West Ham's Dyer hails Neill leadership skills

Neill's form last season was disappointing and, with The Hammers often failing to impress their home fans, the captain became a scapegoat.

However Dyer, who like Neill is hoping for a much better season next time around following his return from injury has described his skipper as 'the best captain I have ever had.'

"As a player, if you have got a problem, he will sort it out," said Dyer. "He is a great man.

"He thought the players were low (after the 4-1 defeat at Manchester United in May) and suggested a get together to build team spirit up. That's the kind of man he is."
