PDC claims his destiny is at West Ham


Di CanioPaolo Di Canio has spoken of his undying love for the Irons and how he still nurses an ambition to be involved at the club.

The hammers legend – speaking to Sky Sports – discussing the London Stadium said: “To go into a new stadium that looked nothing like the old one was not easy.

“It felt too big, there was too much space around the field and the atmosphere can never be the same. It was not easy, but in the end they have done a good job. They got some good results, especially the 1-0 win against Spurs. That should be the beginning of a new history for West Ham.

I have always said it is my destiny to come back to West Ham and I never change my opinion. Until I die, I hope to have a role at West Ham, because it would be fantastic before finishing my life. I will never give up, but obviously I know that the club have their own programme.

“I follow them with all respect, with my heart and full of passion for West Ham. I will follow them until I die, whether I get a chance to go back or not. I belong to the family.”

    Maybe the new striker coach that would be good may get some goals next season

    I wish he was allowed to train one of the youth teams would be great to see him back involved with the club.

    made the hairs on the me arms stand up…. think he deserve it

  • JRS says:

    Would love to give him a role legends like him who are loyal can make a big difference. But Rio offered to come in last year and help sort out Defence which I wanted but Bilic declined which they were teammates seems it would have been perfect but could be a CB thing.
    Would have both of them here would Instill some passion and loyalty into some of our players

      Di Canio has coached and managed. Rio has no experience as a coach at all.
