West Ham fans not happy with the direction of the club’s Hammer of the Year award

“This award that I have received, I am very happy and very proud. I want to keep doing my job for this Club because I came here to do my job and everybody has seen what I can do and that I’m very happy to be here and I want to keep doing it.

“I try to do my best. The gaffer gave me some advice which was to run hard and do my best and I did it. All the players helped me. I love them and they love me – you can hear this!”
