Manuel Lanzini has made it clear he wants to stay at West Ham declaring: “The West Ham fans are fantastic and I hope to be part of this new change and to be on the pitch doing my job.”
The 22 year old has made a brilliant start to his loan period and is looking forward to life at the Olympuc Stadium adding: “I am playing football in one of the best leagues in the world and I am really enjoying it.
Speaking to www.whufc.com he added: “Moving to the new Stadium is a big investment and change for the club. Why can’t we dream big? But I think we have to think about the present first of all and carry on the path that we have been taking.
“When the team is doing well success eventually follows and we want to achieve great things.”
He added: “London is a beautiful city that I have always wanted to see and learn about. It has got so much history and there are some wonderful sights to see here.
“I am able to do what I love so when I get to walk around the City it is also fantastic. Settling in quickly has been very important for me and having so many players who I can speak the same language with has been a crucial factor.
“These players have been a key part for me settling in as well as the English players and everyone else in the group. I would like to thank them for helping me. I have been learning to speak English and hope to understand more soon.”
Next up it;s Chelsea and Lanzini said: “I have never had the chance to play against a team managed by Jose Mourinho but I am happy to be in the position to play in such a big game knowing exactly what it means to the club.
“I know all the South American players at Chelsea by name and am very excited about facing them and playing in such a big game.
“I know it is very important for us as we look to maintain our high position in the table. If we carry on playing like we have been there is no reason why we cannot do that.
“Why cannot we beat Chelsea as well? We are always thinking big and aiming high here and that is the main priority.
“Slaven is a very good coach and is able to transmit his ideas to the players very easily. He sets the team up well for every match and as a group we always follow what he says.
“As you can see from the results that has been working very well and the rest of the coaching staff have had a very good effect on the team.”
