Alessandro Diamanti 'regrets' West Ham United departure

Former West Ham United striker Alessandro Diamanti admits that he wishes he had prolonged his time at Upton Park.

Alessandro Diamanti has admitted that he should have stayed at West Ham United longer.

The 30-year-old joined the East Londoners in 2009, but after just a year in England he returned to his native Italy with Brescia.

"I had a wonderful experience in the Premier League and would recommend it to anyone," The Mirror quotes the now-Bologna striker as saying. "You get to work seriously and as a professional, but you are also free to live your own life. Perhaps the only regret of my career was leaving London."

Diamanti scored eight goals during his stint at Upton Park.
