They say it’s always good to keep footballers on their toes.
So, ahead of the start of the new season, principal club sponsors Betway decided to organise a surprise training session for some of the West Ham players.
And who better to take charge for one afternoon only than former footballer, social media extraordinaire and passionate Hammers fan Stevo the Mad Man?
The drill was simple: a classic game of heads and volleys with the aim of scoring 10 goals as quickly as possible.
Putting their techniques to the test were Pablo Zabaleta, Aaron Cresswell, Pedro Obiang and Ashley Fletcher, appearing in his final session before moving to Middlesbrough.
But which players impressed the stand-in gaffer with their finishing skills, and who would be subjected to the traditional playground punishment for finding themselves stuck in goal when the last shot went in?
