West Ham United 'inundated' with manager requests as pressure mounts on David Moyes
West Ham United’s board have been “inundated” with requests from out-of-work managers as the pressure begins to mount on David Moyes, according to 90min.
It’s understood the board are standing by Moyes, but have indicated to the Scot results must turn around quickly if he wishes to hold onto his job.
90min report (15 November) the board have been sent proposals from managers and coaches expressing their desire to talk to the club.
It’s been suggested many of these managers and coaches have previously worked on the continent.
Time is ticking
The World Cup break has come at an excellent time for the West Ham boss, who was the subject of plenty of vitriol from the fans in attendance at the London Stadium for his side’s latest defeat to Leicester City.

He simply has to find a way to get this team firing again after what has been a hugely disappointing season to date. With over £150million spent on players, there was an expectation for Moyes to really kick on from the Hammers’ Europa League semi-final appearance last season.
There are many who believe the West Ham boss may well have taken this group of players as far as he can, with potentially a more attack-minded coach being required at the London Stadium. This group of players have far too much talent to be sitting back looking to catch teams on the counter-attack.
With the break now upon us, it appears he will be in charge for the Hammers’ next Premier League game, and with January also fast approaching, it’s imperative he hits the ground running.
