West Ham Technical Director Tim Steidten is happy with the now likely appointment of Julen Lopetegui as manager, it has been reported by ExWHUEmployee.

It was confirmed yesterday that David Moyes will be departing the club following the conclusion of this current season, having been at the helm in east London for 6 years, over 2 spells, having returned to the club in 2019.

Although Moyes has seen his popularity dip amongst large sections of the fanbase of late, there is no denying his overall impact has been a positive one, with the club securing our first major trophy in 43 years last season, when we captured the Europa Conference League title in Prague.

However the time has arrived for the club to part way with the Scot, and it now appears that former Spain, Real Madrid and Wolves manager Lopetegui will take over the hot seat, and our club insider ExWHUEmployee has advised that Steidten is fully behind the decision.

“Its now all but certain that Lopetegui will be the new manager of West Ham,” reported Ex on The West Ham Way Podcast.

“We understand that although others were considered and approached for the role, Lopetegui is one that has been given the seal of approval by Steidten, with the manager understood to be set to take on the Head Coach role, under the Steidten model.

“Indications are that Steidten is happy with the now very likely appointment.”

David Moyes is now set to get his farewell to the West Ham fans this Saturday when we host Luton Town at the London Stadium, Moyes’ final game at home as manager of the club.

Ex will keep fans fully up to date on the situation as it develops further on The West Ham Way Patreon.
