Fans of West Ham have been reacting to Trevor Sinclair’s post on Twitter, in which the 47-year-old reflects on Paolo Di Canio’s sensational strike against Wimbledon.

In his post, Sinclair quote-tweets footage uploaded by West Ham which shows an animation of the Italian’s strike for West Ham against Wimbledon, while stating: “Special special man and what a goal. Thoughts with him, his family and the whole of Italy at this difficult time.”

To kick off this quiz on the goings-on at the London Stadium last week, according to Claret and Hugh, what is the supposed 'age ceiling' that David Moyes has set for signings?

In reaction, fans of West Ham have flocked to share their opinion on the footage and Sinclair’s comments, with many complimenting the cross that led to the goal, which was made by Sinclair, while others have stated they cannot believe that 20 years have passed since Di Canio’s strike.

What do we think?

Sinclair made 194 appearances for the Hammers over his time at the club, scoring 38 goals and providing 18 assists, the most famous of which is likely the cross for Di Canio’s legendary goal.

Even though 20 years have now past since the strike, it remains clear from their comments that West Ham fans still hold Trevor Sinclair in incredibly high regard, and he will always be remembered as the player who set-up the Italian’s volley.
