Fonseca ends West Ham talks to sign Shakhtar deal
Shakhtar Donetsk coach Paulo Fonseca has ended talks with West Ham.
The Portuguese held talks with West Ham over the managerial vacancy at the London Stadium but has opted to stay with the Ukrainian champions.
Shakhtar president Rinat Akhmetov said: "Paulo Fonseca is at Shakhtar, and I'm delighted with that! We've signed a new contract for two years.
"Do you remember how two years ago, we invited Paulo to Shakhtar and everyone shouted: What will happen, what's gonna happen to Shakhtar now?! Now everything will go wrong with Shakhtar. Everything's wrong, there will be problems. We don't know what to expect.
"And what do we see? Two league titles, two Cups, one Super Cup and a brilliant Champions League campaign. This indicates that Shakhtar made the right decision two years ago by inviting Paulo and his assistants to the team."
