No immediate move for Potter or Rodgers

West Ham are the only club in the bottom ten of the Premier League not to sack a manager after Brendan Rodgers lost his job yesterday with Leicester City making a statement.

Chelsea sacked a second manager this season by sacking Graham Potter after the West London side dropped to second half of the table in 11th place.

On paper two experienced Premier League managers are now available should West Ham decide to move for one of them but it would come at a price.

Both Rodgers and Potter were reported to earn £10m per season, twice of what David Moyes is said to be earning at West Ham,

Rodgers had a contract until the end of the 2024/205 season while Potter signed a three year extension in February keeping him contracted with Chelsea until 2030.

If either immediately take up new roles their compensation can be reduced or even ceased completely with some clubs deciding to carry on paying manager on the payroll instead of paying them off on the off chance they land a new role quickly.

Meanwhile David Moyes would cost around £5m to pay off now and £4m in the summer.

We are unlikely to any immediate moves by West Ham for either manager although Leicester City is rumoured to be interested in Graham Potter as a replacement.

When asking a Hammers club insider about the two managers and their likely next destinations the source was non committal by just saying  “Time will tell”
