West Ham United have today appointed Dmitri Halajko as Academy Under-23 Lead Coach. 

The 39-year-old joins the club from Leicester City, where he spent over two years, and West Ham United Academy Manager Ricky Martin is delighted with the appointment. He told whufc.com: “I am really pleased that Dmitri has agreed to join us and it’s a real coup to have appointed someone of his experience and ability.

“I have seen at first hand his quality and talent as a coach, both in sessions on the training pitch and working with players individually on their development programmes.

West Ham fan for as long as I can remember. I was flukey enough to watch The Irons beat Bury 10-0 in my first ever game . . . True to form, West Ham then went out and signed their central defender 😬
