      West Ham United have officially announced the appointment of Julen Lopetegui as the club's new head coach.

      The former Wolverhampton Wanderers manager replaces David Moyes who left the club by 'mutual consent' after lifting the Europa Conference League with the Hammers last season.

      "I feel very happy, first of all, to be able to be part of the future of this big Club," Lopetegui said about his appointment. "We will try to put our stamp on the Club.

      "I feel that we have a fantastic platform. I think the last few years have been very good years to have this base, of course, but my ambition as a coach is always to be better and better, to achieve more and bigger aims and to encourage and improve the players, the team, and to compete because football is about this – to compete. We are very ambitious about this.

      "I am where I want to be. I am here because I want to be here and for us, it was a fantastic day when we closed our agreement here because our commitment is 100 per cent to be here. We had other opportunities but I am very happy that West Ham chose me because I chose West Ham too, so we are really happy about this.

      "We came here with the idea and the thought to make a big, big noise. That's why we came here, and we are excited by this challenge. Of course, we are going to do our best to help the Club and the team to achieve to achieve the best level and to achieve our aims. I assure the fans that they are going to be key in all our achievements."

      Lopetegui joins a list of new appointments to the club's backroom staff with Pablo Sanz (Assistant Head Coach), Oscar Caro (Head of Performance & Assistant Coach), Juan Vicente Peinado (Head of Analysis & Assistant Coach), Borja De Alba (Fitness Coach), and Edu Rubio (Technical Coach) all also joining.

      Lopetegui began his managerial career with Porto before also coaching Spain, Real Madrid, and Sevilla. The Spaniard joined Wolves midway through the 2022/23 season and won 10 of his 27 games in charge.
