Vladimir Coufal praised teammate Alex Kral after his countryman made his debut for West Ham last night against Manchester United.
The 23-year-old midfielder joined the Hammers on loan from Spartak Moscow on transfer deadline day.
West Ham have an option to bring him to the London Stadium permanently next summer for around £12 million plus a potential £5 million in add-ons (ExWHUemployee).
Kral had to wait until last night before making his first appearance for the Hammers though.
And debuts don’t come much harder than Manchester United at Old Trafford.
The Czech ace really impressed with his high energy levels, tenacious tackling and non-stop commitment to the cause.
Vladimir Coufal blown away by West Ham teammate
The 29-year-old joined the Hammers from Slavia Prague one year ago next month. And he has already established himself as a real fan favourite at the London Stadium.
It seems as though the West Ham fans could have another Czech player to worship soon, however.
Coufal was blown way by Kral’s ‘dream’ debut at Old Trafford last night:

The future looks really bright for Kral. Considering the fact that we had around 30% possession last night, he was never going to have much time to dwell on the ball in possession and make things happen.
He put in the hard yards and got his hands dirty. The Czech ace did not stop running and put everything on the line.
And that’s why we think Kral will be a real hit at West Ham.
