Irons new boss: The French connection grows

FBL-FRA-LIGUE1-BASTIA-OMMarseilles boss Marco Bielsa is very back in the frame to become the next Irons boss.

The Argentinian boss is enjoying a highly successful season in the French Ligue and the club is currently sitting in third place – one point behind Lyon in second and two behind leaders PSG.

The team scored a fine 4-0 away win at RC Lens over the weekend as the Hammers continue to monitor the former Argentine and Chile national team chief.

The 59 year old has been on the Hammers list of candidates to replace Sam Allardyce at the end of the season for some weeks but ClaretandHugh has learned his ‘star’ is in the ascendancy right now.

We were told today: “He doesn’t fit the required criteria exactly in that he has no Premier League experience but he is doing a superb job in France and his track record is excellent.

“He keeps coming back onto the radar and it would be no surprise to see a formal inquiry made to speak with him.”

His  flamboyant personality has made him a favourite of the media in past years and he is a very demonstrative individual who wears his heart on his sleeve.

  1. Oh dear Hugh,you are coming across with more media invention.Why write these articles when Sam is going to sign a new contract.We have it on good authority from experts on here,lol 😉

  2. I think he is the one, David Sullivan went down to Marseille in January for a few days, was he sounding Bielsa out whilst there I wonder, cos he didn’t sign any players whilst there did he.

  3. Hope there is No Way David Sullivan considering renewing Sam’s contract, he has to show some backbone and over rule David Gold and anything Brady has to say.

  4. BFS is learning French for the next 2 years,
    Or am I on the wrong site and someone else is coming to play ?

  5. I bet the fellas never heard of west ham he will know nothing of our history or more importantly our opposition. C.O.Y.I.
