West Ham United boss Alan Curbishley is confident of his role at the club if a new technical director is appointed.
The Hammers are looking to recruit a new director with a broad overview.
"We're talking about new stadiums and training grounds and one person can't be running all that," Curbishley told BBC Radio 5 Live. "We want to push on and make the club stronger, but it's myself and the board that decides where we are going to go."
He added: "We're looking at bringing someone in who can have a look at the club from top to bottom and make suggestions."
