Julen Lopetegui

West Ham Set Sights on Lopetegui


West Ham United’s rollercoaster season is likely to see a change in management, with David Moyes‘ future at the club looking increasingly doubtful.

Moyes’ current contract expires at the end of the season, and despite claims of a renewal offer on the table, recent results have painted a bleak picture. A disappointing Europa League exit coupled with a heavy Premier League defeat to Crystal Palace has significantly impacted the mood around the London Stadium. With these performances, a change in leadership seems more likely than an extension for Moyes.

Anticipating Moyes’ departure, West Ham has reportedly wasted no time in finalising his successor. According to Italian publication Tutto Mercato, the Hammers have intensified negotiations with Julen Lopetegui, former manager of Wolverhampton Wanderers.

West Ham’s interest in Lopetegui seems serious. The report suggests they have tabled a three-year contract, signifying their confidence in the Spaniard’s ability to lead the club forward.

Lopetegui himself is no stranger to English football, having previously managed Wolverhampton Wanderers. The report claims he is open to returning to the Premier League, making West Ham’s offer an attractive proposition.

With West Ham actively courting him, the decision now lies with Lopetegui. The opportunity to lead a Premier League club with a three-year contract is a significant one. If an agreement is reached, Lopetegui could be the man to steer West Ham into a new era.

    Right so we’re replacing a man who finished 6th, 7th and got to SF and QF of Europa League and won the ECL with a man who finished 13th in his only season in the premiership? Right. That’s fantastic. Well done.

      U19 and U21 is irrelevant. No premier league pedigree what so ever. And he was manager of Sevilla when we beat them Utterly uninspiring appointment if true.

        Yes he finished 13th in his only season in the Premier but that was when he took over at Wolves and they were bottom with only 5 points.
        What are you saying?That you want Moyes to continue?Because i surely don’t.
        As a season ticket holder i’ve been watching this dreary,dull low block football for most of this season and because he is stubborn nothing is going to change with him still in charge.

        • Harvey Fox says:

          I want Moyes out, but for someone to take the club forward. This is not the man I’m afraid.

        Irrelevant would be an archery competition.
        He won a tournament with good youthful players.
        That’s highly relevant for our situation.
        I appreciate you may not rate him, but he’s got a lot more going for him that the current incumbent.

    “you didn’t see Sir Trevor rolling around on the park or throwing HIS arms around. I’d like to see who Tim HAS got lined up as the new coach of West Ham & put MOYES out of HIS misery”

    I was born before we won any FA Cups and was at Wembley for the Cup Winners’ Cup and also there to watch our Bobby Moore, Geoff Hurst and Martin Peters help England win the World Cup in 1966. I also learnt how to write properly at school. LOL ✍️.😄

    I thought I saw an article on Claret And Hugh just the other day saying that West Ham had made an approach to Maurizio Sarri. It really is silly season already!
