The former Wolves manager replaces David Moyes, who left the London Stadium by “mutual consent” after his contract expired at the end of the Premier League season. 

The 57-year-old – who has previously managed Spain, Porto, Real Madrid, Sevilla and Wolves will officially join the club on July 1. He has been out of work since leaving Molineux at the start of the 2023/24 season.

“I feel that we have a fantastic platform,” Lopetegui said. 

“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 the best level and to achieve our aims. I assure the fans that they are going to be key in all our achievements.”
