Kaveh Solhekol drops major David Moyes sack update, West Ham United talks set

West Ham United want David Moyes to remain as their manager for the 2023/24 season, according to Sky Sports reporter, Kaveh Solhekol.

Speculation has been rife during the 2022/23 campaign with many reports claiming the Hammers were looking to sack Moyes.

However, Solhekol has revealed that talks are set to take place with the Scot about his plans for next season when West Ham’s Premier League and European commitments are tied up (Sky Sports, 13 May).

It’s understood if Moyes leaves it will be his decision with the club eager for him to stay, particularly if they can avoid relegation.


The board are clearly adamant about sticking by their man. They’ve done so through thick and thin during the 2022/23 season and are priding themselves on being resolute through tough times. We all know the Scot has been on the brink on a number of occasions.

Had West Ham lost to Nottingham Forest at home, he would’ve been sacked. Moyes has managed to deliver when it matters. However, we all know the style of football is what holds him back. His pragmatic methods work, but considering the investment last summer, the frustration from the fans is fair.

The likes of Lucas Paqueta and Gianluca Scamacca shouldn’t be playing in a side who are happy to camp inside their own box and absorb pressure. The same can be said for Declan Rice, who now looks destined to depart in the summer.

If the board do stick by Moyes for one more season, then they must be prepared to face flack from the fanbase if West Ham endure another stuttering campaign under the Scot.
