West Ham are wasting no time in their quest to find a new manager, after it became clear that David Moyes wasn’t the man for the job.
The Scottish boss achieved the minimum objective of keeping the Hammers in the Premier League but failed to inspire the supporters properly, with it now reported his short-term deal would not be extended.
Moyes’ contract at the London Stadium expired after Sunday’s victory over Everton and the club have immediately began their search for a successor, already holding talks with highly-rated Shakhtar Donetsk boss Paulo Fonseca.
The Daily Mirror reports that talks between the two parties went well but West Ham are now set for talks with Unai Emery, who left Paris Saint-Germain recently.
Emery attracted plenty of praise during his successful time in charge of Sevilla, winning numerous Europa League titles, but failed to achieve PSG’s objective of winning the Champions League and is succeeded in the French capital by former Borussia Dortmund boss Thomas Tuchel.
The 46-year-old Spaniard is one of the potential candidates to take charge of West Ham but the club have concerns regarding his lack of English – although that didn’t prove to be a problem for Mauricio Pochettino at Tottenham.
