Haller only joined West Ham in the summer, but he has wasted no time making himself the main goalscoring threat at the London Stadium.
Haller has scored three goals for West Ham in his first three appearances, but the high standards that he sets for himself have already been shown.
When Haller netted his first two goals for West Ham in a 3-1 win over Watford, he came out to the press and suggested that his performance in the contest was poor.
Diop has now revealed that the powerful striker was ‘gutted’ after the match, but the centre-back has suggested he wants more ‘bad’ performances just like that one.
“He has the ambition to be the best. He’s very good, he’s very clever and after Watford he was not very happy because he said he played badly and we played badly but he scored two goals, so it’s good and I hope he’s going to be bad all season and score two goals in every game,” Diop, who was linked with a £45 million move to Manchester United this summer (Express), laughed.
Haller’s start at West Ham has excited supporters about the damage he could cause this season.
If Haller keeps up his current level of performances, then the Hammers are going to be a major threat to the top six this term.
West Ham are currently in seventh place in the Premier League table, with their next match coming against Aston Villa on Monday evening.
