‘Soucek even better than Fernandes!' - Cole claims West Ham attacker has outshone Man Utd star

Tomas Soucek West Ham 2020-21

Tomas Soucek has been a better signing for West Ham than Bruno Fernandes has been for Manchester United, according to former Hammers star Carlton Cole.

Cole argues, however, that pound for pound, the £19 million ($24m) Czech has been the superior player.

“He's been immense this season. For me, he's obviously the signing of any club so far this season out of every club, pound for pound,” he said on Sky Sportsof the midfielder, who has netted seven goals this term.

“You talk about Bruno Fernandes being so impactful at Man Utd but for me, pound for pound, he's been even better than Fernandes.

“He's been everywhere. whenever he's on that pitch he breeds confidence for every West Ham player and every West Ham person connected to the club.

“I wasn't expecting to have a goalscoring midfielder at West Ham and he's just come in and done the job. He's been unbelievable and everyone's taken confidence from his performances so far.

“He's been outstanding and when you've got a player like that in your team, especially as the driving force in midfield, he's enabled to chip in with the goals and with Declan Rice around him, it's opened up the game for him too.”

Meanwhile, former Liverpool midfielder Jamie Redknapp compared the midfielder’s influence to Marouane Fellaini's at Everton under the current Hammers boss.

“He's been the Fellaini for them. David Moyes always liked that big midfielder coming into the box, score goals,” Redknapp said.

Although West Ham lost to Liverpool on Sunday, the London side are outperforming pre-season expectations and are presently challenging for a European spot.

They are fifth in the Premier League, just four points shy of fourth-placed Leicester.

Their next outing will come against Aston Villa at Villa Park on February 3, followed by a trip to Fulham the next Saturday.
