Pablo Fornals believes his goal at Liverpool in the 2019/20 season was the turning point in his West Ham career

Pablo Fornals has revealed that the goal he scored against Liverpool in the 2019/20 season was the turning point in his West Ham career.

Speaking to the Daily Mail, the 25-year-old Spaniard has pinpointed this goal as the kickstart for his Irons career, which has led to him receiving a recall to the Spain squad.

Fornals has started the season brilliantly with two goals and an assist in his first three league games, and he clearly loves life at the London Stadium.

He said: “There was an injury at half-time, and there were doubts about what to do because the manager had only just taken over, and he asked Mark Noble what, between various options, he would do?

“Mark was in this stage of his career where he was a bit of a link [between players and manager], and he looked at me and turned back and said for the coach to give the opportunity to me.”

From this moment on, he hasn’t looked back.

From this point onwards, it has pretty much been success after success for Fornals, who has appeared to add more end product to his game this season.

Last season, he played 33 league games in which he scored five goals and provided four assists, so he has already nearly matched his goal and assist tally this season.

The Spaniard made a good return to the Spain side at the weekend as he recorded an assist in a 4-0 win.

So, things are looking good for Fornals, and we recommend any Irons fan to read this interview; he just comes across as such a genuine person who loves playing for the Hammers.

It is great to hear that he thinks this was the turning point, and we can’t disagree with what he said.

In other West Ham news, the squad are unhappy with one player after major development.
