Sheingham reveals Allardyce approach


sheriTeddy Sheringham looks all set to take up his widely reported job as West Ham United striker coach.

After suggestions that Les Ferdinand was being lined up – which the former England striker denied on ClaretandHugh – Sheri has admitted he’s been approached.

Speaking to he said: “I spoke to Sam and asked for a few days to think it over. It certainly appeals.

“The job is on a part-time basis, a couple of days a week and I’ll be on the bench for home games.

“The club is not far from me and one for which I have a lot of affection. I really enjoyed my time there.

“It is also a chance for me to experience the coaching side of the game, something I have never really done before. I would enjoy working with the front players.”

Sheringham is going to Ireland today to get his coaching badges on a two-week course.
