PL and Euro bosses – are these on Sullivan’s list?

So the guessing game on who will become the new Hammers boss reached new levels this evening when David Sullivan announcing the Board are extremely confident of appointing a high-calibre first-team manager, who has a proven record both in the Premier League and European football.

There’s a few candidates if we are to believe that and we have done a quick check on those who may fit the bill given the board will not let on any further than that.

So let’s take a  look at the few who can boast experience on both fronts:

Louis van Gaal: Managed Manchester United from 2014-16. Won his first trophy with the club  – the FA Cup – when beating Crystal Palace 2-1 after extra time.Two days later, Van Gaal and the Dutch members of his staff were sacked by the club. Age 66. Currently unemployed

Manu Pellegrini: Seeming unavailable given the Chinese season is now underway. Age 64. Currently manager of Hebei China Fortune.

Rafa Benitez: The long time West Ham favoured chosen son after Sullivan missed out to Real Madrid before appointing Slaven Bilic. Age 58 – currently Newcastle boss.

Carlo Ancelotti: The only manager to have won the Uefa Champions League three times and reached four finals (three finals and two victories ). He also won the FIFA Club World Cup twice, managing Managing Milan and Real.He is regarded as one of the best and most successful managers of all time. Age 58 – currently unemployed

Andre Villas Boas: Former Chelsea and Spurs boss who also became the youngest ever manager to win the European title with Porto where he won four trophies. Age 40. Currently unemployed.

Claudio Ranieri: Left Nantes today after gathering loads of PL and Euro experience as detailed on site earlier: Age 66 – currently unemployed.

  1. what about harry rekdnapp

  2. What about pards or curbs

  3. So if It’s not Fonseca or Benitez. Who would be most suited. Probably one of the Londoners either Ranieri or Ancelotti. I’d take either of them.

  4. Andre Villas Boas: Former Chelsea and Spurs boss who also became the youngest ever manager to be fired by 2 London clubs.
    .
    Ancelotti is probably the best on offer, but I don’t seriously believe he would bother with us; specially if he sees our squad.

  5. Arsene Wenger?

  6. We have one advantage over Everton. We can sweep up whoever doesn’t get the Arsenal job, or the Chelsea job come to think of it. They can come to us as a consolation prize and still get to experience life in the capital.

    • thats a point about Chelsea. They could be in line like Arsenal to get Unai, so even Conte could be free. I still don’t see any of the top boys wanting to boss our squad.

  7. My money is on the Tinker Man.

    I don’t think they will pay for/get either Benitez or Pellegrini. Ancelotti even less likely.

    So Tinker Man at 16-1 will do for me.

    Or Koeman, who doesn’t seem to be in the betting lists?

    • Koeman has a job,! manger of Dutch national team ,that’s why he’s not in the betting 😊

  8. Terry Westley…?

  9. Paco Jemez.
    Clarence Seedorf.
    Quique Sanchez Flores.

    Just joking…
