Moyes To End Second Stint With Hammers

After West Ham United have seen the departures of numerous First-Team coaches in recent years, they will now be looking for a new manager once the season ends on 19 May. It has been confirmed that David Moyes will not be signing a new contract in East London.

Following the team’s victory at Arsenal back on 28 December, it was believed that the current Hammers’ boss was close to extending his stay at the club and the following day, he stated in his pre-match news conference ahead of the first game of the New Year at home to Brighton and Hove Albion that terms were nearly finalised.

However, his stance changed slightly prior to the visit of Brentford on February 26; he said that he would wait until the end of the current campaign before he decides whether to commit his future to the Irons.

Moyes returned to West Ham for a second spell in December 2019, following the sacking of Manuel Pellegrini and he has achieved three top-half finishes, as well as helping the team qualify for European competition on three successive seasons.

Fans will always remember the Scotsman for claiming club’s first major trophy since their FA Cup success in 1980 and a first European success for fifty eight years when he masterminded a victory in the UEFA Europa Conference League final against Serie A side ACF Fiorentina.

Moyes will want to end his time in Stratford on a high when newly-promoted Luton Town make the journey there on Saturday afternoon.

Then he has the unenviable task of trying to stop Manchester City from claiming another title on the final day of the current season when they make the journey to The Etihad Stadium. Having said that, Josep Guardiola’s men are yet to suffer defeat at home this season and although the Hammers already have seven away wins to their name, they haven’t recorded a single victory on the road since the 2-1 success over Wolverhampton Wanderers back on April 6.

Details of the man to replace Moyes will be confirmed by this site as soon as they are available.
