West Ham are considering Rafa Benitez as their next manager if they choose to part ways with David Moyes.
Should a managerial change transpire, the Spanish coach is set to be the top choice of The Hammers’ bosses, according to a report to have been produced by the Daily Star.
With only one victory in their last eight games and looming at the bottom three positions on the table, it may come down to Saturday’s crucial battle against relegation rivals Everton whether or not Moyes salvages his job with West Ham United Football Club.
Indeed, there will be many that will be looking at the game against the Toffees as a potential betting opportunity with a number of different storylines to look out for. Many will like the odds and markets that can potentially be found when using the safe sites listed on sitesnotongamstop.com while others will possibly like the fact that it is against one of the Scotsman’s former clubs where he perhaps enjoyed the best time of his managerial career.
Despite his recent struggles, club executives are still reluctant to part ways with Moyes and even authorized a £15m offer for Danny Ings from Aston Villa in order to try and help the manager improve things with the squad on the field.
Nonetheless, they understand that another home defeat against Everton could be detrimental to their survival prospects and force them into making an arduous decision; especially as fans could potentially start to turn on the boss and grow disillusioned with how things are at the London Stadium.
There will be some that will suggest that Benitez could be a good option to go for. With an impressive background as a Champions League winner, Benitez has a vast amount of expertise in leading football clubs around England. His prior experiences include Liverpool, Chelsea, Newcastle and Everton – the latter having released him from duty after nine losses within thirteen games one year ago. Since then he has been without a team to manage until now.
However, with his time at Everton hardly going well, it is perhaps hardly a surprise that there will be many that will be rather fearful of what could happen if he does arrive in the capital and be chosen as the man to replace Moyes should he be relieved of his duties.
Following his return to West Ham United in 2019, David Moyes has achieved an outstanding feat of leading the team to a sixth-place finish and Europa League qualification. This impressive performance earned him a three-year contract with the club that same summer; however, this time around he appears unable to replicate such success as they languish near the bottom of the Premier League table.
Unless results improve soon starting with their match against Everton on Saturday, it is likely Moyes will be removed from his position as manager. Whether the Spaniard also decides to make the move from Merseyside and join the Claret and Blue is something that perhaps only time will tell.
