Pundit shares if David Moyes should be worried about West Ham United future after Thomas Tuchel sacking
We’re delighted to welcome former West Ham United striker Frank McAvennie as our exclusive columnist. Each week he’ll be giving his views on the biggest talking points at the London Stadium…
David Moyes should be worried about his West Ham future after Thomas Tuchel was sacked by Chelsea, but Frank McAvennie doesn’t think he’s under pressure.
The Hammers have picked up just one win from their first six Premier League games of the season and currently sit in the relegation zone despite spending in excess of £150m on eight new players this summer.
But despite winning the Champions League two seasons ago and then spending a world record amount in a single window, Tuchel was sacked by Chelsea’s owners last week and while McAvennie feels that Moyes has enough credit in the bank to be safe for now he suggested he should be a bit worried.
“I wouldn’t think so,” he told West Ham Zone. “They’ve done it before, so I don’t think so.
“He’s got points in the bank, hasn’t he David, so. Saying that though, Tuchel won the Champions League and the Super Cup so maybe he should be worried.
“No, listen. David has been going through a spell and it is what it is now. Some of the players are off form. Soucek’s off form, Bowen, they’ve brought a lot of players in.
“I would give some of the new players a run and try it, you know. They don’t play with two up front anymore but at home he should try it. I think he should.
“Me, I’m a striker, so I would play Antonio and the boy Scamacaa. I’d play the two of them. Because Antonio can run and Scamacca can head, and vice versa.
“He’s got to do something. I don’t think we’re good enough to just sit back.”
West Ham return to Premier League action this weekend when they take on Everton at Goodison Park on Sunday afternoon, with Moyes returning to his former stomping ground looking to kickstart West Ham’s season.
