Sky Sports pundit '99% sure' that this man will be appointed West Ham manager
By Guy Giles
Ray Wilkins has said West Ham’s decision to not sack goalkeeping coach Chris Woods would suggest that David Moyes is set to become the Hammers’ next manager.
Woods was the only member of West Ham’s backroom staff to retain his job after the sacking of Bilic, with Nikola Jurcevic, Edin Terzic, Julian Dicks and Miljenko Rak all dismissed.
Wilkins sees this as a clue that the club will appoint Moyes as Bilic’s successor as the two men have worked together at both Everton and Manchester United.
Speaking to Sky Sports, as quoted by the Express, Wilkins said: “Do you know why I’m 99 per cent sure it’s David Moyes as well?
“The only person who hasn’t gone is Chris Woods, the goalkeeping coach. He was David Moyes’ goalkeeping coach at Everton and Manchester United so it would appear it’s David coming in.”
