 Julen Lopetegui Officially Announced as West Ham Head Coach | Buy West Ham United Tickets with 1BoxOffice

Julen Lopetegui has been officially confirmed as the new head coach of West Ham, succeeding David Moyes, who departed at the end of the season after a notable four-and-a-half-year tenure. Lopetegui, who previously managed Real Madrid, Sevilla, and the Spanish national team, takes on his new role starting July 1. This marks his return to football management after leaving Wolves just before the 2023/24 season began.

The 57-year-old Spanish coach steps into a position vacated by Moyes, who led West Ham to their first major trophy in 43 years by winning the Europa Conference League in 2023. Despite finishing ninth in the Premier League this past season, West Ham aims to regain their spot in European competitions under Lopetegui's guidance. Lopetegui brings a wealth of experience and success, including a UEFA Europa League title with Sevilla in 2020.

"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 and the team," Lopetegui expressed on West Ham's website. "We are very ambitious about this. I am where I want to be. I am here because I want to be here. We had other opportunities, but I am very happy that West Ham chose me because I chose West Ham too."

West Ham has not disclosed the length of Lopetegui's contract, but he is set to bring in a new backroom team. The club announced the departure of first-team coaches Billy McKinlay, Kevin Nolan, John Heitinga, and Henry Newman, though goalkeeper coach Xavi Valero remains. Lopetegui's new team includes 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).

Technical director Tim Steidten praised Lopetegui, stating, "Julen lives and breathes football. He thinks deeply about the game, is tactically astute, and has shown he can adapt to work in different leagues and countries. He has demonstrated outstanding qualities in each situation."

Lopetegui will join his new players for pre-season training in early July before leading the team on a tour of the United States, where they will face Wolves and Crystal Palace.
