Pablo Fornals lifts lid on the two reasons he loves playing for West Ham

West Ham United fan favourite Pablo Fornals has renewed confidence pumping through his veins.

The £24million summer signing struggled to adapt to English football initially.

But he emerged as one of West Ham’s best players over the winter period.

David Moyes left fans baffled when he froze Fornals out of the team on returning to the club in December.

Fornals full of fight

But the Spaniard has fought his way back into the Hammers side and has played a crucial role in excellent performances against Liverpool and Southampton.

Fornals has a goal and two assists since coming back into the West Ham side over the last game and a half.

And he looks set to start again at Arsenal on Saturday.

Now speaking to the club’s official website, Fornals revealed the two reasons he loves playing for West Ham; the fans and the team’s creative flair when confidence is high.

And the hard-working midfield playmaker is positive West Ham can get an important result at the Emirates.

“I’m feeling good and we want to be successful for our fans – I just want to continue playing well for them,” Fornals told

“It was fun to play in Saturday’s game.

“We are a great team when we are playing well and we can create a lot.

“We are in a good moment and I am absolutely convinced that we can get a result at Arsenal.”

Do that and West Ham will keep themselves out of the relegation zone going into a crucial home game against Wolves.
