West Ham: Insider shares why David Moyes hasn’t been sacked
West Ham insider Claret & Hugh has shared the real reason why manager David Moyes hasn’t been shown the door, despite mounting pressure.
The Lowdown: Irons embarrassed…
The Irons were truly embarrassed last weekend as European-chasing Brighton ran out 4-0 winners over them at the Amex.
Goals from Alexis Mac Allister, Joel Veltman, Kaoru Mitoma and Danny Welbeck capped off an afternoon to forget for Moyes and West Ham, who lie just two points off the Premier League relegation places.
Members of the media slammed performances from certain West Ham players but the pressure was well and truly back on Moyes after a real humbling.
The Latest: Insider makes Moyes claim…
Reports suggest that the Scotsman retains West Ham’s backing, which may be an unpopular decision, with insider C&H now sharing exactly why.
Making an eye-opening claim, they say the real reason Moyes remains in charge is because West Ham simply cannot find a suitable replacement.
It’s added that there are ‘very few alternatives’ and ‘very expensive’.
The Verdict: Keep faith or not?
So far, the likes of Rafael Benitez and Marcelo Bielsa have been linked in terms of free agent alternatives, but it appears they’re out-of-the-running going by this C&H update.
Moyes guided West Ham to successive European-qualification campaigns before this regrettable season, building serious credit in the bank, though it appears the former Everton boss has taken them as far as they can go.
The Hammers, despite spending £161 million last summer in a serious statement of intent, are flirting with a drop to the Championship – leaving little wonder supporters have become disillusioned.
Once a credible candidate does in fact become available, it may be time to say goodbye to Moyes, but until then they’re forced to keep faith.
