Keen impressed with Di Michele

Caretaker manager Kevin Keen has spoken positively about his first training session in charge of West Ham United.

Among those taking part were new signing David Di Michele, who signed for the club in a deadline-day move from Torino. "David looked very sharp and is very much a West Ham-type of footballer - he will be one the fans will enjoy watching," Keen said. "He has had a lot of experience in Italy and as I say, this morning he showed a lot of good touches and linked up well.

"It was a good session," added Keen. There are players away on international duty but we still had around 24 lads - including the young pros, so it was good. The lads all worked hard and were positive. I am sure they are looking to move on and go forward now."

Keen said the focus was on the trip to West Bromwich Albion on Saturday week. "It is now all about picking ourselves up, going again and making sure we are training properly and doing the right things to be ready for our next game, which is West Brom away. This will be a tough game but one we are looking forward to."
