Soucek’s former boss tips him for a move

Tomas Soucek – recently linked to a move to Manchester United – has been told by  his former manager Dusan Uhrin Jr it wouldn’t be a shock to him to see the Soucek move on to a big club soon, when speaking to the BBC.

The 25-year old joined the Hammers on loan from Slavia Prague in January 2020. His move to the London Stadium was then made permanent for around £15 million in the summer (Daily Mail).

Excluding penalties, he is the highest scoring midfielder, scoring 11 goals in 39 games, this season alone he has 8 goals to his name. (Transfermarkt)

His former boss had some words to say about him: “He is constantly improving, so why not? Who scores eight goals from his position? I wouldn’t expect a transfer to Bayern, but rather a team in England.”

ClaretandHugh says: First things first. Tomas is contracted to the Irons until June 2024 and is NOT a player we have any intention of selling. It’s obviously unhelpful when former managers come out with such remarks but I guess in a football transfer crazy world it seems that even those who have no need or reason to do so get involved. West Ham have made it clear consistently that Declan was going nowhere and he hasn’t. The same will be true of Tomas Soucek. People can do and say what they like but it doesn’t mean anybody – least of all Tomas – is on his way anywhere.

  1. Like soucek would Like to move from London to Manchester eh that’s a backward step on it’s own! Then his already said his settled at west ham and family like it in London. Maybe this coach is like the leeches we have in agents who do zero except stir up problems and get a nice earner themselves . By the way how’s that right back young lad getting on at Watford that agent thought was a good move ? What’s his name now as his well forgotten with coufal eh

  2. As Xande Silva might say – naive to think everyone has my best interests at heart.
    I think you’re right Josh. Soucek is happy with life at West Ham and will be with us for a long time. He’ll enjoy his time here and we will enjoy and appreciate him. Always someone else who think that they know better and would like to see him and 50 others in their fantasy team. Tomos, it’s up to you – be happy young man.

  3. Why would soucek join Manchester United ? They have no need for him unless Pogba goes our way then soucek can join Manchester United! However with lingard in the westham team the results should be easier! With the dream of European football being made popular in London surely westham should be able to play in the europa or champions league! This is a good idea for pogba to replace soucek!

  4. Tomas’ former Manager is obviously proud of his performances and achievements since moving to us, and such comments reflect that in a positive way !
    Sounds like Media have got their teeth into this with the obvious speculative agenda, nothing more and nothing less.

  5. Don’t kid yourselves, happy as he may be and as well as he and the team are playing, if one of the top clubs comes calling offering European football and big money he’d go.

  6. Totally agree with you, Len. If we’re not competing in the Champions League within the next couple of years, which is highly likely, then if a big team comes knocking he’ll go, just like every other player, and rightly so (if he’s ambitious). Let’s just hope he helps take us to the promised land!

    • Every other player Saul? Trevor Booking, Matt LeTissier, Alan Shearer, Ian Rush, David Unsworth to name but a few. Depends on what Soucek’s ambitions are. Not always about what other people think his future should be. If he does want to go – so be it. In the meantime we’ll enjoy what he does for us.
