Flocking to Twitter, many West Ham United fans have erupted in response to an official announcement by the club involving Tomas Soucek.
The Czech Republic star, signed by the Irons last summer, has gone on to become a revelation at the London Stadium and real snip at just £19.1 million.
Soucek, starting every single Premier League game over his debut season with West Ham, averaged a mighty 6.2 aerial duels won per 90 in the middle of the park – eclipsing all of his teammates (WhoScored).
He also finished the campaign as manager David Moyes’ joint-top goal scorer in the league with ten goals, all while contributing at other end of the pitch.
The 26-year-old made the joint-most tackles per 90 (2.1) out of any West Ham player over 2020/2021, sharing the most impressive numbers with compatriot Vladimir Coufal.
As a result, West Ham have now announced Soucek as the coveted Hammer of the Year award winner for an outstanding first campaign in England.
Flocking to this official update, it’s safe to say supporters believe he is deserving of the honour.
