West Ham boss Sam Allardyce on his former coach’s appointment as Stevenage manager

West Ham United boss Sam Allardyce says Teddy Sheringham has been given a ‘great opportunity’ after being appointed the new Stevenage manager.

The former Hammers coach was installed as Graham Westley’s successor on Thursday, and speaking about losing his attacking coach Allardyce told the West Ham website: “It’s a great opportunity for Teddy. Probably getting involved at football at this club has given him that little bit of a spark.

“He’s been stimulated, he has enjoyed his time with us and we have enjoyed having him. That has created an opportunity for him to test his skills as a manager. All Teddy has to look forward is a lot of hard work and a lot of sleepless nights.”
