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."

sn'tthis strange. Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
