West Ham have made a managerial switch ahead of the upcoming Premier League campaign, appointing Julen Lopetegui.

The Spaniard comes in to replace David Moyes, who helped West Ham qualify for the Europa League before winning last season's Conference League with a 2-1 win against Fiorentina - their first major trophy since the 1980's.

Supporters have always been split on him, however, and with results declining towards the end of the campaign, it was mutually agreed that he'd leave East London at the end of his contract.

Ipswich Town boss Kieran McKenna was one of the names linked with the vacancy, but the Hammers have moved to appoint ex-Spain, Real Madrid and Wolves boss Lopetegui.

The 57-year-old won the Europa League with Sevilla back in 2019/20, beating Inter Milan 3-2. However, he was ironically knocked out of the competition by Moyes' West Ham in the round of 16 two seasons later.

Ipswich will soon discover when they're set to face Irons next season, with fixture release date set for June 18th. The London Stadium will be Town's nearest away game in 2024/25.
