According to Issa Diop, his love for the Hammers goes farther than just his current contract and he really wishes he could be successful there.
Issa Diop started his professional career in 2014 with Toulouse.
And in 2018 he moved to West Ham United, but according to him, he doesn’t want to use the Hammers as a springboard.
“West Ham, for me, it was not and is still not a springboard to go elsewhere, it’s the club where I want to try to become the best defender I can be, compared to my qualities,” he was quoted by The Standard.
“Whether technical, tactical, physical, I still have a large margin of progression.”
He explained: “It is the performance that I will make in the match that will determine if I have the level to play with Les Bleus (France).”
“It’s up to me to work. That’s how I see things.”
“All very good players go into the national team. Well, if I am very good, it will come if it should come. Obviously, it’s a goal, but the proof that I deserve to reach it, it’s me who must give it,” he said.
“West Ham, for me, it was not and is still not a springboard to go elsewhere, it’s the club where I want to try to become the best defender I can be, compared to my qualities.”
