West Ham keeper Jussi holds no Adrian grudge

West Ham United veteran Jussi Jaaskelainen holds no grudge against goalkeeper rival Adrian.

The No13 took Jaaskelainen's place between the posts in January with the Finn then unable to displace him.

"[Losing your place] is part and parcel of football," he told

"Adrian has done very well, and the only thing I could do is keep working hard - the main thing is to support everybody in the team.

"He has been playing consistently well and that's the main aim for a goalkeeper. I can't have too much to be disappointed about.

"If you look at the season as a whole, we started by playing very well but we didn't get the results that we needed.

"When you don't get them, confidence drops and it was a tough season but we've come through it and hopefully next year will be better."
