Sakho dreaming of Stadium goals

Diafra Sakho wants to score the first goal at the Hammers' new home
Diafra Sakho took one look at West Ham United’s new home this week and, true to form, set his sights on scoring the first goal there.  

The Hammers’ leading marksman was joined by Joint-Chairman David Gold, Mark Noble and Winston Reid, to mark the new deal with Lycamobile on Tuesday. 
Sakho, who was visiting the former Olympic Stadium for the very first time, says the mind boggles at the prospect of playing there, even if it is now little more than just a season away.
“It's beautiful, I'd even say magnificent,” he told West Ham TV. “I'm eager to play there and pleased with everything that I’ve seen. Everyone dreams of playing there.  I would even like to score the first goal in the new Stadium. That would be amazing. 
“I hope to score the last goal at Upton Park as well and then the first one here! You have to be ambitious. We play for West Ham, if we're not ambitious, we won't be playing at the new Stadium.”
With 12 goals in all competitions to date, it has hardly taken Sakho long to endear himself to the West Ham faithful and the prospect of an even bigger, better atmosphere is music to his ears.
“I can't even imagine it. It's going to be something unforgettable. The first day that we step out there, we're going to feel that we've really gone to a new level.
“To go from 35,000 to 54,000 is massive. I think Season Tickets are going to go very quickly this year, that’s for sure.”
Sakho wants to repay those supporters’ faith with European football and expects the Hammers to be hitting the continent in the not too distant future.
“It’s the Club's objective at the moment to play European football at the new Stadium. We as players are here to make that happen. We'll give it our all in the next year to get there.”
Sakho and co, meanwhile, played host to Lycamobile global MVNOs Chairman Subaskaran Allirajah on a tour of the Club’s new Stadium at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, to mark the launch of the new partnership.
Lycamobile has been an official partner of the Club since the 2012/13 campaign and the renewal sees the deal extend to include the first two seasons in the new Stadium.
Subaskaran Allirajah, Chairman of Lycamobile, said: “We are so incredibly proud to be part of the West Ham success story, to extend our partnership for a further three seasons, and see this great Club take its well-deserved place in this iconic ground, home of the 2012 Olympic Games.”
