Hammers confirm Moyes’ exit

West Ham United have confirmed that manager, David Moyes will leave the club when his contract expires at the end of the season.

The Scotsman departs the London Stadium by mutual consent after a four and half year stint at the club, during which he led the club to UEFA Europa Conference success as well as stabilising the Esat Londoners and overseeing regular top-half finishes in the Premier League.

Former Wolverhampton Wanderers, Sevilla and Real Madrid boss, Julen Lopetegui appears most likely to replace the Scotsman at the London Stadium. Speaking to www.whufc.com, Moyes said: “I have enjoyed four and a half brilliant years at West Ham, and the Club is in a stronger position than when I returned back in 2019.

“When I joined West Ham for a second time, the club was one place above the relegation zone, and it has been a terrific journey to have achieved three consecutive seasons in Europe.

“After leading the club to safety, we guided the team to finishes of 6th and 7th in the Premier League, and I was delighted when we won the Europa Conference League title last June – the club’s first major trophy in 43 years.

“I would like to thank all the players for their support, and all the success they have achieved, over the last four and a half years.

“I have really enjoyed working with everyone at West Ham, and I would like to thank the board for giving me the opportunity to manage this great club.

“I wish my eventual successor, the directors, the players, the staff, the fans, and everybody at West Ham, all the very best for the future.”
