Sullivan: “Steidten key to Hammers plans”

Tim Steidten. . . a key player in future plans

West Ham’s move to appoint Tim Steidten as the club’s technical director is one of the best West Ham moves in many years!

It came as something of a surprise when it was first revealed and in the meantime the co chair David Sullivan – who led the search for the right man – has explained the point of it all.

He told the official site: “Our goal when we became custodians of West Ham United and moved to London Stadium was to bring silverware to this incredible Club and to regularly compete in European football.

We’ve enjoyed some fantastic times in recent seasons, and we aim to continue to grow and evolve across all areas of the Club.

Tim’s appointment is key to our wider plans to drive our football strategy forward. We are delighted to welcome such a well-respected name in the game to the club.”

The new man will  be responsible for the club’s overarching player recruitment strategy and scouting department, working closely with manager David Moyes and Sporting Director Mark Noble.

The Technical Director role comes at a key moment in West Ham United’s history, with the Hammers’ victory in the UEFA Europa Conference League earlier this month securing a third successive season in European competition.
