Honest Coufal admits he’s just points happy

Vladimir Coufal is more than happy with a crowded fixture list.

The right back has been in brilliant form since his £5 million arrival at the club and is showing  himself to be one of the strongest and most energetic players in the club.

And he could hardly be happier with the results the team is getting right now despite the match against West Brom not being the best.

He wants us to be playing great football of course – which wasn’t the case against Sam Allardyce’s outfit – but what really matters is the three points.

And with the team on a roll right now his first excursion into Premier League football is clearly proving a joy for the summer signing.

With a game against Doncaster Rovers due on Saturday in the fourth round of the FA Cup, he is likely to take a break given we are away at Palace next Tuesday.

Speaking at https://www.whufc.com/news/articles/2021/january/21-january/vladimir-coufal-we-need-carry he said: “It’s another win, and like I said it would be before the game, it was a tough match on Tuesday,” 

“We expected this kind of game, and the most important thing is three points. We won and now we have four wins a row – that’s good for our confidence.

“It wasn’t the best performance from us, but the most important thing was three points.

“I like playing every three days – it’s good for every football player when we can play and it’s like a dream for everyone to be on the pitch in the Premier League.

“At this time of year Tomas and I were used, like he said, to too much potato salad with schnitzel or fried carp, but this is much better!”

Valdimir Coufal

Coufal provided the ball for Jarrod Bowen’s opening goal on Tuesday night, giving him a third assist of the season from right back, on the official record at least.

The tally could yet be higher, if those stats included his cross which Davinson Sanchez turned into his own net at Tottenham Hotspur in October, but he insisted the final result is all he is interested in.

“I count four assists because of the own goal at Tottenham, but no worries!” he smiled.

“It’s three official assists, but it doesn’t matter who assists or scores the goals, we are a team and the most important thing is the wins and three points.”
