West Ham hero Sakho happy to stick with modest goals target

West Ham United striker Diafra Sakho is happy to stick with a modest scoring target - for now.

The 24-year-old Senegal forward has broken a 26-year-old record by scoring in his first five appearances for the Hammers.

But he told the Newham Recorder: "The target is only 10 goals.

"I didn't know how things were going to pan out, but it is still only 10.

"I'm the sort of person that once I've a target in mind, I stick to it, even when I know that perhaps I'm going to achieve it, I still have to get there."

That means Sakho is already halfway to his target, so what happens if he manages to reach it?

"The moment I get to 10, I'll set new targets, 15, 16,or 17 perhaps, but personally, for me, the target is 10."
