Kral speaks out on his West Ham disaster

Alex Kral has spoken for the first time about his West Ham experience after being frozen out of the first team reckoning last season while on loan.

Kral only managed  255 minutes of action in the campaign and only 60 seconds of those came in the Premier League whilst a total of  21 West Ham players played more minutes than him (Transfermarkt).

It was all incredibly difficult to understand and – remaining entirely professional in his comments – the player refuses to blame anyone for the scenario,

However, it remains difficult to understand just how underused he should have been in a season when Tomas Soucek was clearly below his best and Mark Noble being chosen ahead of him on various occasions.

However, he remains at a loss to explain being snubbed so almost completely saying: “I didn’t get a clear answer from the coach (over my lack of opportunities at West Ham),” he told WAZ.

“Mentally, the time in London was difficult because I didn’t get a chance to show myself.

“Despite this, I always behaved professionally and never caused a bad mood.

“Only in the car after training could I let my emotions out.”

One comment on “Kral speaks out on his West Ham disaster

  1. After two seasons we are learning more about Moyes as a person and much of it echoes what has come out of Everton with regards to man management, in that he likes a very small squad of mainly older professionals and that if he likes you all is fine, but otherwise he can be distant to the point of iciness. I am beginning to understand the school of thought which maintains that his strengths will take a team so far but his weaknesses will ensure that it will not reach the next level. Let’s hope that opinion is wrong but I think this season will prove to be a watershed for Moyes and West Ham.
