Former Hammer Ashley Fletcher says he has improved as a player since leaving West Ham in the Summer.
Speaking to Middlesborough official club website he said
“It’s always good as a young player to go out and get league experience, the success I had there was fantastic and had a big impact on my career so far.”
“It’s everything I thought it would be, there’s an unbelievable spirit here, as we’ve shown in games coming back from losing positions. I think that’s testament to the lads that we have a strong dressing room.”
“For me it was all about coming and playing games. I think I’ve improved as a player and hopefully I can get a few more – and some more goals as well.”
Middlesbrough signed the former West Ham United striker Ashley Fletcher on a four-year deal paying the Hammers £6.5m in a transfer fee.
I really hope we do not regret the decision to let Fletcher go. Bilic still hasn’t worked out how to deal with forwards other than playing AC whenever he gets the chance.
Ashley was worth persevering with and given that he only got minutes normally at the end of losing games, he was not given a decent chance to show what he could do.
I wish him every success
