Tomas Soucek Outlines His Usual Christmas Plans In Hilarious Post-Match Interview
Tomas Soucek has admitted he usually has three weeks off and eats a lot of potato salad at Christmas in a hilarious post-match interview.
West Ham United midfielder Soucek popped up to score the winner against Everton on Friday evening, taking his side to 10th in the table.
He arrived in the Premier League back in January and right now is his first taste of winter in English football.
When BT Sport asked how he normally spends the festive period, the 25-year-old replied: "It was hard for me, normally I have three weeks off and eat a lot of potato salad in the Czech Republic!
"It was hard for me, normally I have three weeks off and eat a lot of potato salad in the Czech Republic!" :joy:
The crazy Christmas schedule was new for Tomas Soucek but he adapted and came up huge for @WestHam!

"But I've loved playing football during Christmas time, we've played three difficult games in six days, so it is good for us now to have some time off."
Fans have reacted to the interview and they hope other footballers can follow in Soucek's footsteps in 2021.
Clearly trying hard to pick up English and gave a lovely post match interview when other non-native speakers might have ducked it. Hats off! https://t.co/KBU4pvUax2

Soucek managed to settle a drab affair at Goodison Park in the 86th minute, when Aaron Cresswell's drive deflected off Yerry Mina into his path.
The former Slavia Prague man fired past Jordan Pickford to give manager David Moyes a first win in five.
Everton, meanwhile, are still in the top four.
Tonight's result also means manager Carlo Ancelotti remains winless in six games against Moyes.
