Tony Cottee raved about West Ham ace Robert Snodgrass, when speaking exclusively to Claret and Hugh.

The 32-year-old has barely featured for the Hammers this season, but he returned to the starting line-up for last weekend’s clash with Sheffield United.

And the Scot really impressed.

Snodgrass scored West Ham’s goal against the Blades, and put in a fantastic all-round display.

The former Hull City man, who earns £40,000 per week according to Spotrac, made a big statement to Manuel Pellegrini.

 

Hammers fans love the 32-year-old winger, and he is clearly a consummate pro.

And Cottee told Claret and Hugh how Snodgrass must start for West Ham against Newcastle on Saturday:

“I’d also play Snoddy who has shown himself to be a fantastic pro. His return at the weekend was brilliant. This guy is an ultimate professional and his set pieces and corners can be absolutely crucial. I’d have played him at Goodison in a game that was crying out for some midfield bite and after his game against Sheffield United he has all but made himself impossible to be left out at the weekend.”

Snodgrass undoubtedly gives West Ham something different from the wide right position. He possesses a wicked delivery, and Sebastien Haller should thrive off of the service provided by the Scot.

Despite his advancing years, the winger is still in great shape physically, and he could very well prove to be a really important player for the Hammers this season.
