West Ham's Dyer: Cisse my inspiration

Crocked West Ham United midfielder Kieron Dyer is using Djibril Cisse as inspiration as he recovers from a double leg fracture suffered last week.

Dyer told whufc.com: "As I said before, the doctors were delighted with how the operation went and if there are any consolations to this, they did explain to me that the best place to break your leg is in the middle of the shin because there are usually more complications when it is closer to the ankle, like what happened to Dean Ashton, but my break has happened in a much safer place.

"If you look at a player like Djibril Cisse, who used to play for Liverpool, he had exactly the same injury as me and he has obviously come back and made a full recovery, which holds me in good stead as I plan to do exactly the same and be back playing for West Ham and England."
