Paolo Di Canio has admitted that his career at West Ham is over after launching another verbal tirade at manager Glenn Roeder.

The Italian striker has repeatedly complained that the club had no intention of offering him a new contract, despite hinting that a deal may be in the offing.

“They told me they would renegotiate my contract in January but now I’m told I will have to wait,” said Di Canio.

“What has happened? Nothing. Even if I scored 50 goals for West Ham, they would not want me.

“Quite clearly they have made up their minds they do not want to keep me.

“But I’ll have a contract next season because 10 clubs want to sign me.”

Meanwhile, Di Canio has accused Roeder of lying after he was substituted at The Hawthorns.

“I said the truth,’ said Di Cani. ‘He must agree with me because he has not contacted me.”

Di Canio has not spoken to Roeder since being taken off in the crucial relegation clash with West Brom on 23 February.
