The 41-year-old will be assisted by Matthew Wells, who is a former Spurs youth player and steps up from coaching the Under-15s, the club announced on their official website.

O'M fallout with council

Marseille will not play their opening home game of the Ligue 1 season at the Stade Velodrome after a fallout with the local authorities.

OM have failed to reach an agreement with officials in Marseille over rent on the stadium and the opening home fixture against Montpellier on August 17 will now be played at the Stade de la Mosson.

West Ham looking for striker

West Ham co-chairman David Sullivan has confirmed the club are in the hunt for at least one new striker having lost Andy Carroll to injury.

We have to bring in another striker and we're working on it now to buy one, or loan one, or both.

You can never have enough strikers and really with Andy gone we haven't got enough. It was desperate last year... We probably made a mistake by putting all our eggs in one basket.

We can't start the season with the strikeforce we've got. I don't think it's good enough, there's not enough height in it and if we get another injury, in terms of quantity, it's insufficient, so we have to sign at least one more player.

Lampard to visit 9/11 memorial

Frank Lampard revealed he plans to visit the memorial dedicated to the victims of the September 11 terrorist attacks after sealing his move to MLS side New York City FC.

I categorically did not set out to insult anyone or behave badly in front of the Americans and this is an excellent chance to say that. I'm very sensitive to the issue and the tragedy.

I was naive and a young boy at the time. I was out on a day I shouldn't have been - I certainly wouldn't do it today. I've tried in the last 13 years at Chelsea to be not just a good footballer, but a good man off the pitch.

It's a huge memorial and I will certainly go there to pay my respects.
