West Ham boss David Moyes has introduced his new-look backroom team as he looks to build on the excellent start made to the Premier League season.

Our Hammers currently sit in 4th place as we enter the 1st International break, having won 3 and drawn 1 of our opening 4 matches played – with the league champions Manchester City up next as we look to continue our positive start to the proceedings.

As revealed on The West Ham Way Patreon, both Henry Newman and Mark Robson have been promoted first team coaching staff under Moyes this season, with it now being confirmed also that John Heitinga, who was interim manager of Ajax and a former player of Moyes at Everton, has also joined the backroom team

Our club insider ExWHUEmployee has revealed that the club have been in dialogue with Heitinga for some time, with the former Dutch international providing insight to the club surrounding both Edson Alvarez and Mohammed Kudus, having worked with the pair at Ajax.

“The club spoke to him earlier in the season about the qualities of Alvarez and Kudus,” stated Ex on Patreon. “He had worked with them for the end of last season whilst being head coach at the Dutch giants and was the manager when we scouted the pair.

“This appointment was only confirmed in the last few days after he narrowly missed out on another job. Heitinga almost joined the club as a player in 2014.”

David Moyes is understandably delighted to have confirmed his coaching team for the season, with West Ham hoping to cement ourselves once again amongst the sides fighting for European qualification again.

“I would like to welcome John to West Ham United and also welcome Mark and Henry into the first-team group,” Moyes stated on the clubs Official Website.

“John is someone I have known for a long time. He has gained some very good experience since beginning his coaching career in the Ajax Academy and working his way up to their first-team. Mark and Henry are both already familiar to everyone here at the Club and have deserved the opportunity to step up within our structure.

“John, Mark and Henry will each bring experience in different areas and complement the strengths we already have in the coaching team alongside Billy, Kevin and Xavi. I look forward to working with them and building on the positive start we have made to the new season.”
