West Ham skipper Neill excited by Zola arrival

West Ham captain Lucas Neill is excited about playing for new manager Gianfranco Zola. "He has already expressed his desire to play out from the back and play a more creative brand of football," said Neill.

"He'd like a bit more patience and passing, which we all want to play anyway."

Neill also paid tribute to former manager Alan Curbishley when he said: "We can be grateful for what he did for us because he kept us up, had a difficult time last year with the squad and got us off to a good start this year."
