Report claims Hammers coaches as living in fear


By Hughie Southon

West Ham’s backroom staff are living in fear of losing their jobs!

That’s according to the Mail who are claiming the coaches under Moyes believe they will be sacked if Sunday’s relegation showdown with Premier League bottom side Southampton ends in defeat.

So many stories are now emerging about dressing room unrest that it becomes totally impossible to ignore the fact that something does seem to be very wrong inside the club.

And despite the board refusing to sack the manager fans across virtually every forum are failing to understand the reasoning for that!

The Mail is the latest to claim that contacts close to the staff have revealed their concerns, particularly if supporters turn on the manager at the London Stadium this weekend.

And there are new worries that David Sullivan could be swayed into making the sacking decision as a result despite his apparent trust in the Scot.

West Ham boss David Moyes fears he may be sacked if they lose to Southampton on Sunday

If Bournemouth pick up a result against Fulham on Saturday, defeat by Southampton would leave West Ham bottom of the table, having finished seventh last season.
