New candidate to replace Moyes emerges


Silva the new candidate to replace Moyes

There are emerging reports suggesting that Marco Silva could be a contender to replace David Moyes at West Ham, with the current manager facing mounting pressure.

Should Moyes depart at the end of the season, sources indicate that West Ham might look to appoint a manager already in the Premier League.

Thomas Tuchel, set to leave Bayern Munich this summer, is reportedly one option being considered by the Hammers. Additionally, technical director Tim Steidten is said to hold admiration for Paulo Fonseca of Lille and Arne Slot of Feyenoord.

I have to say that this is one of the better suggestions I’ve heard. I have liked Silva since his time at Hull and he has certainly become a more tactically refined coach in recent years. His work with Fulham on a shoestring budget has been most impressive.

I’d take Silva over Tuchel and Fonseca any day of the week. Whilst the Munich manager might have a high profile, he appears to have the habit of falling out with those he works with. I’m also less than convinced by his CV, which doesn’t hold up to scrutiny in my opinion.

Despite Moyes recent consecutive wins against Brentford and Everton, speculation surrounding the managers future persists. That being said, Moyes is certainly more stable in his position than he was two weeks ago.

If a decision on Moyes’ contract isn’t reached before it expires, it’s likely that rumours will continue until the end of the season. However the intensity of that speculation seems to rise and fall depending on results. I’d certainly expect the board to continue to identify candidates and if it turned out to be Silva, then I’d be okay with that.

    I agree, Gonzo – I think he would be a brilliant acquisition, and I would love to see what he could do with our squad and resources.
