Report: Fonseca snubs West Ham

Reports from Portugal this afternoon suggest that Paulo Fonseca has turned down the chance deciding instead to renew his contract with Ukraine champions Shakhtar Donetsk.

The report on Ojogo.pt claims the Portuguese born manager has opted to extend his stay at Shakhtar with a new two-year contract.

Paulo Fonseca and his agent Jorge Mendes flew into Luton on Monday later meeting with David Sullivan for 75 minutes at his Essex mansion. If the news is true, questions will be asked whether the interview was some massive play by Fonseca and his agent to negotiate better terms with Shakhtar.

David Moyes ruled himself out of the West Ham job earlier today with an official announcement following on the club website. Those close to him claim that he was unhappy with the way he has been treated at the end of his contract.

  1. Good. now we can go for Guardiola. …. yawn

  2. Why do I get the impression that this is all going to go pear-shaped? I wouldn’t let David Sullivan run my bath.

  3. “It’s understood Moyes is unhappy with the way the situation has been dealt with and told those close to him he would not accept a return, should he be offered the opportunity”.

    Totally classless today and a new low for West Ham.

  4. Hmmmm i have a bad feeling about this. Will we regret turning Moyes down.

    We will see i quess.

  5. Great News Ralph Hasenhuettel the former RB Leipzig Manager just became available today!!!!! Get in there West Ham

  6. Here we go again. Sullivan will be damned either way. I have no time for the bloke but he can’t win. If he’d kept Moyes then most supporters would have gone mad citing lack of ambition, negative play etc etc, and now he searches for someone else we have the reality check that we’re not an appealing prospect and ultimately can’t really expect anyone better than Moyes anyway. Massive catch-22.

    • At last!
      Someone else says it as it is……….

      Sullivan will be trying to get the best manager possible ON LOAN……

  7. Although he is still 8/11 bookies favourite..

  8. If the facts have not been verified this headline is misleading.Was he offered the job and did he turn it down?

  9. I wanted a more exciting manager than Moyes, now he’s gone and there’s little chance of him returning I’m starting to wonder if we’ve made the right choice. I honestly can see us attracting a top manager.

  10. If its true about Moyes fair play to him, he did a good job, they should have interviewed him first before any of the others, it is highly unlikely these supposed big names will sign for us, might as well try and sign Jokanovic from Fulham,
