Dharmesh Sheth believes that the West Ham board are set to make a “divisive” decision in the near future.
In the Premier League era, there has been no West Ham manager more successful than David Moyes. He is well on track to bring the Hammers their fourth consecutive season of European football, not to mention he won them their first major trophy since 1980.
Until recently though, the board had faced mounting pressure to sack the Scotsman, but their recent form has turned the situation on its head.
After his 2-0 win over Arsenal, Moyes was questioned on his expiring contract to which he seemed confident there would be no issues with extending his stay in East London. “We are getting ready to talk. We will get it done. I don’t see many problems about it.”
Since then, it has been revealed that the Irons are set to offer him a two-and-a-half-year contract, and our good friend Dharmesh Sheth was able to provide some more details on the situation to GIVEMESPORT, as he hinted at it being the right decision.
“I think he seems really relaxed about the situation,” Dharmesh confirmed. “We think it’s going to be a two-and-a-half-year deal that he will sign and it’s such a divisive subject when you speak to West Ham United fans, because on the one hand, what more can David Moyes do.”
“He came into the club avoided relegation with West Ham United and then got them into European football three seasons in a row. Got them into the semi-finals of the Europa League, won the Europa Conference League, their first trophy of any measure in 43 years, and then that obviously qualifies them for the Europa League again.”
“He’s won the group that West Ham United were in this season, so he’s bypassed that playoff phase where they would have had to play a team coming down from the Champions League, so they’re straight into the last 16 of the Europa League as well,” he concluded.
It really would be hard to imagine a world where Moyes is not given a new contract given his side’s start to the season. He has just led our Irons to their best first-half of a Premier League season and, even if it is not always the most attractive to watch, success is always going to be king. We all want to see this club succeed and right now there is surely nobody who could be doing a better job than David Moyes currently is.
