West Ham confirm decision over Moyes future after European glory

West Ham chairman David Sullivan has stated that David Moyes will remain as the team’s manager for the upcoming season, writes the Evening Standard.

Moyes led West Ham to their first significant trophy in 43 years on Wednesday, as they secured a 2-1 victory over Fiorentina in the Europa Conference League final held in Prague. Despite some speculation regarding Moyes’ future, regardless of the final result, due to a challenging Premier League season where the team spent a considerable portion near the relegation zone before finishing 14th, Sullivan confirmed in an interview with talkSPORT that Moyes will continue as West Ham’s head coach until at least the end of the next summer, assuming he desires to remain in his position.

“We believed in him”, said Sullivan. “We came in for a lot of pressure from supporters, the press and everyone who seemed mad on making changes but we believe in honouring contracts.

“David had a contract with us, and has a contract with us until next summer — and next summer we’ll look at it again. Until then, if he wants to remain as manager then he will remain as manager of West Ham.”
