West Ham United: ExWHUemployee reveals David Moyes safe for now

|

Insider ExWHUemployee has revealed that West Ham United boss David Moyes is still being backed by the board despite poor recent displays.

Over the weekend, the Hammers fell to a disappointing 2-1 loss at home in the Premier League, and during the game, the manager was booed by ‘large sections’ of the crowd, most notably when he substituted Said Benrahma.

It has not been a great start to the league season for West Ham and they consequently sit in 15th, just two points above the relegation zone.

Such uninspiring form will no doubt leave many fans angered and may well see Moyes’ position come under considerable scrutiny in the near future. However, for now, it seems as though the board will keep their faith in the Scot.

Indeed, when speaking on The West Ham Way podcast, Ex explained: “This morning [Monday], I’ve been speaking to various people.

“Now, I know people that know people in the board, I know people in the board, and I know people that are in the board that aren’t your obvious names as well – so I’m able to obtain some information on this.

“But I got the information from the most important person, I guess. And what I’ve been given back is the quote, ‘we are solidly behind the manager’.

“So I said, is his future in doubt? Is there any question marks over him now? And the response I got was, ‘we are solidly behind the manager’.

“So, to me, unless I’m being spun a load of lies, which doesn’t often happen, I think the manager is here to stay, certainly for the foreseeable future. Obviously results-dependent, but he’s not [under] threat at the moment.”
