Amalfitano: Why I signed

Football - FA Premier League - West Ham United FC v Liverpool FCMorgan Amalfitano is a very happy Hammer!

Having earned himself a new deal the Frenchman – speaking better English at any time over his time at West Brom on loan and now a full time Iron – has spoken of his delight at being a permanent part of Upton Park scene.

He told the official site: “β€œIt was good to sign because I like England and English football, The Premier League is the best I think and I wanted to stay and try to improve my game again.

β€œI feel happy here, my family do too and I want to learn better English. London is a very nice place and in my head it was that reason that I decided to sign a new deal.

β€œI think the club is right for me and I would like to give as much as I can back. As long as I do my best that is all I need to do.”

He could have ended with a quick chorus of ‘Maybe it’s because i’m a Londoner’ but not sure the English stretched that far!

  1. I like Amalifitano,he is a decent player.Pity he hasnt had a few more opportunities this season,when he has came on a few times he has changed the games.We were a different team when he came on at Chelsea with Song.Maybe a new manager might give him more playing time.Unless it was Bielsa who let him go from Marseille πŸ˜‰

  2. I’m really happy he signed a new deal, he’s a quality palyer. I prefered he was saying ” I’m very happy because I know Allardyce will not be my manager next year, so I’ll have the opportunity to play”.

  3. I remember saying to the old man at the home game against Hull when he came on: ‘Good player Amalfitano, I like him’. Then shortly after he put in our second. Well glad when I heard he signed a new contract.
