Jamie Carragher absolutely raved about West Ham United midfielder Tomas Soucek, when speaking on Sky Sports Monday Night Football last night (Monday March 8th, 19:08).
The Hammers signed the 26-year-old from Slavia Prague in the summer of 2020 for around £15 million (The Daily Mail).
And what an incredible signing he has turned out to be.
Soucek has 11 goals to his name in 40 Premier League games for West Ham (Transfermarkt).
The Czech Republic international has had a transcending impact at the London Stadium.
He has totally transformed us as a football club with his winning mentality and never say die attitude on the pitch.
Jamie Carragher hugely impressed by West Ham ace Tomas Soucek
The 26-year-old is massively admired in East London. It seems as though his fine displays for the Hammers this season have drawn attention from outside the club as well.
Jamie Carragher told Sky Sports last night how he believes there are no better box-to-box midfielders in the Premier League at this moment than Soucek:
“Talk about West Ham being the best in the league from set-pieces. Soucek is a massive part of that. I’ve spoken about him in the defensive area, and now the attacking area. When you talk about box-to-box midfielders, right now, there is no one better in the Premier League.”
That’s quite the claim from Jamie Carragher. He’s not wrong though!
Soucek has been superb since joining West Ham. He is such a popular player at the London Stadium. The Czech ace bleeds claret and blue.
We’re very lucky to have him. Let’s just hope that he remains in East London for the remainder of his career.
