West Ham United didn’t get the best out of striker Sebastien Haller, but he is enjoying his time back in the Netherlands with Ajax.

The Hammers splashed big money on Haller in 2019, landing him for Eintracht Frankfurt.

Having scored regularly with Eintracht Frankfurt and Utrecht, Haller looked like being a star for West Ham.

Sadly, it just never happened. There were glimmers of hope and moments of quality throughout, but just not enough for West Ham.

The Hammers decided to sell Haller in January, allowing him to join Ajax. That meant a reunion with Erik ten Hag having worked together at Utrecht.

So far, it’s working very well.

Haller has bagged nine goals in 13 Eredivisie games, with his Champions League record particularly impressive.

With a brace against Besiktas on Wednesday, Haller has now set a Champions League record.

Haller has scored more goals than any other players in his first five Champions League games, with his nine goals beating Erling Haaland’s record.

That just goes to show that Haller can find the net in the right system.

West Ham left back Arthur Masuaku has now taken to Twitter to react to Haller’s form, simply stating ‘my bro’.

Hammers fans responded, suggesting that they wish Haller all the best but seeing him succeed elsewhere hurts…
