West Ham ace Maxwel Cornet may have a new position to play

There has been talks that West Ham player Maxwel Cornet may be seen playing in a new position. West Ham secured a move for the Ivorian to London in 2022 from Burnley. Since then, the 26-year old Ivory International is struggling to overcome his injuries and become a regular for the Hammers. But, during the International break, one can have seen him playing at the left wing-back. It is something that suggests his new role for the club as well. Though, it might not be an option as well since Hammers have a great squad.

Cornet may not be seen in a new role for West Ham

According to a football journalist Paul Brown, talking to Give Me Sport, says that Cornet is not upto the level to play at the highest level. He further added,

“I would be surprised to see Cornet playing as a left wing-back for West Ham. They don’t often play with wing-backs at the moment. Because they’ve signed a lot of very good midfielders, I think it would be difficult to play that way. I’m not really sure that Cornet is cut out for that in the Premier League, and it’s not something that Moyes has tried yet.”

” I guess Moyes would have looked at it and wondered whether that is an option. But he doesn’t look like someone who, naturally, would feel comfortable playing that way. I think he might get found out in the Premier League if he is tried out there, so it could be a little bit risky. He feels more like an impact player off the bench for West Ham, at best. He has the talent and is a scorer of spectacular goals – he did that quite often for Burnley – but he’s never really shown the kind of form for West Ham where you would say he deserves a run in the team from the start of the game. I think he is more likely to be used as an impact sub.”

Cornet can be used as a backup for Jarred Bowen, but it seems nothing more than that. Unfotunately for Maxwel Cornet, it does not seem to be a much bright future ahead at West Ham United.
