West Ham‘s very own Czech mates, Tomas Soucek and Vladimir Coufal made it a Hammers one-two this week by claiming first and second in the nation’s Football of the Year awards.
Soucek earned the top award for the second consecutive year and Coufal was runner-up after the duo made excellent starts to their Premier League careers.
Having arrived on loan from Slavia Prague on loan last January, Soucek was snapped up on a permanent basis ahead of the start of the season.
Coufal arrived later on in the window for just £5m and has proven to be a shrewd piece of business.
These members of the Hammers faithful have been hailing their Czech pair on Twitter…
Give the boys a new contract each with a pay rise as their performances this season have been nothing short of outstanding. ⚒
