Coufal: Winning Mentality Helping West Ham’s CL Charge


Vladimir Coufal knows what it takes to win league titles and it is that winning mentality that he hopes can help get West Ham over the line as they bid to bring Champions League football to the London Stadium next season.

The battle to finish in the Premier League’s top four continues to gather pace and the Hammers’ 3-2 win against Leicester last weekend blew the race wide open, leaving David Moyes’ side fourth and just one point behind the Foxes in third.

However, Chelsea and Liverpool are firmly on the coattails of West Ham – who face Newcastle at St James’ Park, live on Sky Sports on Saturday (kick-off 12.30pm) – and with seven games to go the pressure is firmly on as they look to secure a place in the Champions League for the first time in the club’s history.

Coufal, who arrived in east London last October in a £5m deal with Slavia Prague, knows what it takes to get over the line, winning two league titles with the Czech club, and he’s hoping that experience, and the similar experiences of the likes of Tomas Soucek, Jesse Lingard at Manchester United and Declan Rice with England, can prove invaluable for the Hammers between now and the end of the season.
