Antonio Cassano has warned Fiorentina ahead of the Europa Conference League final that West Ham have a ‘tank’ in our side.
West Ham face Fiorentina in the Europa Conference League final on June 7th in a game that could see us win our first trophy in 43 years.
The Hammers have been superb in the Conference League this season, and thank God we have been, considering our woeful Premier League campaign.
Our best player across all competitions this season has been Declan Rice – no shock there. The 24-year-old is an immense player.
If we are to win the Conference League, Dec will need to be on his very best form in the final. And a famous Italian ex-player has warned Fiorentina just how good the Hammers skipper is…
Italian legend warns Fiorentina about West Ham ‘tank’ ahead of Europa Conference League final
Ex-Italy international and Roma, Real Madrid and AC Milan striker Antonio Cassano has been speaking to Bobo TV about the final out in Prague next month.
The 40-year-old warned Viola about one West Ham player in particular:
“Fiorentina have a 50/50 chance of winning the Conference League. It’s true that West Ham have had difficulties in the league however they have 3/4 very very strong players. Rice in midfield is a tank.”
Rice has the ability to drive the Hammers on to a win against Fiorentina, there is no doubt about that.
The game out in Prague in 10 day’s time has the makings of a truly memorable night for the West Ham fans.
If we do win the Europa Conference League, it will be our first trophy for 43 years! That long barren run has to end soon, surely.
And Rice will undoubtedly have a key role to play for West Ham, if he and his teammates are to lift that trophy inside the Fortuna Arena.
