Top goal scorer in the Wet Ham's premier league history
Michail always had in his mind to make history. His dream came true, becoming the all-time goal scorer of West Ham United by scoring two goals in a 4-1 victory over Leicester City on the 23rd of August, 2021.
He broke the record of Paolo Di Canio. Since he was making history, he wanted to celebrate uniquely by grabbing a cardboard cut-out of himself and lifting it above and planting a kiss to himself.
In an interview, he said the reference behind the celebration was meant to be from the film Save the Last Dance, which he realized he made a mistake naming the wrong movie and later clarified it on Twitter where he tweeted getting the film name wrong in an interview. It was from the film Dirty Dancing.
He married his long-term girlfriend
Michail is happily married to his wife, Debbie Whittle. The couple wedded in June of 2017 after being together for years.
The couple was high together in their highs as well as low in their lows. It was a romantic country house wedding at Hoar Cross Hall Hotel in Staffordshire.
Michail describes his wife to be the rock of his family. The couple is living a blissful married life with no signs of divorce.
Blessed with four kids
In their more than a decade of relationship, the couple is blessed with adorable kids, boys Miles and Mikey and a girl Myla Rose.

His elder brother is the first person he seeks advice

According to Michail, his brother is the first person he seeks advice from. Reminiscing the past incident, Jacob recalled his young days when he thought of joining a gang, but his brother suggested against it.
He said, joining one gang when you already know the members from another gang results in fighting with your friends at the end.
Two months later, the same thing happened when one of his friends stabbed another friend.
Jacob is married to his wife, with whom he shares kids. He was the best man at his brother Michail's wedding.

Urged points deduction rather than fine on Racism
Michail was 13 years old when he became the victim of racial abuse from the opponent while he was playing for non-league club Tooting.

They will not be affected by paying a fine since the club will pay the fine, but if the point is deducted, then the club will be affected, and everybody is not going to repeat it. He further confessed to not being affected by Racism.
