40-year-old Premier League manager tipped to replace David Moyes if he’s sacked at West Ham

If David Moyes is sacked from his role as West Ham United manager, one Premier League boss in particular is being linked with replacing him at the London Stadium.

 

West Ham manager David Moyes is really feeling the heat right now, having guided his side to eight games without a win since the turn of the year, and the owners are said to be very unhappy with the recent performances from the team.

 

 

 

 

The Hammers have been in absolutely woeful form, both defensively and offensively. Sure, we’ve missed Lucas Paqueta and Mohammed Kudus during his AFCON exertions, but the whole team have looked nowhere near at the levels they need to be over the past seven weeks.

 

Moyes has a lot of work to do, if he is to turn things round. He claimed yesterday that a new contract is there waiting for him to sign, but his tone suggested that he may well be thinking about leaving the club.

 

And if that does end up happening, whether he leaves of his own accord or if he’s forced out, it seems as though one Premier League boss could be on the West Ham owners’ radar…

 

Premier League manager tipped to replace David Moyes if he’s sacked

 

 

 

“I think O’Neil has done a brilliant job so far, and it wouldn’t totally surprise me if West Ham did end up having to look back into the Premier League if that was the sort of manager that did interest them from the top flight,”

 

 

O’Neill was one of the three managers who I touted to replace Moyes right here on Hammers News last week.

 

The 40-year-old has worked absolute wonders at Molineux this season. Wolves are currently sitting in 11th spot in the table just three points adrift of seventh, and his side would be even further up the Premier League table, had they not had arguably the worst luck out of any team in the top flight this season.

 

O’Neill spent two years playing for West Ham just over a decade ago, and he’s a hugely popular figure in East London.

 

O’Neill deploys a high tempo, high energy brand of enthralling football, and his Wolves side really are a very exciting watch. The Beckenham-born manager embodies everything that being a West Ham manager means.

 

And if David Moyes does get sacked, I’d take the Wolves manager at West Ham all day long.
