West Ham fan’s favourite Pablo Fornals is looking forward to get back to action following the short winter break.
Speaking to the club’s official site before the FA Cup 4th Round tie versus Kidderminster Harriers, the attacking midfielder has set his eyes on a big end to the season for the Hammers.
He opened up about the aims for the rest of the season, the busy fixture schedule to come as well as what he’s been doing during the winter break with his newborn son.
West Ham star Pablo Fornals is raring to go after the winter break and has set targets of going as far as the club can in all competitions.
David Moyes‘ side have a congested fixture list coming up in February and March with the Europa League soon returning and Fornals is so important to the side having missed just two matches all season so far. On this he said, “We’ve played a lot of games since the start of the season, but that’s not a bad thing. We’re a great team, and we are playing in Europe, so we have to play many games.”
“I want to enjoy every game, play in as many matches as possible, and compete in every competition. We want to finish up the league table as high as we can, be in the FA Cup as long as we can and keep progressing in the Europa League too. As a player, that’s what I play for,” Fornals added.
Only six players such as, Tomas Soucek, who is in talks about a new contract have played more minutes than Fornals. His passion and willingness to not miss a match came through as he continued, “I’m a guy who always wants to play, and who wants to give his everything for the Club. I will be ready for the match (versus Kidderminster) if the gaffer needs me.”
The 25-year-old is not just a creative player but also one of the most hard-working and passionate members of the squad, once again Fornals showed the correct attitude ahead of this weekend’s FA Cup tie against a much lesser opposition from the 6th tier of English football. He said, ““I’m expecting a difficult game. When you’re in the FA Cup, teams from the lower divisions have the platform to really show how good they are, so it’s not going to be easy at all. We know Kidderminster will be up for this match, so it will be a big game for us.”
On the recent week off the West Ham players had while the transfer window ended in disappointment with no new arrivals, the Spaniard returned to his home country, “We went home to see family and showing our new baby our homeland and where we are from. We had a really lovely time.”
He continued, “It was the second time our families got to see our baby and with having a week away, if I hadn’t take our child back to Spain I think my mother and my mother-in-law would have killed us,” he joked.
It is clear Fornals is refreshed and ready for a vital few months in a claret and blue shirt. West Ham will need him at his best.
