Nani reveals what's in store for West Ham

New West Ham United technical chief Gianluca Nani has revealed to fans what he is capable of achieving after eight years at Brescia.

He told WHUTV: "I think we did a good job because we brought some Italian players to be world champions like [Andrea] Pirlo and [Luca] Toni. Other players that were in the national team like [Aimo] Diana, [Daniele] Bonera, [Stefano] Mauri, or players ... like Matuzalem, [Stephen] Appiah, [Marek] Hamsik, [Fabiano] Santacroce, [Danny] Szetela, [Gilberto] Martinez, [Andrea] Carraciolo."

He will "try to do the same job" in east London, but stressed there was a key difference.

"Brescia was a small club and to try to survive, they have to sell players each year. Here at West Ham we have another ambition, the ambition is to try to build a team on and off the field ... We have to build a structure able to find players. Young players and senior players and step by step try to grow each year. We have to work hard, step by step."
