During training, Michail Antonio, the West Ham United star, has jokingly referred to Lukasz Fabianski as “so annoying”, writes the TBR.
The Hammers’ recent win at Craven Cottage, following a 5-1 defeat to Newcastle United, provided some much-needed breathing space for manager David Moyes. The match ended with a 1-0 victory for West Ham, courtesy of Harrison Reed’s own goal.
The clean sheet will also be a source of encouragement for Moyes, particularly after conceding five goals at home just a few days prior. Although Fabianski had a difficult game against Newcastle, Antonio praised the Polish goalkeeper for his excellent performance in the win against Fulham.
During his appearance on the Footballer’s Football Podcast, Antonio commended Fabianski for making a remarkable save against Fulham and revealed that the goalkeeper regularly pulls off such saves during training.
Antonio said: “As a footballer you are human so there are stages when you have stinkers, it’s how you pick yourself up again,”
“And he’s there one v one, he stayed up, stayed up strong and he tried to go round him.
“He does that to me in training so many times where you think you’re going to go round him, you knock it, and then somehow he gets a hand to it. It’s so annoying! But it’s so good how he managed to bring himself back in and show how strong he is.”
