West Ham midfielder Alex Kral has sent a message to David Moyes that he is ready for action by posting a picture from training.
Kral joined West Ham on a season-long loan from Russian club Spartak Moscow last summer.
But the Czech midfielder has barely had a kick for West Ham since.
Kral has made just six appearances for West Ham in all competitions this season, including as a substitute.
That’s despite the Hammers fighting on four fronts with a shallow squad.
The curly-haired midfielder has only started three games all season for the Hammers in all competitions.
It is perhaps not a huge surprise given West Ham duo Declan Rice and Tomas Soucek are guaranteed starters.
But West Ham fans had expected to see more of the Czech Republic international given the club’s progress across all competitions this term.
Particularly after an impressive display in a 1-0 Carabao Cup win over Manchester United away at Old Trafford.
Kral has become something of a forgotten man at West Ham.
He may yet have a role to play during the run in, though. Rice missed West Ham’s defeat to Liverpool through illness and it is hoped he will be ok to play against Sevilla on Thursday night.
West Ham midfielder Alex Kral sends message to David Moyes with post from training
West Ham have a busy schedule with important games on the horizon.
And West Ham midfielder Kral has sent a message to Moyes that he is fit and ready if needed with a post from training.
The Twitter post shows Kral pushing a weighted sled during some indoor strength and speed training at West Ham’s Rush Green base.
Kral’s message is accompanied by on fire and muscle flex emojis.
Kral revealed to iSPORT back in October that Moyes wanted him to up his physicality to cope with the power and speed of the English game.
“The coach and I realise that I gradually have to get used to the pace and style of play we want to play,” Kral told iSPORT.
“I need to get used to training. (The sessions) are more intense. It’s something new, I just need to adapt. It’s a move up to the next level, I need to work harder and harder.”
Judging by the picture, Kral certainly looks like he is putting the work in.
Sled pushes work both upper and lower body muscles and more specifically engages quadriceps and glutes.
He will be in the squad for the Europa League last 16 first leg away to Sevilla on Thursday night and likely on the bench.
