David Moyes has accepted that he may be under pressure at West Ham.
Reports in national newspapers have suggested that the Hammers boss is facing a vital next five games in the Premier League – against Wolves, Fulham, Southampton, Liverpool, and Bournemouth – and could well receive his P45 if results don’t improve.
We have confirmed that there is a caveat to the Hammers’ backing of Moyes, in that he needs to make the summer signings work if he is to keep hold of his job.
Moyes admits that he has to take the pressure on the chin as a Premier League manager, and insists the Irons have not been as bad as the results make out.
As it stands, they have only won one of their seven league games, and sit 18th ahead of the clash with Wolves, with four points to their name.
Speaking to reporters, as per Football.London, Moyes said: “We know what happens when you are losing games, that is part of the job and I accept that.
“I think we have done a lot of things, a couple of things haven’t gone for us. I’ve worked over 1,000 games or so as a manager, six months we were in the semi-finals of Europe, challenging for the top four or top five.
“What they want to see and what everyone wants to start to see is results and hopefully, they will start coming.”
