West Ham hopes of landing 30-year-old increase after Fabio Paratici resignation

Tottenham’s Director of Football, Fabio Paratici, has resigned from his position, and this may give West Ham an advantage in the race to sign their managerial target, Will Still, writes the HammerNews.

The 30-year-old coach is reportedly being pursued by both Tottenham and West Ham, and Paratici’s departure from Spurs could make it easier for the Hammers to secure Still’s services. It’s understood that both London clubs are competing for the Reims coach’s signature this summer, and Paratici is believed to have already met with him in Switzerland.

Still, who led Reims to an 18-game unbeaten run in Ligue 1, is a fan of West Ham and would be an ideal appointment for the club. He has an intense approach to training sessions that translates to his team’s performance on the pitch, and prefers a flexible 4-2-3-1 system that builds up from the back, but also allows for counter-attacking. Many pundits have described Still’s success with Reims as “unbelievable.”
