West Ham United midfielder Valon Behrami was delighted with his comeback in yesterday's reserve-team appearance.

"It was fantastic for me," he told the club's official website.

"I've had a very hard six months, working everyday on my rehabilitation so it was a great feeling to be playing in this game.

"I don't know when I'll return to the first team. But I'm ready when Mister (Zola) needs me."
