As a result of that poor form, the Hammers currently find themselves inside the relegation zone midway through the season.

Recent reports have suggested the Sean Dyche is primed to take over from Moyes. It seems as though the West Ham owners have someone else on their radar though…

David Moyes in line for sack

According to the Daily Star, the Hammers owners have already decided that Rafa Benitez will be the man to take over from Moyes at the London Stadium.

The out of work Spaniard lost his job as Everton boss this time last year. However, it could be too long before we see him back in the Premier League.

Plenty of West Ham fans are against the idea of Benitez being appointed as manager. The thing is though, he has an extensive record of achieving success pretty much everywhere he has been.

Rafa has two La Liga titles, a Champions League, an FA Cup and a Europa League to his name.

He has enjoyed successful spells with Valencia and Liverpool, but has endured hard times with the likes of Newcastle and Everton.

Peter Crouch recently suggested that Rafa has an ‘incredible tactical brain’ (Daily Mail).

I would take Rafa Benitez in a heartbeat over David Moyes. The thing is though, I wouldn’t want him as a long term replacement for the Scot. That being said, the Spaniard is definitely good enough to guide us to safety.

With David Moyes reportedly in line for the sack, it might not be too long before we see Rafa at the London Stadium.
