David Moyes was contemplative ahead of West Ham’s clash with Liverpool at The London Stadium, appearing relaxed during his pre-match press conference despite uncertainty about his future. His contract expires this summer, and after four and a half years, it is expected that he will leave the club.

West Ham are reportedly considering successors, having recently held discussions with Sporting CP manager Ruben Amorim and former Wolves and Real Madrid boss Julen Lopetegui. Moyes confirmed that any decision about his future would be made at the season’s end, emphasising, “I’ve not had any communication at all. That is because we’ve already decided amongst ourselves that we would talk at the end of the season.”

When asked about the managers linked to his job, Moyes admitted he hasn’t been following the rumours closely, saying, “I haven’t looked. I’m only getting told by people like you, or maybe people have phoned me up.”

Reflecting on his tenure, Moyes highlighted the stability he brought to West Ham, stating, “Stability was needed at West Ham…I think I am pretty good at that.” He recounted positive fan interactions and the significant victories under his management, acknowledging that while there have been low points, such as the recent game against Crystal Palace, the good moments often go unnoticed.

Listening to him, it was hard not to conclude they were the words of a man who knows his future is away from East London.

    I hope I can make sure that doesn’t happen in the future, moyes said, when talking about the way we lost to palace. Sounded like a man who still believes he’s got a future at West Ham. Would he have used the word future if he was just taking about the last two games of the season?
