Academy GK coach sacked
https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-9173733/West-Ham-academy-goalkeeping-coach-Jerome-John-AXED-following-internal-investigation.html

West Ham have sacked academy goalkeeping coach Jerome John over accusations that he bought equipment with club money with the intention of selling it privately.

Sportsmail understands that the decision to terminate John's employment was taken following an internal investigation at the end of last year.

The matter surrounds the order of goalkeeping gloves on the club's budget. West Ham believe he intended to sell the gloves privately. John was suspended pending club enquiries before a decision was made to dismiss the coach.

It is understood West Ham carried out all appropriate and proper processes ahead of the decision to remove John. The coach declined to comment when contacted by Sportsmail. West Ham also declined to comment.

John was part of the Hammers' famous academy as a player before leaving the east London club as a 19-year-old. The goalkeeper had a distinguished non-league career with Enfield and Kingstonian before rejoining his boyhood club as a coach in 2007.

He was a popular member of staff behind the scenes, most recently working under head of academy goalkeeping Billy Lepine, but appears to have left under a cloud.

First-team manager David Moyes has introduced changes to the West Ham academy since his return to the club in 2019, but those alterations are not linked to John's departure.

IIRC, it was mental health problems, possible depression.

When I lived in Buckhurst Hill (High St, opposite the carvery), when I was doing my garden, I would often see Ludo, he had the house behind mine and he was often out pottering about or washing the cars. I did chat with him a few times, but he was very shy and quite a private man, but very polite and pleasant.

Did it ever come out why Ludo left the club? It was shrouded in mystery at the time.

No, but he would have been at home on here. He was one of the most amusing Walter Mitty characters I've ever met. Looked perfectly normal, until you had a chat. If you started talking about going on a ferry crossing to calais, he'd just mention that he has a captain's licence. If you mentioned a flight to Dublin, he'd tell you he is a qualified pilot. Used to crack me up.

Lucky he ain't getting done for theft from employer, curtails your job prospects somewhat. What a fucking peasant.
