Diarra: I feel I have lost two years in my career

keepFormer Hammer Alou Diarra has been whinging to the French Media Lequipe about his time at West Ham.

“I am particularly happy to be back here in a club with people I appreciate where I had a good year.  I canceled my contract with West Ham, with whom remained for me one year. I want to find competition, this is all that I missed. The rest has not changed. I feel I have lost two years in a career, it counts. There was no solution. I was very ill-advised,  I left Marseilles very determined, with an international status, to bring my experience of the Champions League, the big games. I got a club  whose coach did not count on me. The dice were loaded from the start.”

Alou Diarra is believed to have walked away with a £1.25m pay off in return for him cancelling his contract.
