Moyes fate hangs in the balance

West Ham board have yet to decide on David Moyes fate this summer as his future hangs in the balance, but a big part of their decision will be related to a progression in the Europa Conference League.

Failure to get past Alkmaar would no doubt put more pressure on Moyes to write Matt Law for the Telegraph, and 6foot2 understands that the board are open-minded for their manager seeing out the final year of his contract. The board’s end-of-season review meeting will be a crucial time when the final decision is taken.

If Moyes does win the Europa Conference League and decides to see out his contract, he may have to swallow some pride with a lesser role in transfers.

The board want a more significant say in where their money is spent and wants to bring in a director of football; while the manager will undoubtedly have some final tick it would, it would be a lesser responsibility that he has enjoyed for the past two years, and he could decide it is a step backwards in his management career.

  1. I don’t think he’ll go, too easy for them to give him the last year on his contract to see how he does.
