West Ham ace Andriy Yarmolenko has admitted that he is much happier in the Premier League than he was in the Bundesliga with Borussia Dortmund, when speaking exclusively to Sport.ua.

The 29-year-old joined the Hammers from Dortmund in the summer of 2018, for a fee believed to be worth £17.5 million, according to the London Evening Standard.

Yarmolenko missed the majority of last season with a serious knee injury, however.

The Ukraine international has been eased back to full fitness this term, however. And he’s already opened his goalscoring account for West Ham, scoring against Norwich City last weekend.

He might just end up being a very important player for the Hammers this season. Especially with Michail Antonio having been ruled out for around four months with a hamstring injury.

 

Yarmolenko spoke exclusively to Sport.ua, and shared how much happier he is at West Ham than he was at Dortmund:

“I did not like a lot of things in Dortmund. If you compare with England, then there is a much better attitude to their players. In England, one hundred percent better. I like the British because we have a similar mentality in terms of humour, jokes.”

The 29-year-old, who earns £115,000 per week according to Spotrac, will be delighted to be back fit and involved with the West Ham first-team this season.

And if he remains fit, he will surely be a real asset for the Hammers, as they look to crack the top seven this term.
