Tomas Soucek raved about one of his ‘incredible’ West Ham teammates when speaking to WHUFC.com.
The Hammers have made a superb start to their 2021/22 Premier League and Europa League campaigns.
West Ham are currently sitting inside the top seven in the league and we are top of our Europa League group having won three out of three so far.
Soucek has played a key role for the Hammers this season. The goals haven’t flowed consistently for the Czech Republic international just yet.
They will surely come for the 26-year-old though. It’s just a matter of time. It’s not all about big Tom though. It is a team game and West Ham arguably have the most tightly knit group in the Premier League.
Soucek thinks one of his teammates have played a key role in the Hammers’ success so far this season.
Tomas Soucek says 24-year-old West Ham ace does incredible things
The former Slavia Prague ace is a huge fan of Jarrod Bowen.
The 24-year-old West Ham attacker has two goals and three assists to his name in 12 games in all competitions so far this season. His all around play has been worthy of so much more than that, however.
Soucek told WHUFC.com just how important Bowen is to David Moyes’s side:
“Jarrod is an important player for us. He plays a lot and does incredible things. I’m happy that he scored on Thursday because it’s important for his confidence. We need these kind of players, good in one-against-ones, who can create chances and he’s very important for our team.”
If Bowen starts racking up the goals and assists on a more consistent basis, a call-up to the England squad surely beckons.
He was more than deserving of a call-up last month, but Gareth Southgate clearly favours names and reputations rather than players currently in form.
That’s a debate for another day though.
What’s most important is for Bowen to perform for West Ham.
And after the 24-year-old’s goal in the Europa League in midweek, he should be flying high on confidence for tomorrow’s game against Tottenham at the London Stadium.
