David Moyes has dismissed reports stating his position as West Ham United manager has come under recent pressure and claimed his relationship with David Sullivan has not deterred, as he spoke to the press on Thursday (29 December), writes the WestHamZone.
The Hammers continued where they left off prior to the World Cup against Arsenal, slumbering to a 3-1 defeat after taking an early lead through Said Benrahma.
Growing discontent among the fanbase was evident during the team’s tenth loss from just 16 games this season, and the defeat was followed by reports stating Moyes might be sacked before their home match against Bournemouth on January 7.
Speaking to the press on Thursday, and reported via by Football Daily, the Scot shut down reporters who questioned if his position had become untenable, and claimed his relationship with the board was still strong.
“I’ve got great support from David Sullivan, so, at the moment, I’d say your sources are not correct,” he said.
“I’m not daft, you’re always under pressure as a football manager.”
