Watch: The video that has all West Ham fans buzzing with excitement

West Ham United Gate

It may be the international break, but a video doing the rounds online has West Ham United fans buzzing with excitement this week.

Hammers skipper Mark Noble will lead out his side against a West Ham All Stars squad in his testimonial on Easter Monday.

The 28-year-old midfielder has spent his entire career with the Hammers, having progressed through their youth season and into the first-team set-up.

Since making his debut in 2005, Noble has played 340 times for the East London side, and his dedication was rewarded at the beginning of the season when head coach Slaven Bilic named him captain.

The sold out testimonial will see the return of some much-loved former players to the Boleyn Ground for the last time before West Ham's big move to the 60,000 seater Olympic Stadium in the summer.

Legend returns

None more so than legend Paolo Di Canio who will lead the line for the "visiting" All Stars.

And the excitement ahead of the game has been ramped up after the club's official website posted a video message from Di Canio ahead of the big game.

The video, which was shared out by Noble on Twitter, shows Di Canio donning the claret and blue at home in Italy and he had a typically passionate message for Noble and the West Ham fans.

"Mark, it's a great honour and privilege for me," Di Canio told whufc.com.

"It is a great honour and privilege for me. You are giving me the chance to play with my old team-mates at the Boleyn Ground which is fantastic.

“You are also re-uniting me with my second family - the Claret and Blue fans. I cannot forget it and I cannot wait to join you and the rest of my family."

Di Canio then bursts into a rendition of Bubbles while doing the crossed Hammers sign and bids farewell saying: "Ciao."

Next top Upton Park... and both Di Canio and Hammers fans can't wait.
