West Ham Technical Director
The Times say West Ham have short-listed two candidates for the post of technical director and expect to make the appointment this month. The role will include scouting for players, transfers, work on the new stadium and training-ground projects.
One man it is unlikely to be is Giovanni Trapattoni. The former Italy manager has been linked with the West Ham post but the BBC say he is set to be unveiled as Republic of Ireland manager on Wednesday.
