Claret & Hugh reports that West Ham has rejected any rumors about Jose Mourinho becoming the new manager in place of David Moyes. However, according to laRoma24 on March 7th, the Hammers made an impressive offer to Mourinho to replace Moyes, but he has no intention of considering it.
Additionally, a reliable source informed Claret & Hugh that Mourinho has never been and will not be a candidate for the position should Moyes be replaced, as relays the WHZ. The source also remarked that Mourinho has had a reputation for being difficult to work with at most of the clubs he has been a part of.
Despite Jose Mourinho’s impressive track record and success in his managerial career, it is highly unlikely that he would leave his current position at Roma, which is a prestigious club, to manage a struggling team in a relegation battle like West Ham. Furthermore, it is unlikely that Mourinho would consider a move to West Ham at the end of the season.
Therefore, the club should avoid pursuing him as a potential manager and instead focus on finding a younger, vibrant, and ambitious coach who can lead the team through their rebuilding phase, such as Michael Carrick, who is currently doing well at Middlesborough, or Steve Cooper from Nottingham Forest.
While West Ham remains an attractive club for many managers, they should be careful not to waste time on candidates who do not fit their requirements. However, sacking David Moyes before the end of the season could put the club in a difficult position.
