Manuel Pellegrini is working his magic on West Ham winger Robert Snodgrass

West Ham originally signed Robert Snodgrass for £10.2million (BBC) back in January 2017 and many believed he was a major flop at the London Stadium.

The Scottish midfielder was loaned out to Aston Villa in the Championship for the 2017/18 campaign, where he showed some great form and rediscovered his confidence.

It appeared like his future with the Hammers was over, but he returned in the summer and has been kept around the first team by manager Manuel Pellegrini.

The 31-year-old is slowly becoming a key West Ham performer this season and managed to force his way into the starting XI.

 

Snodgrass has made 17 appearances across all competitions this season, scoring two goals and supplying an impressive seven assists.

Snodgrass is certainly one of the biggest success stories so far under Pellegrini and his near-£10million fee is beginning to look like a major bargain.

The dazzling wide man has the technical ability to provide some great deliveries into the box, while his defensive work-rate is a huge part of his game too.

His goal involvement is proving his value to the team and the left-footed ace should be eyeing a purple patch of form considering the club’s favourable upcoming league fixtures.
