Moyes close to finding replacement


West Ham manager David Moyes is close to finding a replacement for Paul Nevin. The England coach and Hammers set-piece specialist recently left Moyes backroom team alongside Mark Warburton.

Nevin was a close ally of David Moyes, but departed to coach at Ligue 1 club RC Strasbourg. This has left a gaping hole in the clubs coaching set-up, which has yet to be filled.

Moyes close to finding replacement? Warburton and Nevin have recently left The London Stadium

Stuart Pearce and Alan Irvine have both resigned from coaching positions during recent seasons. Irvine is still employed in an advisory capacity but works from home in the North of England. As a result of the multiple exits, Moyes has been on the lookout for a new assistant.

Speaking after the 1-1 Premier League draw against Bournemouth, Moyes let it be known that an appointment is close. The manager informed attending reporters that a new appointment would be made soon. Moyes said: “We’re speaking to a couple of people this week, and looking to make a decision soon”.
