West Ham may consider installing a new manager when there is a 12-day gap in their fixture schedule next month, according to the Daily Telegraph.
Current Hammers boss Manuel Pellegrini retains the confidence of the board at the moment, but there are worries that the Chilean isn’t taking the club’s poor form seriously.
If things don’t improve over the next few games, the best opportunity for a new man to come in would be between the trip to Southampton on the 14th December and Crystal Palace on Boxing Day.
With the match against Liverpool postponed due to the European champions’ participation in the Club World Cup, it means the West Ham board will have some time to take stock of the managerial situation before the New Year.
If they then decided to sack Pellegrini during this period, the new manager would then have enough time to get his feet under the table before his first game in charge.
