Another West Ham jolly in Europe


Another West Ham jolly in Europe

It has been reported by ExWHUEmployee that he believes that the Irons are close to finalising the pre-season fixtures with another trip to Europe on the cards

Despite the warm glow of European silverware,  our attention is now moving towards next season and how we will be shaping up with another European venture on the horizon with West Ham once again in the Europa League.

The pre-season period is set to start in a couple of weeks’ time, and ExWHUEmployee has advised that the club are close to finalising the fixtures ahead of the new season.

“West Ham have been negotiating their final preseason fixture which is due to take place on the 5th August,” revealed Ex

This fixture is historically reserved for a home tie labelled the Betway Cup. A number of European Teams have been spoken to. It is rumoured, although not officially confirmed yet, that West Ham will conclude their pre-season build up, before their first game away at Bournemouth on 12th August, with a trip to Germany to play Bayer Leverkusen which we explained here last week.

 Ex said: “The match is said to be hosted at the Bay Arena and will give the club some European practise ahead of the Europa League campaign.

Another interesting twist with this potential fixture is that the leading candidate for the football/technical director role is Tim Steidten who left Bayer Leverkusen in March, who is expected to be appointed within the next week although there was last minute talks with another candidate.

 “It is also rumoured that we could be about to confirm a fixture against Nice at the same time we play Stade Rennais on the 29th July, the squad would be divided between the two matches.”
