Julen Lopetegui

Crazy Lopetegui claim by German media

Some reports in the German media are incorrectly suggesting that West Ham might be having second thoughts about hiring Julen Lopetegui. The origin of these stories is anyone’s guess, but this particular claim seems quite odd.

According to Bild, Lopetegui isn’t the only managerial candidate being considered. They feature a substantial article on Edin Terzic, stating that the Borussia Dortmund manager is attracting interest from the Premier League, with the Hammers reportedly considering him.

Terzic’s previous stint at West Ham under Slaven Bilic could naturally fuel such speculation now and in the future, but at this stage, it’s incredibly unlikely. Even though Terzic could end this season with Champions League glory, Bild itself noted that he was nearly dismissed just before Christmas. It seems more like mischief-making to me and is about as accurate as yesterday’s erroneous report about Mohammed Kudus’s contract situation.

Considering Lopetegui has been actively working with director of football Tim Steidten to bring in new players for the preseason, the idea of changing course now—when so much groundwork has already been laid at West Ham—is as preposterous as it is improbable.

In short . . . it’s nonsense.
