Clyde Best - It is a Magnificent New Stadium
West Ham United legend Clyde Best has no doubts that the big move into London Stadium will help the Club challenge at the highest level over the next few years and is predicting a big future for the Hammers.
Best will always be remembered for becoming a pioneer in the English game after he overcame discrimination from the terraces and emerged as the first black striking hero.
The talented forward, who arrived from Bermuda back in 1969, enjoyed a memorable spell when he made 221 appearances for the east London Club and scored 58 goals.
Best was recently back in England and made his first visit to London Stadium for the games against Burnley and Hull and says it would have been a dream for him to play at the Hammers magnificent new home.
There have been some hurdles to overcome following the big move, but Best has no doubts that it will take the Club onto the next level and help West Ham challenge the elite clubs in the top flight.
Best said: “It is a magnificent new Stadium and just unbelievable. I would loved to have played in an arena like this. Words cannot explain how nice it looks and hopefully we can make it into a fortress.
“When I played I used to love playing in front of the big crowds and I am sure it is the same for the players now.
“When we used to play at the Boleyn Ground the support was fantastic and with 60,000 fans now inside London Stadium I am sure it will be just as good.
“The West Ham fans are among the best in the country and they can play a big part in helping the team to do well.
“I think West Ham will be able to compete with the big teams now and we need to concentrate on getting the job done.
“We proved last year that we could compete with the big teams and if we continue to show the same attitude we have got all the ability.”
