Hammers: Klopp talk ‘nonsense’

West Ham vice-chairman Karren Brady says reports that the club have approached Jurgen Klopp to take over as manager are “nonsense”.Klopp has been linked with a number of Premier League clubs since it was confirmed that he was leaving Borussia Dortmund at the end of the season.Reports in the press on Tuesday morning hinted that the Hammers were among those to have spoken to him, but that is talk Brady has rejected out of hand.Speculation has also been swirling about Allardyce’s future at Upton Park, but Brady revealed no decisions have been made and they will not be broached until the end of the season.It is just nonsense,” she told Sky Sports. “Sam is the manager, we have talked to him about sitting down at the end of the season, which we will do.


What sort of money does he want to invest in players? What positions does he want? Those are the conversation you always have, typically, at the end of the season and we make an arrangement going forwards. That’s still our intention.I think we have, as a board, always made it clear that we sit down with Sam at the end of every season. We’ve done that since he has joined us and we’ve done that when his contract has run out before.So nothing has changed in that respect. I think our performances – there has been one or two recent ones that haven’t been great – overall have definitely improved.The team have done very well, we haven’t been able to get the results we wanted but the performances have been good.
