Soucek wins another top award

Hammer Tomas Soucek has won the Golden Ball of the Czech Republic award.

Taking to social media the year-old said ‘Thank you all for your support! I really appreciate it. I’m looking forward for the new season’

The Golden Ball (CzechZlatý míč) is awarded in the Czech Republic by a poll of Czech sports journalists from the Club of Sports Journalists (Klub sportovních novinářů, KSN). Eligible are Czech players in the Czech Republic and abroad. 

Petr Cech has won it a total twelve times in the last fifteen years while playing for Chelsea and Arsenal.

The West Ham United midfielder was been named 2019 Czech Footballer of the Year in March this year.

Last month West Ham confirmed the permanent arrival of Tomáš Souček from Slavia Prague on a four-year contract.

The Hammers paid £19m (21 million euros) in total which included a 4.5 million Euro (£3.75m) loan fee.

That makes the permanent transfer fee around 16.5m Euros of £15m.

  1. Great news and well deserved, very high quality player, hopefully we can sign some more Czech players of a similar level.

    • Agree was fan before we signed him but slotted in so well & proper footballer. Interested in his former teammate at RB could be a shrewd signing. And there is some young Czech talent

  2. Souchek and Bowen absolutely the best signings West Ham have made for years. Saved us from relegation in my opinion. Also, in my opinion, if we’d had Souchek and Bowen since the start of the season we’d have finished closer to the top of the league than the bottom. What is great about both signings is that they are out and out team players, attacking yet defensive and unselfish at the same time which is a balance not easy to achieve but they both manage to do it.
    Bodes well for the future, because I feel Moyes isn’t going to buy the lazy type of player we’ve who isn’t a team player who contributes both attacking and defensively to the team.
