Jonathon Callieri is sorry he didn’t score the “perfect goal” against Swansea but wants a chance from the start against Sunderland at the weekend.

The front man volleyed wide after a piece of Lanzini magic last Saturday and said:  “I was close to scoring a goal, maybe I would have scored that goal on a different occasion. These are things that happen in football and I will try to score the next game.

“It would have been a perfect goal. It was a very good move from Manuel but I was not lucky to finish that properly.”

“Manu is a good colleague, I spend a lot of time here with him and as fellow Argentinians, we always try to be together.”

“We have six games left. As a player, I always try to do my best in order to play all the games, but it is a manager´s decision to pick the team.

“Saturday could be a chance for me to start the game and, if I do, I will try to do my best to be manager´s first choice to play.

“People might expect us to win at Sunderland, but it will be a difficult game. It is again the last team of the table and they have to win, so I expect them to give it everything to beat us.”

  1. Deserves his chance from the start this weekend…

  2. Johnham Callieri is that you? 😂

    Yeah I actually think he might come good too JH1

  3. He has got plenty of talent . And considering we have only six games remaining he should be in starting line-up . It’s the only way to get some our lads up and running and come back next season with some faith in Thier own abilities . Byram should also be given these last games to get his confidence built up .
    Sunderland’s moral must be at an all time low now and Thier confidence definitely damaged . It should really be , logically , three points for the Hammers .
    But we all know that , for whatever reason , we tend to stumble when it comes to beating teams we should be stuffing . Still think we’ll get the points though .

  4. Sunderland and Defoe haven’t scored a goal for almost eight games. We all know what usually happens next…. the West Ham way!
