Hammers loan signing dubbed a “perfect professional”

Tomas Soucek has been described as a perfect professional.

Earlier we reported that his future as a Hammer was no almost certainly in the hands of Uefa who are expected to decide how the season ends at their meeting this week.

But in the meantime, the defensive midfielder – currently on loan to the Hammers with a clause claiming that he will remain at the club if we stay in the Premier League – is putting himself through a daily training regime which has been applauded by backroom staff.

After we ran our story on his future we were contacted and told: “You have described it exactly as it is and the guy is a perfect professional. He’s  out running every day in the Park until the training ground opens.”

The club paid an initial 4,5m  and a further 16 million euros is due should the deal become permanent.

  1. So excited by the potential Soucek posses, and what it can do for the squad.

    Now we need to sign a pair of RB, get in a strike partner for Haller and another holding midfielder to backup Rice and I think we’re solid. The midfield definitely needs shoring up, if anything happened to Rice we would be screwed.

    Selling Masuaku is a given.


  2. Looks an absolute snip at that price. Hopefully we will be able to sign him permanently. If his team mates take a leaf out of his book whatever happens we will be ok. Imho the club should hire a personal trainer for every player that records them in training every day and ensures they are as fit as possible when football returns. Judging by every recent preseason our players have not been at that level.

    Which asks the question of how well do they keep themselves in condition when away from the training ground ?

  3. Agree Soucek would be ideal signing & that first team fitness below PL standard par.

    Assuming PL cessation inevitable given coronovirus peak estimated to be 10 -14 weeks ahead we should sell Masuaku, Noble, Snodgrass & allow Zabaletta to retire & significantly strengthen squad for next season.

  4. To NOT be able to sign him now, would be a REAL gutting prospect. He’s certainly a player we’ve been looking for, for years!
