Diafra Sakho and David Gold are both very happy to see Mauro Zarate back at Upton Park.
The skilful front man had a tough first season under Sam Allardyce and was farmed out to Queens Park Rangers in January where he was ‘branded’ unfit and placed on special fitness regime.
But he looked in great nick last night as the team cruised past Lusitans and Sakho said: “Today I’m happy that Mauro was back.”
And he is pleased that Morgan Amalfitano was involved too adding: “It’s good for the striker to have two players like them assisting them.”
He added: “Zarate assisted the first, and Amalfitano the second. They are important players for passes and assists for me.”
