‘Another Backwards Step’ ‘Joke Ownership’ West Ham Fans Angered As Likely Replacement For Pellegrini Is Named

West Ham are likely to appoint former manager David Moyes if they opt to sack Manuel Pellegrini, according to the Times. The current Hammers boss has two games to save his job but the board are already looking at potential replacements.

Harry Redknapp has also been touted as a potential safe pair of hands, but the owners are likely to trust Moyes with the reins if Pellegrini is dispensed with. Supporters on Twitter feel the former Everton and Manchester United manager would be a poor appointment:

To be fair to Moyes, he did steady the ship after Slaven Bilic was sacked in 2017, but his brand of football is hardly likely to get the team challenging in the top half of the table.

During his first stint in charge, the Scot guided West Ham to a 13th place finish, winning eight of his 27 league games; a win percentage of just 29.6%. It’s telling that he hasn’t been in work since he moved on from the London Stadium in the summer of 2018.
