Robert Snodgrass hasn’t enjoyed life at West Ham since his £11million move from Hull in January 2017, but he’s set to get another chance at the London Stadium under Manuel Pellegrini.
The West Ham Way podcast stated that he has impressed the new manager and that he’s played his way back into contention.
ExWHUemployee, who has very close ties to the club, said: “Apparently Pellegrini has been really impressed [with Snodgrass]. He’s gone from the fringes and seen as a no-hoper to having a chance.”
That would be a fairly sizeable shock after Snodgrass completely flopped across just 15 appearances for West Ham, before he was shipped out on loan to Aston Villa.
At Villa Park, Snodgrass rediscovered the form that attracted West Ham in the first place, scoring eight goals and registering 13 assists in 43 Championship games.
The 29-time Scotland international helped Aston Villa make the play-off finals, but that ended in heartache for the midlands club.
And now it looks like he’s played his way into a possible West Ham first-team recall, which will come as a major surprise to fans.
However, Pellegrini is the sort of manager who can get the best from anyone, and playing among the new West Ham players – even if he comes from the bench – could show fans a completely new player.
