The Czech striker has just joined the club and he said he wants to score at least ten goals during the 2018-2019 English Premier League Season

Czech forward Matej Vydra recently joined Burnley, and after three games he was able to score his first goal.

Recently the 26-year-old said he wanted to score at least ten goals in the English Premier League this season.

And he just started this weekend in the 4-0 Burnley win over Bournemouth.

“Everyone, from the first minute, wants to show the manager on their full debut that he was right to pick you in the first XI. I hope I did that,” he told the Burnley Express.

“This is my first goal since 2014 in the Premier League. Every goal in the Premier League is special because it’s the best league in the world and I’ve been working so hard to get here. I couldn’t be happier right now.”

“But I never set targets for any season. My target is always to play and bring the best performance for the team,” he added.

“The Premier League has changed since I was last here but I’ve grown up a bit more and I’m more experienced now.”

“I’m not a young kid like I was before so I think I can be ready. I spoke with the gaffer about my role and told him that my best position was to play with a strong and tall striker,” he commented.

“I like to run around him when he’s won the header. That’s me, I’m quick and I like to play between the lines. I’m ready.”
