West Ham boss Zola likens Diamanti to himself and Di Canio

West Ham United boss Gianfranco Zola can see a lot of himself in new signing Alessandro Diamanti.

The attacking midfielder is moving to Upton Park for £5.5 million from Livorno and Zola told Gazzetta dello Sport: "He's a cross between myself and Paolo Di Canio."

Diamanti has agreed a five-year deal and said: "The Livorno fans will remain in my heart. I go into the unknown, but I am motivated."
