Gianluca Scamacca amazed by West Ham fans

Gianluca Scamacca says he enjoyed his West Ham United debut in defeat to Manchester City on Sunday.

The Italian centre-forward was given a deafening welcome by the home fans in the 62,443-strong attendance when he replaced Michail Antonio early in the second half of Sunday's 2-0 Premier League defeat by Manchester City.

“The fans were amazing," he enthused. “We were sad because we didn't take the three points, but I think the team worked and gave everything.

“I have never experienced anything like that noise from the fans before. This is so good, this is so good, and I hope I can give them a goal as soon as possible."

Scamacca also told “I had a big chance and he made a big save, but sadly I was offside.

Manchester City are one of the best teams in the world and we tried to make the best, but now it's gone and we will think about the next game.

“We will think about the next game, so let's keep working and give everything and we can win this."
