With Pochettino and Tuchel out of reach, Moyes clings to West Ham with no replacements available


David Moyes sticks to West Ham job

  • David Moyes in danger of being sacked after losing to Everton this weekend
  • It’s unlikely he’s still a manager if there’s a realistic top-tier replacement
  • New Sporting Director Mark Noble will play a pivotal role in this decision.
  • Ownership structures are in the spotlight following the death of David Gold

The irony that Mark Noble was involved in orchestrating David Moyes’ exit at West Ham has not been lost on those associated with London Stadium.

Noble just assumed a new role as sports director earlier this month, and now has a pivotal role that he may fire the man he played for four seasons.

The Hammers hero has developed a great relationship with Moyes and takes no pleasure in doing so. But business is business and West Ham are not looking for relegation.

In fact, Moyes’ position was under scrutiny even before Noble’s return. Last season’s climax will always be remembered for reaching the Europa League semi-finals, but behind the scenes concerns over domestic form grew.

The Hammers have won one of their last seven league games. They carried that form into the start of this campaign, winning one of their first seven league games.

There are mitigations. That said, his form on the continent continues to be excellent, with him winning all eight games in the European Conference League to advance to March’s round of 16.

But at that point the decision on whether Moyes will take charge was at a tipping point and this weekend’s loss to Everton would put him in danger of showing the door. is a testament to his relationship with Chairman David Sullivan.

Thomas Tuchel and Mauricio Pochettino to replace Moyes

But if there really was a chance of being replaced by someone seen as an upgrade, it’s unlikely that the 59-year-old will still be a director.

Ambitions to acquire a first-class coach to lead West Ham into the future remain strong, but one source described those ambitions as unrealistic.

Mauricio Pochettino and Thomas Tuchel are the obvious candidates, but why move to West Ham?

In any event, the duo’s earnings potential (having been paid nearly £10m a year for their previous job) would exceed Hammer’s budget.

Former Tottenham and Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo is also being discussed, but has been paid big by Al-Ittihad and Saudi Arabia.Moyes is said to be earning around £5 million a year. increase.

The club's ownership structure is in the spotlight following the death of David Gold (R)

The club’s ownership structure has been highlighted by the passing of David Gold (R).

The achievements of Marcelo Bielsa, Rafa Benitez and Paulo Fonseca have been defended but do little to excite fans or ease relegation fears. It’s all part of the puzzle, and there’s no clear strategy should Moyes leave.

Even if he survives, speculation about his future will continue.

The club’s ownership structure has been highlighted by the passing of co-chairman and majority shareholder David Gold.

Sources indicate that if the club’s second largest shareholder, Daniel Kretinski, initiates a takeover offer, he will appoint management himself.

No matter which direction Moise looks, her back seems to hit the wall.
