Yet another British manager is set to be overlooked for a fairly big Premier League job as West Ham are considering appointing David Moyes on a short-term contract.
Slaven Bilic’s future at the London Stadium is in significant doubt after a 4-1 defeat to Liverpool left them 17th in the Premier League table, one point clear of the relegation zone.
According to a number of outlets, Moyes ‘is in pole position to take over until the end of the season’.
Moyes, who did so well in his last relegation battle as a manager that he was sacked by Sunderland in the summer after guiding them to the bottom of the table, is considered ‘the best immediate option to shore up’ the club, claim the Daily Telegraph.
The most tempting aspect behind appointing Scotsman Moyes is that the Hammers would owe no compensation, the manager still being out of work.
Bleacher Report also report that Phil Neville could be appointed as part of Moyes’ backroom staff.
Sam Allardyce will be devastated by the news.
