Amid rumors that West Ham United is considering replacing David Moyes, journalist Julien Laurens has commended the ‘genius’ manager Will Still, writes the FTT.
This season, Moyes has faced persistent pressure as he has failed to build on the club’s two previous successful seasons. Despite leading his team to back-to-back European qualification campaigns in the run-up to this season, the Hammers have underperformed after a summer of heavy spending.
Last year, West Ham signed several players, including Alphonse Areola, Nayef Aguerd, Flynn Downes, Gianluca Scamacca, Maxwel Cornet, Thilo Kehrer, Emerson Palmieri, and club-record signing Lucas Paqueta. However, the team now finds themselves in the relegation zone at 18th place, battling to avoid relegation to the Championship. Consequently, there has been a lot of speculation about who could replace Moyes if the club decides to part ways with him.
Football journalist Julien Laurens, speaking on Sky Sports (via Football Daily), has praised Will Still, who is reportedly being considered by West Ham. According to Laurens, Still is a “bit of a genius,” and his ascent in Ligue 1 has been nothing short of “huge” and “remarkable.” When asked about Still’s journey, Laurens stated that it was a significant story, particularly given his young age and the maturity he has displayed tactically and in his man-management skills, even with players who are older than him. He added that Still has a bright future ahead of him.
Regarding the rumors linking Still to West Ham, Laurens commented that while he may not be ready for such a significant job, what he has accomplished so far is “incredible.” Reportedly, Will Still, who has been doing an outstanding job with Reims this season, is attracting interest from West Ham United.
