  • David Moyes'S West Ham Future Still In Balance Until End Of Season

David Moyes's West Ham future still in balance until end of season

West Ham manager David Moyes believes his future at the East London club will be decided after the final game of the season.

The Scot, who turned 61 on Thursday, will be out of contract at the end of the campaign and has stalled on signing a new one.

However, that uncertainty has prompted West Ham owner David Sullivan to consider potential replacements, and this week he held brief talks with Sporting Lisbon coach Ruben Amorim.

Former Wolves boss Julen Lopetegui, currently out of work, is another name understood to be on the shortlist.

However, Moyes insists he will sit down with the club’s hierarchy to discuss his role following the final whistle against Manchester City on May 19.

“The most important thing is that things would need to be right between me and the club,” he said. “And if we get that right then we will see what happens – but it will be at the end of the season.

“You can continue to ask me the questions and I’m happy to take them. But it’s not as if I’ve changed track in any way.

“We’ve always said it will be made at the end of the season and as far as I’m concerned that will still be the decision.

“That’s the way I see it and that’s something that me and the board were happy to do.”

Moyes and West Ham were left reeling after a 5-2 defeat at Crystal Palace last Sunday, during which they were 4-0 down inside half an hour.

“I was ashamed that we were four down after 30 minutes,” added Moyes. “I don’t think my teams have done that over the years,

“I didn’t like it. I hope I can make sure that doesn’t happen in the future but in football you never can tell. We need to defend better generally and that comes from number 1 to 11 on the team.”

Moyes hopes Jarrod Bowen will be fit to face Liverpool in Saturday’s lunchtime kick-off as they bid to keep their hopes of another season in Europe alive.
