Michail Antonio has rediscovered his best form for West Ham over the past few weeks.
West Ham United forward Michail Antonio endured a really difficult first half of the season, as many of his teammates did as well.
However, Antonio now seems to be back to somewhere near his best, with three goals in his last two games for the Hammers (Transfermarkt).
And Micky has made a bold statement about something he has up his sleeve for the Hammers fans…
Michail Antonio wants to score memorable goal for West Ham
During our 4-0 win over Bournemouth on Sunday afternoon, Pablo Fornals scored with a truly brilliant ‘scorpion kick’.
And Antonio has highlighted just how much he wants to replicate the Spaniard’s stunner against the Cherries, as quoted by WHUFC.com:
“It’s great to see everyone in and amongst the goals. But Pablo’s finish was instinctive. It’s just dropped to him, and he’s pulled off a nice little scorpion kick. I have always wanted to score a goal like that. Pablo did it against Bournemouth, but I am not ruling out an attempt from myself in the future!”
Without sounding like too much of a buzzkill, I would suggest that Antonio focuses more on just scoring goals in a conventional manner.
His tally of just four in 28 Premier League games this season really isn’t good enough for a so-called striker (Transfermarkt).
That said, he has clearly been working hard behind the scenes to get back to his best.
And there is nothing I would like more than to see Michail Antonio score a scorpion kick for West Ham. I won’t be holding my breath for that to happen though – it’s one of the most difficult skills in the game after all.
