Sead drops hint to Slav


HakSwindon726West Ham new boy  Sead Haksabanovic has his eyes on a first team place ….and as soon as possible.

The 3 million euros signing was in great form during his first appearance against Swindon Town in the Checkatrade Trophy and said: “It felt good to be on the pitch in a West Ham shirt for the first time. The players were taking care of me well, and of course it felt good to win the first game.”

Speaking to the official site he said: “It was good to play against a senior team for my first game as well, because I have been playing against senior teams in Sweden. It’s a good experience to get in your first game.

“It was a tough match but we attacked well and I think we deserved to win the match.

“We took the lead three times and it was so important to keep attacking after the other team equalised. We were talking about winning the game before and we really felt that we could do it.”

After the encouraging display, the Montenegro international confirmed his sights have already been set on a spot in Slaven Bilic’s first team setup.

“I’m just focused on playing well for whatever team I am asked at the moment but yes, a first team spot is of course what I am hoping to achieve and hopefully that will come soon,” he continued.

    could this guy be the best and cheapest signing we did this year ?

      Time will tell that one iron, he got a good write up the other night! His work rate and running off the ball was excellent by all accounts and smashed one against the bar! 8 rating .

    Not if we pick up Bony for £13 million instead of Swansea ?

  • JRS says:

    Looks good and looks a lot older than 18 but not what we need in Midfield immediately but thinkna good game in cups run and for future.
    Think we need a CF for the academy now with Slav not likely to get another CF and Toni should be moved up for Squad and was supposed to be the case. But 5 defenders.
    Think George Hirst at 6’3 and 18 from Sheffield Wednesday would be great signing for around £2m scored 7 goals in 10 apps for U20s and did well for U17s and U16s. We need to add a CF RB and DCM to academy.
