Vaz Te relishing Premier challenge

Published Add your comment

West Ham's Wembley matchwinner Ricardo Vaz Te is determined to make the most of his second chance.

The Portuguese winger was on the football scrapheap two years ago after being released by Bolton, but the Hammers' £500,000 January recruit looks like a bargain after scoring a dramatic late play-off final winner to sink Blackpool 2-1 and earn West Ham the estimated £90million promotion to the Barclays Premier League brings.

"I feel I have been blessed with a second chance in my career and I'm cherishing it," said Vaz Te. "The Premier League is another big step, a challenge. We must go there with the mentality that we are a Premier League side, not fighting for relegation. We are going to go there and give it our best."
