“My English is getting better and I enjoy talking to the players, but I don’t understand Noble and [Jack] Wilshere,” Yarmolenko says. “Mark Noble does not shut up! But he’s a cool guy, very happy and joyful. Sometimes I have problems with his English so have to ask him to speak a bit more slowly. He’s an old man, you know, so I have to respect him.”
“People see me wearing the team kit so recognise me, and tell me they’re West Ham supporters. I’ve been using taxis a lot over the last month to get around, and taxi drivers always tell me they support West Ham. Why is that?”
Sounds like a good guy, gutted that it looks like he’ll be missing tomorrow.
