Crazybola.com – New West Ham United recruit Nikola Vlasic says now is the right time for him to come back to play in England.

Nikola Vlasic was then loaned to CSKA Moscow until finally getting a permanent contract. He also played for the Russian club for more than 100 games, scoring 33 goals and registering 21 assists and his performances were much more mature.
The midfielder is now back playing in the Premier League by accepting a proposal from West Ham United. The East London football club tied him to a five-year contract. To bring them they have to pay 30 million euros or the equivalent of 506 billion rupiah.
Despite having an unpleasant experience before in the Premier League, Nikola Vlasic insists that he is now better and is ready to give his best for West Ham United.
Talk to West Ham TV, The 23-year-old footballer says now is the right time for him to step up and play in the Premier League for a great club like West Ham United. So he thought it was extraordinary.
Nikola Vlasic also explained that now as a player he feels better and his mentality is not what it was when he was 19 years old. He also explained that when he played at Everton he refused to be called a failure. According to him, he was just unlucky because of the change of coach from Ronald Koeman to Sam Allardyce.
Now, he insists the situation is different and has come to a much bigger club where West Ham expect a lot from him. On the other hand, he also expects from himself good things. Therefore, he thought it would be a fun time.
In addition to playing in the domestic league, in the 2021/22 season David Moyes’ team will also play on the European stage. It is worth waiting for whether Nikola Vlasic can bring the Hammers to talk or not in the new season.
