Daprela ready for Hammers chance

BY foxsports • March 2, 2010

The 19-year-old Hammers left-back caught the eye in the FA Cup defeat against Arsenal in January but was left waiting for his league debut as an unnused substitute in last week's defeat at Manchester United. "I want to play in the Premier League, that is my goal," said Daprela, who is a member of the Switzerland Under-21 squad. "You have to take your opportunities when they come. I hope to get more games and show what I can do. We will see what the manager decides. "I can only show myself on the pitch and in training and then it's up to him. It is very different to go from the first team at Old Trafford to the reserves but that is what makes football."
