Sakho: ‘Next Season I want to score 20’

sakho cross hammerDiafra Sakho has set his own personal target to score twenty goals next season.

Speaking to the official website the top Hammers goal scorer said ‘Before this season, I said to myself I would score 12 goals and I scored 12, so next season I want to score 20. If I play games, I will score.’

The Ligue 2 Player of the Year for 2013-14 scored 20 goals in his final season for Metz helping them win promotion to Ligue 1.

When Sakho signed for West Ham he set himself he originally set a goal target of 10.

“From the moment I arrived I set myself targets,” said Sakho. “Personally that was to get in the team, I knew that I was going to score goals.”

“The target is only 10 goals, I didn’t know how things were going to pan out, but it is still only 10. I’m the sort of person that once I’ve a target in mind, I stick to it, even when I know that perhaps I’m going to achieve it, I still have to get there. The moment I get to 10, I’ll set new targets, 15, 16,or 17 perhaps, but personally, for me, the target is 10.”

  1. Ok nice talk Diafra…now deliver the goods!

    • Errrr I think he has already proven he can deliver the goods. Has made Valencia look like a chump and only cost a fifth of the price. Very fast, powerful, and an eye for goal and has his head firmly with us , unlike Valencia, who is lightweight, easily brushed off the ball and only 4 from 30 games and has had his head turned in his first season. Quality! Get behind him!

    • Ole, ole, ole, ole… Sackho, Sackho!

  2. I believe in him, he loves West Ham and their fans. Sakho, Kouyate, Creswell, Adrian represent the firm foundation for building West Ham future. 😉

  3. Let’s hope you get the players to provide the service you are going to need,but the spirit is the correct one
    We need more money 2 Daves at least equal with Sunderland and they got there manager by giving him his budget

    • Know where you’re coming from Bubs, I remember Sully saying that we can’t carry any debt by the time we get to OS.
      In addition, they done their dough when we got relegated injecting 30 large.
      Rumour has it that some properly wedged Individual is lurking in the background ahead of our big move.
      Think we will be giving it large once we move in though, think we may surprise a few with our largesse then.

  4. As I ,ve said before many times he is the one from the word go!.,

  5. Love this guy,many of our other prima donnas would do well to take a leaf out of his mans book.
