ExWHUemployee claimed that the staff at West Ham have told him what a friendly person Sebastien Haller is.

The 26-year-old has flattered to deceive since joining the Hammers for £45 million from Eintracht Frankfurt in the summer of 2019.

Sebastien Haller is an incredibly divisive figure at the London Stadium.

Some fans want him gone whilst others worship the ground he walks on. In truth, we all need to meet somewhere in the middle.

Haller clearly has incredible talent. He proved that last night with his wonder-goal against Crystal Palace. The Ivory Coast international possesses superb technical ability.

The 26-year-old does have to do more though. He needs to make more of a nuisance of himself to opposing defenders. Hopefully the penny has dropped and he will add that to his game.

Some fans say the 26-year-old is useless, but he’s far from it.

One of the gripes the those fans have with Haller is his stoic demeanour on the pitch. That’s a little harsh, however. The striker has been the same throughout his entire career everywhere he has played.

ExWHUemployee suggested that Sebastien Haller is a popular player behind the scenes at West Ham too:

Hopefully last night’s goal will give Haller the confidence he needs to really kick on now.

As Moyes said last night, the Ivorian needs to score tap ins as well as wonder goals.

If we are to finish inside the top six this season, we need Sebastien Haller to score at least 15 Premier League goals this season. He’s certainly capable.

Whether the 26-year-old will maintain his place in the starting XI when Michail Antonio returns from injury, however, remains to be seen.
