West Ham new boy Simone Zaza needs more time to adjust to life in England and playing in the Premier League, according to his father.
The 25-year-old joined the Hammers from Juventus in the summer but has so far failed to make an impression at the Hammers and at the weekend boss Slaven Bilic went with Michail Antonio up front against Middlesbrough.
Zaza’s father, and agent, says the Italian International, who has yet to find the back of the net for West Ham, needs more time to settle before they see the best of him.
“I would say not good, it seems,” when asked about his son’s start to life in the Premier League by Tuttojuve.
“They [West Ham] have another way of playing, it’s not easy to settle in.
“The only thing I can say is that Simone has yet to acclimatise tactically.
“The movements are different, so he must figure out how to move as soon as possible.”
