David Moyes West Ham United sack update as 'impossible' scenario emerges

West Ham United are set to let David Moyes decide his own future if the Hammers win the Europa Conference League, according to the Daily Mail.

The Hammers booked their place in the final with a 3-1 aggregate win over AZ Alkmaar on Thursday evening (18 May).

The Mail claim (19 May) the Hammers have been profiling other candidates for a number of months in anticipation of the Scot departing.

Marco Silva, Graham Potter, Brendan Rodgers and Paulo Fonseca are among the managers West Ham have considered. It’s understood sources from inside the London Stadium feel it’s “impossible” for the club to sack Moyes if they win the Conference League.

Chairman David Sullivan will hold talks with Moyes at the end of the season regardless of the outcome of their clash against Fiorentina.


It feels as if the board are being rather non-commital when it comes to the Scot’s future. If West Ham do win the Conference League, it will be hard to relieve him from his duties. Most people will be understanding of that. However, some of the performances this season have been subpar.

On more than one occasion the West Ham boss has come back from the brink of being sacked. He’s done so much for the club over the past four years, so there will be an element of sentiment from the board. But, if next season does take a turn for the worst, the London Stadium’s patience will be thin.

The poor performances this season mean Moyes will be on thin ice from the first kick of the new season. Bringing a new boss in could give the players some fresh ideas and motivation. Nonetheless, it promises to be an intriguing summer at the London Stadium in more ways than one.
