Pablo Armero: Impressed on his first West Ham start against Liverpool

Pablo Armero: Impressed on his first West Ham start against Liverpool

The Colombia international linked up with the Hammers from Napoli in January on a deal which is due to run until the end of the season.

He has had to be patient in his pursuit of first-team opportunities, but made his first start in Sunday's 2-1 defeat to Liverpool.

The 27-year-old full-back offered enough during that contest to suggest that he may be worth keeping on, and Armero would welcome the opportunity to discuss a deal after this summer's World Cup.

He said in the Newham Recorder: "Firstly, I think of West Ham and give the maximum result here. It is normal that as we are getting close to the World Cup I like to keep pace and be in full capacity.

"I would like to have a good end so in the future I have a new contract with the team."

On his performance against Liverpool, which saw him keep Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge relatively quiet, Armero said: "It has been a while without playing, actually from the beginning.

"It has been very important for me to play. I think I fulfilled what I wanted to do against Liverpool and I hope I can carry on enjoying the opportunities."

He added on adapting his game to meet the demands of English football: "It is a new experience for me, but it is very good. I like it.

"It is very fast and exciting and I like how the crowd enjoy the games. I think it is thrilling and encouraging playing here and I enjoy it."

t's wrong to be making a joke out of Bender's name at the expense of gay people. It's the kind of childish, uncivilised thing that Football365 would deride and ridicule if it was another media outlet saying. Why is there a need for jokes like this? Does it make your writers feel like men? F365 might suggest that I 'lighten up', but it is genuinely traumatic for people who have been oppressed all their lives to be the butt of jokes, and to be told...

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
