’m just so, so happy. I can’t put it into words. 

“We had a dream, and we didn’t have the best season, but to do what we’ve done tonight for these fans…we see all the fans and, to give them this moment, I’m over the moon.

“I’ve never had a feeling like this in my entire life. I said leading up to this that this was the biggest game in my entire career and the emotion.

“I thought it was going to go to extra time. But there was time for one more chance and I’m just so happy. We won it for everyone. It means too much. 

“In my position, you make that run ten times and you might get it once but the one time you get it you’ve got to put it away. 

“I was confident and then I’ve seen it go in and then I just didn’t know what to do.

“I’m now thinking about the party tonight. I want to celebrate with my teammates, the fans, the staff. My dad and my brother and my two mates are in the front row too. It’s special.”
