Former West Ham and Newcastle manager Glenn Roeder has died at the age of 65.

A statement from the League Managers Association on Sunday said that he passed away after a long battle with a brain tumour.

Roeder managed at Gillingham, Watford, West Ham United, Newcastle United and Norwich City, and also served as a coach under Glenn Hoddle for the England national team.

Reacting to the news, LMA Chairman Howard Wilkinson paid tribute to Roeder.

“A cultured defender as a player, he managed with a studious style and was always generous with his time and ideas.

"Glenn was such an unassuming, kind gentleman who demonstrated lifelong dedication to the game.

"Not one to court headlines, his commitment and application to his work at all levels warrants special mention.

“Football has lost a great servant today and our sincere condolences go to Glenn’s family and friends.”

LMA Chief Executive Richard Bevan added;

“Glenn Roeder achieved so much throughout his lifelong career in the game.

"After retiring as a player, he became one of the country’s most respected coaches, working across all levels of the professional game, in senior and academy football, and acting as a trusted advisor to many coaches and players.

"At every club, he chose to develop new talent and to give opportunities to the younger players in his charge.

“He will be sorely missed by all of the LMA’s members and his colleagues from across the game.

"Our heartfelt thoughts are with Glenn’s wife Faith, his daughter Holly, his sons Will and Joe and all of Glenn’s family and friends at this difficult time."
