David Moyes West Ham culture shift 'deserves the most credit' says former West Ham winger
Former West Ham Winger Matt Jarvis believes David Moyes deserves the “most credit” for changing the culture and dynamic at the London Stadium.
Moyes returned to the club in 2019 for a second spell at the London Stadium when the club was 17th and one point above the relegation zone.
He has since taken the Irons to European qualification and a Europa League semi-final, and Jarvis believes Moyes is primarily responsible.
Jarvis told Sky Sports News [28 April, 08:20 am]: “David Moyes deserves the most credit.
“What he has done has been fantastic, he’s changed the dynamic and culture at the club.”
He added: “Every player knows their responsibilities, there are no egos and everyone fights for each other.”
David Moyes doesn’t just deserve credit for turning West Ham around, he deserves immense respect for turning his own career back in the right direction.
After leaving Everton to take the Manchester United job his career looked to have been on a downward trajectory.
A year-long spell at Real Sociedad and relegation at Sunderland, coupled with some unsavoury comments to a BBC journalist looked to have been a sucker punch to his managerial career.
However, the culture shift he has implemented at a crumbling West Ham United side has been remarkable.
The club was disillusioned when he took over, with fans unhappy with their new stadium and underwhelming transfer recruitment.
The Hammers are now known for their atmosphere at the London Stadium and have recruited superbly in recent years.
Thomas Soucek, Jarrod Bowen and Said Benrahma just to name a few.
Hammers fans have enjoyed life this season and David Moyes has to be top of the list of people to thank for it.
