Andriy Yarmolenko admission must make for exciting reading for West Ham fans

Andriy Yarmolenko says that West Ham want to entertain fans with the way they play.

The Hammers are going well at the moment having finally found their feet under Manuel Pellegrini.

It was a tricky start to the season as the club navigated its way through a transition period, but results have picked up in recent weeks.

After losing the first four games, the Hammers recorded their first win against Everton, drew with Chelsea, thumped Macclesfield Town 8-0 in the Carabao Cup and then beat Manchester United.

One man who has certainly played his part in the revival is Yarmolenko, who opened his account against the Toffees.

The Ukrainian winger has been eased in by Pellegrini following his £17.5 million move from Borussia Dortmund in the summer.

 

He has given an interview via the club’s official website and in it, revealed what he and his teammates wish to achieve this season.

West Ham fans should be excited about this mentality

As well as getting results, Yarmolenko admitted that he and his teammates wish to bring the entertainment factor to the London Stadium.

The brand of football, like recent results, has also improved greatly under Pellegrin. Fans should be happy to hear that this is the new mindset.

Yarmolenko said: “Obviously, everyone wants to set the highest possible targets for themselves but, as we say in Ukraine, we don’t want to be running ahead of the train!

“We want to play good football that both the fans and the players will enjoy. If we do that, then we will get the place we deserve at the end of the season.”

Can they actually be the entertainers Yarmolenko says they’ll be?

There’s a good chance they can be.

The Irons made some excellent signings this summer after spending over £100 million.

New creative recruits like Yarmolenko, Felipe Anderson and existing star Marko Arnautovic can definitely bring the entertainment factor with their quality.

There’s also Manuel Lanzini to come back next year.

And above all, Pellegrini certainly knows how to excite with his brand of attacking football.
