The Scotsman has joined Aston Villa on loan for the rest of the season but it seems unlikely he will return to West Ham after a dismal half a season at the London Stadium.
Snodgrass had started the season strongly with Hull but failed to score a single goal in his 15 appearances in claret and blue.
Since making the switch to Villa, Snodgrass explained to the Birmingham Mail that he had been forced into the left wing slot as a replacement for Dimtri Payet, saying he would rather play on the left or in the No.10 slot.
“I think last season my quality was scoring goals and creating goals and I did that in the first part of the season [at Hull],” Snodgrass said.
“I went to West Ham and I had a manager that played me out of position. To be honest with you it was very tough to take.
“Sometimes , with the way you’ve been brought up, you try to just put your heart on your sleeve and play anywhere.
“To get the best out of any player you need to play him in his best position, it’s as simple as that.”
“I’ve done it my full career,” he said. “I’ve scored goals, created goals everywhere I’ve been.
“You need to play your right position and this is the reason why I made the step to try and go and play football.
“I spoke to the manager there (West Ham) and said to him, ‘You wanted me to try and replace Payet, it’s not my position’.
“I couldn’t have made that any more clear. When I spoke to him this season I said ‘I need to play my position, I need a run of games in my position’.
“This is the reason why I’ve come here.
“I’ve got a manager who knows what I’m about.
“He’s signed me for a lot of money at Hull. To get the best out of any player you need to play them in their right position, it’s as simple as that.”
