The 33-year-old Brazilian arrived at Upton Park on a free transfer last month and he made his debut against Crystal Palace last weekend.
The former Paris Saint-Germain winger was unable to prevent his new side from losing 3-1, but he did come close to scoring in his 29-minute cameo, and he will be hoping to go one better when the Hammers face Chelsea this evening.
“Training has been good,” Nene said. “Every day I feel better and the intensity is coming back with each session.”
At his best West Ham’s new signing can be a highly effective attacker, as his 48 goals and 50 assists for PSG testify.
In total, Nene has scored 110 goals and provided 77 assists in his club career and West Ham manager Sam Allardyce will be hoping he can add to those tallies in the weeks ahead.
The Hammers started the season brilliantly but their form has tailed off in recent times, as they have slipped to ninth in the table, without a win in their last six matches in all competitions.
But the good news is that Nene is working his way back to form, and another hero could yet arise to join the likes of Cheikhou Kouyate and Diafra Sakho this season.
