Premier League: Diafra Sakho says West Ham wins are priority
Last Updated: 20/10/14 4:54pm
West Ham United hot-shot Diafra Sakho admits winning games is more important than his own goalscoring exploits.
Sakho has been one of the revelations of the season after scoring his sixth goal in his last six games in Saturday's win over Burnley.
The 24-year-old was also involved in the other goals for Enner Valencia and Carlton Cole and is proving to be one of the bargains of the season following his £3.5million switch from Metz.
Sakho joined West Ham after scoring 20 goals in 36 matches last season to help win the French Second Division and Hammers co-owner David Sullivan played a key role in pushing through a deal for the skilful forward.
The Senegal international is loving life at West Ham and is keen to keep on scoring, but insists winning games comes before his own personal glory.
"I am delighted with my goalscoring form, but the most important thing is that West Ham keep winning games," Sakho told Sky Sports.
"It is nice to have made such a good start to playing in the Premier League, but I do not mind who scores the goals as long as West Ham win.
"I have settled well into life in England and I thank my team-mates for helping me a lot since I arrived.
"Everyone at the club - the manager, the coaching staff and the owners have been very good to me and I just want to repay them by scoring goals and doing my best for the team.
"I love playing for West Ham and playing for our fans is such a great experience as they have been so supportive of me and they help inspire me when I play."
