David Moyes could be sacked as manager of West Ham United if they fail to win the Europa Conference League next week, according to The Guardian (2 June).

The Hammers are on the verge of ending a 43-year trophy drought when they face the Serie A club in Prague on Wednesday (7 June), with Moyes at the helm.

But confidence in the Scottish manager is dwindling after a poor Premier League campaign and the club could move to get rid of him if he fails to win the final.

“West Ham are giving fresh consideration to parting company with David Moyes, increasing the pressure on the manager before Wednesday’s Europa Conference League final against Fiorentina,” they wrote.

“In a sign of indecision at the club, it is understood confidence around Moyes staying has waned since the Premier League season ended.

“Sources have indicated that the Scot’s future could depend on West Ham winning a first major trophy in 43 years.”

Right decision

The whole season has been a bit of a shambles at the London Stadium, and winning the trophy is the only thing that should buy him more time.

The Premier League campaign was shocking and we only survived by the skin of our teeth in the end despite the huge amounts of quality in our squad.

The Europa Conference League was also a tournament where we have been one of the strongest teams involved fro the start and getting to the latter stages was undoubtedly the expectation for many.

Many fans have been clear that they’ve lost trust in Moyes and it seems as though it’s the right time for everyone to part ways and to go in a different direction.

With Moyes being linked to Celtic now too, it seems like a perfect out for everyone whether we win or lose the game, but letting him go out on his own sword after a win is far better optics.
