Collison made over 100 appearances during his time for West Ham, scoring 11 times. He was also capped 15 times for his country Wales, however after suffering a horrible injury to his knee, combined with continuous rehabilitation, the promising 28-year-old midfielder had to hang his boots up before his time.
After his retirement, most will remember Collison has been working closely with both The Posh’s U21’s and U18’s in a managerial role, and according to The West Ham Way, there was also ‘interest from Arsenal in appointing him to a similar role but he wants to return to West Ham.’
Collison, who is keen to become a manager since his retirement will learn from one of the best in the business, academy manager & head of coaching and player development - Terry Westley.
