Sullivan Talks A Good Buy (No, Not A Goodbye!)
Well, if we believe David - and who wouldn't? - the signing of Der Hammer Hitzlsburgermeister is something of a coup. Explaining the German's failure to impress at Lazio, Sullivan said, "He was injured when he went to Lazio, but he has now recovered, and we have done our homework on this score. He made four appearances at the end of the season that helped keep Lazio up, he's a fighter as well, the kind of player this club needs."
He continued: "Lazio offered him a four-year contact to stay, he had offers from four other Premier league clubs, and a top Spanish club. We are so pleased we managed to persuade him to come to West Ham, we feel it is a great coup considering how many top sides wanted him."
"He will have a huge and immediate impact and he is an international player of the highest quality. He is a midfielder who scores a goal every five or six games, which will be a real asset to the team."
Well I'm impressed! Let's hope he lives up to the top billing when the new season kicks off!
