Coufal drops bizarre “hopefully” hint over future

Vlad Coufal has sent a rather bizarre end-of-season message to West Ham fans, claiming that he will “hopefully” see them next season.

The Czech Republic international has endured something of a difficult season under manager David Moyes.

He made 25 starts in the Premier League and has been much more of a rotation option, with the likes of Ben Johnson and Ryan Fredericks both being given minutes by Moyes.

Coufal was clearly disappointed with the 3-1 loss to Brighton on Sunday, which meant that the Hammers lost out on a Europa League finish and finished seventh.

He posted on Twitter after the game, claiming that he will “hopefully” be back next season.

Writing on the social media site, he said: “Last game of the season, not happy with result today, still a lot of work ahead us. Hopefully see you next season.”

It’s a really odd way to sign off, although it may have been a case of things being lost somewhat in translation.

However, this could also be seen as something of a hint that he might well not be around for the start of the 2022/23 season.

  1. I’m pretty sure he meant he hopes to see the supporters next year at the games.

  2. Coufal is not a natural English speaker: so don’t read too much into every word he speaks. He may well have used “hopefully” because he thinks that is the word to use, when in reality it is not quite what he exactly meant to say.
