There have been various news outlets and social media accounts linking Jose Mourinho with a move to West Ham, with ExWHUEmployee providing an update on the situation.

Our Hammers have endured a terribly disappointing campaign so far, which has seen the club thrown into a full scale relegation battle to remain in the Premier League.

There is also though the progress being made in the Europa Conference League, with West Ham on the cusp of a quarter final spot in the competition – however this hasn’t quietened the discontent from many who want to see changes made at the club.

Various managers have been linked as potential replacements for Moyes, should the Scot be shown the exit – although as reported by Ex this is highly unlikely to happen whilst this season still has games to be played.

One name in particular who has been linked in recent weeks is former Chelsea and Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho, who is currently plying his trade in Italy with Roma.

Speaking on The West Ham Way Podcast, our famed ITK advised that the Jose story is pure speculation, and that the club do not hold an interest in bringing the Portuguese boss to the London Stadium.

“There is no truth in the Jose rumours I can confirm,” stated Ex. “Firstly he would command such a ridiculously high wage which would break our structure.

”Also it’s felt he’s too controversial, having caused many problems at clubs he’s been with previously. Additionally the club believe his career is now on the decline.

“Like I have said, I think in future we want to look for younger managers who’s careers are on the up, with more modern and fresh ideas.

“Michael Carrick for instance fits that bill and is someone that the club admire.”
