West Ham coach comments on Teddy Sheringham's impact at the club

West Ham Upton Park

The former striker has helped the Hammers' current front men find their form in front of goal.

West Ham United first-team coach Ian Hendon believes Teddy Sheringham's experience has helped him make a real difference at the club this season.

Sam Allardyce's side look a different outfit to the one that struggled in the Premier League last term - largely thanks to a new-found attacking impetus.

And Hendon believes new forward coach Sheringham has had a real impact in that department.

"I think all you need to do is look at the two lads upfront. Diafra's already scored five in the league and Enner's added a couple as well. So from that point of view you'd say definitely the new signings have been the biggest single difference," the first-team coach told West Ham's official website.

"Teddy's obviously getting the plaudits because the strikers are doing so well at the moment. He does a lot of finishing work with the players on a Thursday and Friday. At the moment the strikers are looking sharp so long may that continue. Teddy is obviously a very experienced player, he's played at the top level and the players certainly have a lot of respect for him."
