Di Canio could be Hammers candidate

West Ham legend Paolo Di Canio will return to Upton Park for the visit of Wigan Athletic on Saturday - just at the time the club's fans are calling for their icon to return to rescue the team from the bottom of the Premier League.

• Time running out for Grant

Di Canio, who became a cult hero during his four years with the Hammers, is visiting the hospitality suite named in his honour at the Boleyn Ground, but there is a strong possibility that he could soon be moving into the stadium's dugout to be a part of the staff, with assistant Zeljko Petrovic on his way out of Upton Park.

However, a West Ham insider told ESPNsoccernet: "The name of Di Canio has been mentioned, but he has no coaching experience whatsoever. The fans might want Di Canio, but this might not be the right way to go. They need a defensive coach and a coach who specialises in free-kicks.

"Most of all they need to sign some top quality players in January. They spent £8 million in the summer, and that is not enough."

Current West Ham boss Avram Grant has just three games left to persuade the board not to sack him before Christmas, a run of matches that begins against Wigan.

At Anfield, Hammers fans started to walk out before half time with the team 3-0 down, and those who stayed called for former striker Di Canio to return.
