Adrian: ‘Fans the most important part of the club’

AdrianAdrian – in his first recorded interview in English – had the Hammers supporters on his lips from that historic moment declaring: “I feel really happy to play for the West Ham fans.”

And he added: “I enjoy the communication between them and me because I think the fans are the most important part of the Club.

“Every away game they go to the other city and at home I think that the West Ham fans are great.”

Adrian beat off competition from captain Kevin Nolan to win his second Player of the Month award and talking to the official site today said:¬†“I feel really good, really happy, because this award is difficult for a player to win and I’ve got my second in a row which is very difficult.

“I think it’s my award but also for all of my teammates because without them I wouldn’t have this award.

“If you have clean sheets in a few games then you have more confidence and more opportunity to win three points.”

Adrian facces the likes of  Wayne Rooney, Robin van Persie and Juan Mata and the Manchester United cast of stars on Saturday but has no fear dspite being beaten three times at Old Trafford on his Premier League debut.

He said: “It’s an important game and a difficult game but since then we have gained more confidence, that’s important.

“I think that with us playing at home it will make it a good game and we will try to win the three points.

“It was difficult to make my debut there, but here every match is difficult and you need the right mentality and concentration in every game because nobody gives you the three points for nothing.”
