Andriy Yarmolenko, the leader of Ukraine's national football team, will get a chance to confirm his reputation of a skillful player. The Telegraph wrote that, referring to Manuel Pellegrini, the head coach of West Ham United.
'I have worked in England for five years now, and I know a lot of West Ham. I know that the fans are fond of a beautiful, attack-driven football, which is perhaps one of the reasons why they asked me to join the team. We like skillful players who are necessary for the beautiful and attack-driven football. We purchased very skillful players like Felipe Anderson and Yarmolenko - they will be able to demonstrate why they boast such kind of reputation,' Pellegrini said.
Andriy Yarmolenko spent a year with Borussia Dortmund, but after the team changed the coach, the Ukrainian winger was sold to the London-based club.
The Ukrainian signed a four-year contract. According to unofficial information, the transfer cost 'Hammers' around $29 million. Yarmolenko’s transfer to Borussia Dortmund last year cost the same amount of money.
'Of course, I am very happy to sign for West Ham United. West Ham is a big club with good fans and I am happy to come to play in the Premier League. The Premier League is the best league in the world and I know that an interesting project is being built here at West Ham. The team wants to achieve high things and I am excited about this challenge,' Yarmolenko said, as West Ham United reports.
