Curbishley happy with new West Ham board

West Ham have reassured boss Alan Curbishley his position will not be affected by the recent boardroom reshuffle at the club.

Eggert Magnusson stepped aside as executive chairman this week as the club's billionaire owner, Bjorgolfur Gudmundsson, pledged to take more of an active role in the running of the club.

Curbishley has built a close bond with Magnusson since taking over at Upton Park in December last year, but he is unconcerned by the latest movements.

"I have been assured that nothing much has changed," said Curbishley.

"It was a bit like a blind date when I started working with Eggert, but we worked hard, and we have a good relationship.

"He will still be in the directors' box for our matches.

"I went out to dinner on Thursday with Eggert, he is at Upton Park every day, and we talk every day."
