David Moyes leaves West Ham United

David Moyes leaves West Ham United

West Ham intend to appoint a new manager within the next 10 days after the club decided against extending the contract of former Manchester United boss David Moyes.

11 - years in charge at Everton, from 2002 to 2013, longer than in all his other managerial jobs combined.

West Ham's joint-chairman David Sullivan explained the decision for West Ham and Moyes going their separate ways.

3 - the Scot has been named LMA manager of the year on three occasions, in 2003, 2005 and 2009 during his reign at Everton, in which he also won 10 manager of the month awards.

Moyes had to work in a hard atmosphere at the London Stadium, West Ham's unpopular new home since they left Upton Park in 2016.

Moyes's assistants Alan Irvine, Stuart Pearce and Billy McKinlay have also left the London Stadium.

Former Everton and Manchester United boss Moyes was appointed until the end of this season last November, following a awful start to the campaign under predecessor Slaven Bilic.

'Throughout his time here, David has carried himself with dignity and honesty and we have all found him to be a pleasure to work with. They deserve great respect for the job they have done and they leave the Club with our best wishes.

However, despite keeping West Ham safe, Sullivan said Moyes was only regarded as a short-term fix.

'Having taken stock of the situation and reflected now the campaign is complete, we feel that it is right to move in a different direction. "We aim to appoint a high-calibre figure who we feel will lead the club into an exciting future".

Newcastle United manager Rafael Benitez is thought to be a possible replacement for Moyes at 6/1, but after him there is a significant drop-off.

Allardyce arrived at Everton in November and still had 12 months to run on his contract with the Toffees, with Big Sam dragging Everton out of a relegation battle (Ronald Koeman was sacked in October) and into eighth place in the table but a late charge for a Europa League spot faltered.
