West Ham boss Gianfranco Zola is confident 20 year old defender James Tomkins can go on to become a star at Upton Park. "I believe he can be very good," he said. "He's only 20 but playing like a veteran. He is so confident. He is a very complete defender.
"His attitude is very good and he has a lot of good competition for a place here and that has made him a better player. He can be a top defender."
"We have a group of good young players coming through and that is the key for us," Zola continued.
"It creates the kind of environment where everybody is at their best and the results are proving me right.
"We have players here who potentially can be as good as the others who have become champions now."
