Kieron Dyer was delighted with his contribution for West Ham United in their victory over Wolves.
"Since the new manager has come in, he has been great for me," the 30-year-old told whufc.com. "He has given me the confidence and told me is part of his plans and I just can't wait to get the season going."
Adding to his 33 international caps is certainly not on his mind, as he feels he has a job to do first with the club in terms of form and fitness.
"I have had the question numerous times and I haven't even played 90 minutes in two years so to be even labelled with England is ludicrous.
"My job is to just get on the pitch with West Ham. They employ me and they haven't seen me on the pitch, the fans haven't seen me on the pitch so I just want to play for West Ham. England doesn't even come into it - I don't even think about England. I just want to play for West Ham."
