Moyes the biggest loser of any top flight manager

David Moyes is the biggest loser of any top flight manager following the Hammers’ defeat at Manchester United last weekend.

Hammers fan Nigel Kahn recently revealed on his own website that he was the most successful Irons boss statistically but over the course of his career he is No 1 loser! The Old Trafford defeat saw him with 239 defeats to his name.

However, we need to remind ourselves that he has been in the game a long time as a manager although the longest is Roy Hodgson at 76 years of age

And the Crystal Palace boss is in sixth place with 177 losses to his name during his Premier League tenure, which has included stints at Fulham, West Brom and Liverpool.

This is in a similar field to Harry Redknapp, who has a 36.8 per cent win rate, and is the man who Moyes overtakes as the biggest loser.
