West Ham's New Assistant Manager
Neil McDonald has been appointed West Ham's new assistant manager. McDonald was Allardyce's assistant at both Bolton Wanderers and Blackburn Rovers.
McDonald said of his new job,
"Sam asked me to come with him and it took me about two or three seconds to decide that I would. It's a fantastic, huge football club that needs to be in the Premier League and that's what we're here for - to get back up as soon as we can, in that first season if possible.
"We're really looking forward to the season. It's going to be a long season with lots of games compared to the Premier League, but we'll have the players prepared and ready to win as many games as possible and get into a position to get back into the Premier League."
