Is Moyes on the Way Out

West Ham manager David Moyes could be set to leave the club after nearly three years of service, according to recent reports. The 60-year-old Scotsman led West Ham to European glory last season, as Jarrod Bowen scored a thrilling last-minute winner in Prague, ending a 43-year trophy drought for the Hammers.

Under Moyes' guidance, West Ham have seen an extraordinary turn around in their fortunes, with Moyes taking West Ham from almost certain relegation candidates to back-to-back-to-back European campaigns.

However despite his success, Moyes has seen a number of fans wanting him to depart the club (and for a number of reasons). Whether it be "boring football", "poor substitutions" or even so much as "not using youth", some fans have wanted Moyes out for years now.

The Scotsmans' West Ham contract runs out at the end of the 2023/24 season and, according to Daily Mail (via Sky Sports), is expected to leave his position as West Ham manager. There is currently no new offer for Moyes to continue his time in East London.

There has even been speculation that Moyes plans to retire following his expired contract, but these rumours have been proven false by Moyes himself, as he told Sky Sports, "I’m not in a hurry to stop managing, that’s for sure."

According to the trusted Ex-WHU Employee, West Ham will make a decision regarding David Moyes at the end of the season that suits both parties.

Following a change in leadership at the club, it is reported that West Ham will hire a head coach with less of a say on transfers, with the responsibility shifting fully onto the likes of Tim Steidten and Mark Noble who work in the transfer and scouting department of the club. Sky Sports reporter Dharmesh Sheth helped clarify in an interview with GIVEMESPORT, saying;

"If he is not to remain at West Ham United, I would expect the next manager to come in to be more of the head coach, and probably less control over the recruitment than Moyes has enjoyed over the past few years.

"But I think that that would be a particular kind of manager who would be used to working in that situation whereby they have a technical director who picks the players, and the main role for the boss is not managing, but rather is the coaching. So they would effectively be the head coach rather than the manager."

"So I would expect that to be the next kind of appointment because we’ve said this many times, it’s so much easier to dismiss a manager rather than get rid of 10 players who are on long-term contracts."
