Chris Sutton has recommended that David Moyes remain at West Ham United following their victory in the Europa Conference League, writes the HITC. The former striker believes that Moyes has experienced an incredible journey at West Ham, and the club has recently had one of its best seasons in the past 50 years, as he expressed on BBC Radio 5 Live Sport’s 606 show.
While there have been suggestions that Celtic is considering Moyes as their new manager following Ange Postecoglou’s departure, it is likely that Moyes will continue at the London Stadium after ending West Ham’s 43-year trophy drought. Although the team’s Premier League performance had its issues, the achievement of winning a major trophy would have been welcomed by West Ham fans.
However, Sutton acknowledged that Moyes’ future is still uncertain and that there is speculation surrounding it. Perhaps one day Moyes will take charge of the Scottish giants, but for now, it seems likely that he will remain with West Ham.
“We had a lot of callers from West Ham fans saying ‘we aren’t sure about David Moyes’,” said Sutton.
“It’s still up in the air, as far as I can see, whether David Moyes will stay at West Ham next season.
“I think this last season must have been one of the best seasons of the last 50 years and certainly during the last three years, it has been one hell of a ride under David Moyes.”
If Moyes believes it is time for him to move on, then that is understandable. And winning a trophy would be a remarkable way to end his tenure. However, the rumors suggesting that his job was at risk during their struggles in the Premier League should now be dismissed entirely. Moyes has proven his worth and deserves to stay on. He should seize the opportunity to guide the team towards capturing the Europa League next season, which would be an even more extraordinary accomplishment.
