New West Ham appointment proves Moyes is staying 'really long time' - pundit

David Moyes could be set to stay at West Ham for a “really long time” after he appointed his son to the scouting team.

That is according to ex-Premier League goalkeeper Paddy Kenny, speaking exclusively to Football Insider after the Daily Mail revealed the appointment of David Moyes Jnr on 27th June.

Moyes Jnr previously worked as an agent for Wasserman and spent 16 months as a coach with Burnley, as per his LinkedIn profile.

An overhaul of the scouting department is underway and, as revealed by this site on 28th June, Alan Irvine is a leading contender to be the club’s new director of football.

Moyes signed a new three-year deal with West Ham in June after steering them towards Premier League qualification in 2020-21.

Kenny claims Moyes Jnr’s appointment is a clear sign that the manager is “stamping his authority” on the club.

“He’s making his mark, I think,” he told Football Insider correspondent Adam Williams.

After what he’s done at that club with the two spells he’s had, he’s been unbelievable.

“With stuff like this, you can see him staying there for a really long time.”

“If he feels like his son can come in and do a good job, then I don’t see why not. He knows better than anybody.

“I’m sure he’ll keep his eye on him and make sure he’s working hard for the club. He’s stamping his authority down on the club and he’s earned that right over the last few years.
