Coufal thanks the fans

Vladimír Coufal thanked the fans after giving us one of the nights of our lives on Thursday. The Czech Republic right back made it clear  the squad was thrilled with a great win  knowing just how important that particular confrontation is to us! And after goals from Jarrod Bowen and James Ward-Prowse hit the back of the net stunned the Spurs fans he wants more of the same on a regular basis.

The victory which extended the Hammers’ unbeaten record to a sixth game and kept them within touching distance of the Premier League’s top five. We may not have been convincing throughout the run  but six wins on the trot is a big achievement and it kept us within touching distance of the top five of course.  Coufal is keen to keep his foot on the pedal and help propel his team further forward.

Talking to www.whufc he said: “It was one of the most important games for the fans and also we are really happy we could please them with this victory. It’s really good that we could thank them for their support like this. If we can win at Fulham too it would be something amazing. It’s a tough game and we play again [quickly] so we will recover well and prepare for the game.

Coufal thanks the fans

“We knew it would be a game like it was this probably with a lot of them on the ball in a high position, and we would have to be compact, stick together and cover each other.

“We did an unbelievable job together defensively and we survived. The first 15, 20 minutes was like hell almost, to be honest, but we survived. We conceded just one goal – from a corner kick, which was not good enough from us – but in the second half we took our chances.

“We scored two goals and I think they didn’t create a lot of chances in the second half. I’m not saying we controlled the game, but I think we were very solid, compact and difficult to play though. We played our game to full effect.”
