West Ham winger Max Cornet is delighted to have finally returned to action and is ready to help the club fight to stay in the league and win the Europa Conference League.

The Ivory Coast international is back in action following over 5 months on the sidelines with a calf injury, which was a bitter blow for the highly rated player who sighed for the club from Burnley in the summer.

His return feels like it’s come at a critical time for West Ham, with the club entering the business end of a difficult season with the club battling to remain in the Premier League.

One shining light though is our Europa Conference League progress and form, with David Moyes’ side close to securing a quarter final spot this week in the competition and being earmarked as one of the favourites to lift the trophy.

Max Cornet is now ready to help West Ham finish positively on both fronts, and is delighted to finally put his injury nightmare behind him at last.

“I’m feeling very good, with confidence, and let’s move forward,” Cornet told the clubs Official Website. 

“I worked hard in France, because I already knew it would be tough when I came back. We have a lot of midweek games and I have to be ready and that’s why I really put the work in over there in France.”

The Hammers winger also feels that there are positives to take from the draw with Aston Villa, highlighting the importance that the club did not lose the match which we can now build on.

“We really showed our character today,” added Cornet. “It was important to continue on the same way following the Europa Conference League and like I said, if we can’t win it’s important not to lose – and it will be an important point at the end of the season.”
