West Ham’s Martin Samuelson has given his first interview since extending his stay at Peterborough.
Last week the 18 year-old Hammers weaved his way past four defenders before powering a left-footed shot into the corner of the net.
Speaking to the official Posh website, Samuelsen said: “I spend a lot of time practising my skills. I have always liked going past players and at the age of seven I went to a coaching soccer school, bought a skills dvd, wrote down all the skills and started to practice them on the training pitch.”
“I even added some of my own and I spend more time then most on the training pitch.”
“To score a goal like I did (at Sheffield) was a great feeling. It’s certainly the best goal I have scored in a long time.”
“I was going to shoot earlier than I did, but I saw two defenders coming out to block so I checked and a gap opened up for me.”
“To hear the noise of our fans after I scored was a great experience and one I hope to repeat.”
“I’m learning a new style of play at Peterborough, Every manager teaches a player new things and I am enjoying playing for Graham (Westley).”
“I hope to be involved in the FA Cup game this Saturday (January 9) as I used to watch the competition on the television in Norway. Maybe Peterborough can be one of the small teams who do well in the FA Cup this season.”
