West Ham Loanee Martin Samuelson scored another great goal for Peterborough yesterday in the FA Cup third round to help the Posh beat Preston 2-0 and go forward to the fourth round. It was the eighteen year old’s debut in the FA Cup but he scored from 25 yards on 7 minutes into the first half
Last week we spoke exclusively to Peterborough United Director of Football Barry Fry who welcomed the news that West Ham have allowed Martin Samuelsen to stay with the Posh until the end of the season and play in the FA Cup by declaring: “We’ll make him a £20 million player.”
Fry told MooreThanJustApodcast: “He’ll win us the League and if he stays another year we’ll turn him into a man on and off the pitch and send a £20 million player back to Upton Park! Every Posh player looks up to Martin. He’s a training ground genius.
“He will be knocked about and learn to mature at our level. It’s a better place to grow up and learn your trade than in under 21 football where nobody ever tackles.”
