Mark Noble to return to boyhood club West Ham as sporting director

Former West Ham captain Mark Noble will return to his boyhood club as sporting director. After 18 years with the club, Noble hung up his boots at the end of the last Premier League season. In the position that has been newly created, Noble will work together with the current board and manager David Moyes. David Moyes expressed his happiness to have Noble back at the club.

“I’m really happy to be coming back and can’t wait to get started,” former West Ham captain Mark Noble said. “I’d like to thank the club for giving me the opportunity – it’s a great honor for me to take up this role. I’ve spent the last 24 years as a player here, first in the academy and then in the first team, and obviously have deep knowledge and understanding of the club. The last two years, as my playing days began to naturally wind down, gave me a fantastic opportunity to really spend some time educating myself and gaining greater knowledge and understanding of the work that goes on behind the scenes. This club has made some fantastic strides forward in that period and I am really looking forward to coming back at such an exciting time.”

“I see it as a position that I can grow and develop in both personally and professionally. There are always difficult decisions to be made in football but along with my colleagues at the club, I will continue to put the best interests of West Ham United first,” he added. “The last two seasons have been a time of great progress, and I want to help us to continue moving forwards in the right direction. I believe in the ambition shown by the board and I am excited about helping to build on the success that has been delivered so far.”
