It seems things are going well in East London.
A 7th place finish, a new stadium, and European football means the Hammers have a lot to look forward to, and as of today they have a future starlet to go with it.
Domingos Quina was formerly a Chelsea player signed from Benfica, but dumped West London in search of further development elsewhere. Funnily enough elsewhere was actually a matter of being unattached, believing that Chelsea would never realistically give him a chance.
However since then he has become a Under 17 European Champion, and was being scouted by Man Utd, Liverpool, and even Arsenal. Which is why this is such a steal for the Hammers. Just two years ago no one would have chosen the Claret and Blue over any of the big clubs, but now they are competitors.
What may have appealed to Domingos Quina himself may have been the playing style exercised under Slaven Bilic. After all, a pacy dribbler equally comfortable across the field may take inspiration from a certain Dimitri Payet who’s style is not that far gone from the portuguese talent.
And if the forward ends up being even half the talent of the Hammers star, Quina is sure to go down a hit.
