Nene thanks Hammers fans

Departing forward Nene thanks the Hammers fans for their support

Nene has thanked the West Ham United fans for the support shown to him during his four months at the Boleyn Ground.

The Brazilian forward will be leaving the Club at the end of his contract on 30 June as he pursues top-flight football elsewhere.

He made eight Barclays Premier League appearances in claret and blue, and although he admits he hoped for more opportunities, he will leave London with fond memories.

Writing on his official Instagram account, the 33-year-old said: “My goal is to play for at least three more seasons at the top level and for that reason I need to go to another club.

“I thank the fans for their permanent support and wish the best success to my teammates and West Ham United.”
