West Ham will keep David Moyes despite Man United approach - Frank McAvennie

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 has been working wonders at West Ham over the past two seasons and he is starting to gain interest from other Premier League clubs.

The Scot was the subject of an approach from Manchester United to be their new manager recently but the Hammers board rejected any talks over his position [Global 247 News].

Moyes’ position is perhaps one of the safest in the entire top division with the club fighting for Champions League football in both domestic and continental competitions.

Ex-Irons striker Frank McAvennie doesn’t believe that the boss would leave his post at the London Stadium to return to Old Trafford where he was sacked in 2014 having taken over from Sir Alex Ferguson.

“Manchester United are one of the biggest clubs in the world,” McAvennie said to West Ham Zone. “They’ve lost their way a bit recently.

“I think they should have kept David Moyes a bit longer and I hate to see it because he could have been the right manager for the job if they gave him enough time.

“I wouldn’t be surprised if he went back because he was sacked by West Ham and came back but I think he’s enjoying the journey West Ham are on at the moment.”

Moyes’ men picked up another three points yesterday as they ran out 2-1 winners against Frank Lampard’s Everton on home turf.

They now face a tough two-legged match against Lyon for a place in the Europa League semi-finals with Barcelona potentially waiting to face the winner in the last four.

In other West Ham news, Harry Redknapp has been draping Moyes in praise too in his latest column.
