West Ham legend Paolo di Canio has told fans that new signing Alessandro Diamanti is a better player than he was!
Di Canio was in London this week and visited his old haunt at Upton Park.
He told WHUTV: "Some people say that Diamanti is a mixture of Di Canio and Zola. I don't think so, he is probably better than us! He is a completely different player. He is a player that can give some quality. He has good dribbling, a good shot and a good free-kick and he can help the supporters to have a better day as he is a player that can give quality.
"He is not similar to me and he is not similar to Zola. With his qualities - goals and assists - he can help the team get out of the difficult situation."
