Many West Ham fans have been raving about former striker Diafra Sakho after the club posted a video of a great goal the forward scored against Liverpool.
The fans didn’t just enjoy a great finish that day, but also a wonderful victory as the Hammers managed to beat the Reds 3-1, via Premier League.
The Senegal international, per Transfermarkt, received the ball from Mark Noble on the right wing and delicately dinked the it into the left corner of the goal, confusing Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet and causing Upton Park to erupt, per West Ham.
Do you wish Sakho stayed at the club for longer?
Other goals for the Irons came from Winston Reid and Morgan Amalfitano and gave the Hammers a great fixture to remember, via Premier League.
Sakho had a very decent goalscoring record in East London, scoring 24 goals in 71 games for the side, per Transfermarkt, and many have been reminiscing over his time at the club, with one saying, ‘One of my favourite strikers ever’.
Here is what fans had to say following the clip:

The Sakho and Valencia partnership was actually better than several people made out. The season they played up front together they were a solid partnership and they always seemed to play well when playing together.
