West Ham midfielder Jarrod Bowen admits he never realised how big the club is until they won the Europa Conference League last season.
Bowen says the celebrations upon returning home from Prague made clear the size if the club.
He told Vibe with Five: "It's a bit of a 'pinch me' moment because you don't realise how special something is until you win the trophy.
"And then you come home to Prague to see that parade. You can't put it into words... all the people lining up on top of house, on top of traffic lights to get two minutes with us."
He added: "I didn't realise how big the club was! There are fans everywhere. Where I live everyone is a West Ham fan, no Tottenham fans - or maybe they don't want to tell me they are a Tottenham fan!
"West Ham fans everywhere. I didn't realise how big the club was when I first came, but now I am starting to become one of them, I'm starting to get a feel for it and go 'right, this is a massive club'."
