West Ham’s Tim Steidten breaks silence on Liverpool ‘contact’ amid Xabi Alonso clue

West Ham United technical director Tim Steidten says he has not been ‘contacted’ by Liverpool..

Steidten, 44, was appointed by West Ham’s in July 2023, having previously worked for Bayer Leverkusen and Werder Bremen. Liverpool are reportedly keen to make him their new sporting director to help with the transition when Jurgen Klopp leaves the club.

There are also reports of a rift with David Moyes at West Ham over player transfers. But Steidten says he feels ‘very comfortable’ at the club.

When asked about the speculation linking him with a move to Anfield, he told Sky Germany: “I’ve heard that I am supposed to be on the list at Liverpool. It is one of the biggest clubs in the world, so it’s an honour.

“But so far nobody from LFC has contacted me yet. I generally feel very comfortable at West Ham. I quickly realised how intense this league is. Accordingly, we signed the right players in the last transfer windows. The squad is strong, so we can achieve our goals.

“I am looking forward to facing the next weeks and months until the end of the season. Of course, we are already planning the next window. What happens to the future, we will see.”

During his time at Leverkusen, Steidten appointed Xabi Alonso as the club’s new manager in October 2022. Alonso is believed to be the frontrunner to replace Klopp at Liverpool after the German confirmed he will be leaving the club at the end of the season.
