Lukasz Fabianski isn’t having the best of times at West Ham.
The Hammers are bottom of the Premier League table with four losses from four games in the new Manuel Pellegrini era.
It’s especially disappointing because of the recruitment the club made during the summer, including signing the Polish goalkeeper.
Players are still getting used to each other, and it may take some time. The international break won’t help, but it does give West Ham’s called up players a chance for a break from domestic football difficulties.
But Fabianski is finding a similar problem.
There’s changes in the Polish set-up after a disappointing World Cup performance, and some of those called up are a complete surprise to Fabianski… he doesn’t know them.
Poland’s TVP Sport quote the West Ham stopper as saying: “When I saw the squad, I must admit that I did not know them all. I was at the club, saw the list and I had to Google Rafał Pietrzak from Wisła Kraków. My teammates caught me and I had to explain. I wanted to prepare for new colleagues, check who plays in what position.”
Fabianski will hope the new players work together better than they have at West Ham so far.
