West Ham ace Michail Antonio: Taking No9 shirt was difficult

West Ham ace Michail Antonio says taking the No9 shirt was a difficult decision.

Antonio admitted he was unsure about trading his No30 to become West Ham's No9 but he celebrated with two goals against Leicester.

"It was a difficult decision," said Antonio.

"I've been here seven years and always been number 30. Over the last two years, playing No 9, I feel taking that shirt and owning it was key for me.

"That was the only reason I did it. I have loved the 30 shirt so it was difficult for me. But I thought, let's do it, no problem."
