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 (Czech: Zlatý 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.
