Sheringham has said after the announcement was made” I’m very excited. Sam phoned me a week or so ago and asked me if I fancied it. It was far too good to resist really.
“Being a West Ham boy and coming from the area, it fits nicely in all that I’m about, what with working alongside Sam and knowing a few of the players as well.
“They’ve got a lot of respect for Sam, they speak very highly of him and to know that’s the case made me want to get involved.
“I know the environment, I know everything about West Ham, so it was just too good an opportunity to turn down.
