Italian midfielder Paolo Di Canio became a West Ham legend after joining Sheffield Wednesday in January 1999. The Premier League is the most popular football league in the world, and the transition of the scandalous football player immediately aroused increased interest in the Hammers. This interest has not dried up even years later, when many bets are made on West Ham matches. Of course, bettors at the same time focus on bookmakers that use a reward system. You can always see the rating of bookmakers with bonuses on the RB website.
Di Canio arrived in London with a tarnished reputation, dropping referee Paul Alcock to the pitch after he was sent off against Arsenal. The Italian did not play for Sheffield again after that, but Harry Redknapp took the midfielder to West Ham after he had served his suspension. And Di Canio had a huge impact on his new team.
He scored five goals in 13 games for the Hammers in the last months of the 1999/00 season and then scored 18 goals in the following campaign.
There were very few players who made such a big impact on West Ham as quickly as Di Canio did. In total, he played four seasons for West Ham.
