David Moyes has criticized the Premier League for not providing any assistance to West Ham despite their successful performance in Europe.
Despite their struggles this season, West Ham has been rising quickly under Moyes over the past few seasons. The Hammers have been performing well in Europe. They have qualified for the last 16 of European football for two consecutive seasons, which is a historic achievement for the club. T
he Hammers are set to face Cypriot side Larnaca over two legs in the next few weeks for a place in the quarter-finals of the Europa Conference League, after reaching the Europa League semi-finals last season.
Despite being one of the top-flight’s European representatives, Moyes feels that the Premier League has not done enough to support the club by giving them more time between matches.
West Ham is on their way to another 50-55 game season and had a match against Man United in the FA Cup fifth round on Wednesday night. They will be playing at Brighton stadium on Saturday, followed by an away game in Larnaca on Thursday, and a home game against Villa next Sunday.
Moyes criticized Premier League for not being more considerate towards the club, especially given their achievements in Europe.
In his recent press conference Moyes said: “It’s not an easy thing when you play Thursday-Sunday, of course,”
“I don’t think the Premier League has helped putting this game on a Saturday after the cup tie on Wednesday.
“But we turn up and we play.
“But we’re looking forward to the Thursday-Sundays because it means we’re competing in Europe.”
