Pundit issues 'huge' West Ham claim after BBC's David Moyes update

David Moyes can still make the 2022-23 season a successful one for West Ham.

That’s according to former Hibernian striker Tam McManus, speaking exclusively to Football Insider about the Irons’ manager’s future.

Moyes is under pressure after the Hammers’ most recent loss, a 2-0 home defeat against Leicester City on Saturday (12 November).

The Irons have now lost three league games on the bounce, leaving them in 16th and just one point above the relegation zone.

According to the BBC, (13 November) club chiefs are backing the former Everton boss to pull the Londoners out of their current slump.

McManus insists this is the right course of action.

“Who do you get in if Moyes goes?” McManus told Football Insider‘s Ben Wild.

“Listen, it’s a bad start. Anyone can tell you that, we all know it. But I don’t want to see Moyes get sacked. Where he has taken West Ham, he deserves time.

“There is no way they go down, that just won’t happen. Give him January and the rest of the season to turn things around.

“Then see where you are in the summer, that’s the thing to do at this point. The players know him and they will perform for him if they are given a chance.

“Moyes has a big few games when the season starts up again and I’m backing West Ham to win them, they will reset during this break and win those huge games.

“The table is so tight and they can be back up where they should be in no time at all.”

West Ham face Fulham in their next Premier League game on 17 December.

They have only won four of their 15 league games so far this season.
