?The Hammers were able to welcome royalty to east London and Prince Albert of Monaco predicts a big future for West Ham United over the next few years.

With the east London Club bidding an emotional farewell to the Boleyn Ground, Prince Albert was invited by owners David Gold and David Sullivan and Baroness Brady to see West Ham United in action.

Prince Albert already knew a great deal about Slaven Bilic and his players having followed the progress of Dimitri Payet last season and has nothing but praise for the way the talented forward has quickly become one of the best players in the Premier League.

With West Ham preparing for a big move into the new Stadium, Prince Albert believes it will only help the Club grow even stronger as they prepare to play in front of 60,000 fans.

Prince Albert said: “It was a great honour to be invited here. The way this club is developing is very encouraging.

“I am sure the the big move will help take them onto another level. I am sure it will have an incredible impact on the players.

“The West Ham fans will create a very special atmosphere there and I wish them a lot of successful seasons to come.”

Prince Albert reveals he is a big fan of Payet and can see why he is such a big hero with the West Ham United supporters.

Prince Albert added: “He has certainly made his mark already. He is an incredible player and very versatile. He is very powerful and I hope he will have many more successful seasons here.

“People in France are very aware of his impact and the way he has been adopted by the fans. Everybody is very proud of that.”
