Speaking to Swiss outlet Blick, former West Ham defender Fabio Daprela shared his thoughts on Albian Ajeti’s move to Hammers, and revealed why he thinks the supporters will love their new signing.
Ajeti joined the Hammers in an £8m move from FC Basel in the summer window having scored 21 goals last season as Basel finished second in the Swiss Super League. Not only did he prove excellent in front of goal during 2018-19, but the Switzerland international also laid on 11 assists.
When asked about his former side and what Ajeti will bring, Daprela told: “They appreciate a sliding tackle more than a goal!
“What matters to them is the fighting attitude that the players show on the pitch.
“The fans will love him because he is a kind of player who will not shy away from a fight for the shirt.”
