Boa bids farewell

Luis Boa Morte has wished West Ham the best of luck for their forthcoming Championship campaign.

KUMB.com revealed earlier in the week that the 32-year-old had parted company with West Ham with a year of his current contract remaining after he was informed that he was surplus to requirements.

But the Portuguese harbours no ill feelings towards his former club, with whom he spent four-and-a-half years having been signed by Alan Curbishley from Fulham for 5million in January 2007.

"I am sad to leave West Ham as I have made a lot of friends here," Boa Morte told whufc.com. "I wish all the best to my team-mates and for the club to get promoted.

"It is a sad day for me to leave playing football in England after 14 years [but] I am looking forward to a new challenge. It is never too late to try somewhere and something different.

"There are high and low memories - the low ones only make you stronger - now it is a fresh start for me. I would like to think people would have seen me always give everything for the team. I always tried to put my heart and head in for the team."
