Bored West Ham United fans will get a real treat today (Wednesday).

That’s after Hammers legend Paolo Di Canio signed up for a big interview with old teammate Trevor Sinclair on talkSPORT.

Di Canio will be forever in the hearts of West Ham fans for his passionate displays during a golden three years at the club.

Di Canio to bring some light in the darkness

The fiery Italian has carried that passion beyond his playing days and even sports a West Ham tattoo.

The much-loved forward was back in East London recently for a segment on Sky Sports Italia.

Di Canio visited Upton Park as it is now – blocks of flats – and was visibly emotional at what he finds, concluding that the club should never have left its spiritual home.

It is a sentiment a large section of supporters agree with.

Tricky Trev and Di Canio reunited

Football – and indeed most sport – is shut down for the foreseeable future due to the coronavirus pandemic.

That has made for a dearth in entertainment for bored fans.

So Hammers supporters will be delighted to know that Di Canio will be on talkSPORT from around 12.30pm today, being interviewed by another West Ham hero Sinclair.

 

The duo had a telepathic understanding on the pitch. They combined for what is considered one of the greatest goals in Premier League history.

Passion and entertainment guaranteed

And Sinclair revealed on Twitter he will be interviewing ‘genius’ Di Canio live on talkSPORT.

Delighted to say we’ve got my good friend; the one and only Paolo Di Canio on a call live from Italy tomorrow,” Sinclair said on Twitter.

“(On) talkSPORT at 12:30(pm) …. youngsters spare 7 minutes 11 secs and watch his West Ham goals on YouTube #genius.”
Di Canio, like the rest of Italy, is in lockdown as a result of the coronavirus.
So this is something to look forward to for him and Hammers fans. Emotion, passion and entertainment guaranteed.
