West Ham midfielder Mo Diame believes he made the correct decision in moving to The Boleyn after some critics questioned his decision to snub interest from Champions League clubs.
The 25 year-old Senegal international was reported to have attracted interest from several Champions League clubs after his contract with Wigan expired in July, but he chose to join newly promoted West Ham United.
However, with Sam Allardyce’s men positioned nicely at 6th place in the Premier League, Diame feels his choice has been fully vindicated.
People did say ‘Why are you going to West Ham when you can play in the Champions League?’ but they can see why I did now, he told West Ham TV.
It is a very big club in England and I am very happy to be here, now I am hoping that our good performances will continue.
That is why I came here. When I spoke to the club I knew they were trying to build a very good team.
We are working very hard every day on the training ground and you can see it is paying off.
Diame has been exceptional for The Hammers this season and has been our stand out player along with his midfield partners Noble and Nolan.
It was reported in the press this week that he may have a £7 Million release clause in his contract, I hope this is not true or that we get this rectified sharpish as on current form we will have a lot of clubs sniffing around for him in January.
