West Ham insider delivers an update on Mauricio Pochettino potentially replacing David Moyes at West Ham.
News emanating from France broke yesterday that the Hammers have made initial contact with Pochettino about the possibility of him taking over from Moyes at the London Stadium.
West Ham have endured a woeful start to the 2022/23 Premier League season, and are currently sitting inside the bottom three after five defeats from our opening seven games.
It’s Wolves at home up next for the Hammers and nothing else than a win will do.
David Moyes apparently has just five games to save his job as West Ham manager according to The Telegraph’s Matt Law.
And a bad result against Wolves would see the pressure really piled on Moyes’s shoulders.
So could the Scot really be sacked? And more importantly, could Pochettino really be brought into the London Stadium?
West Ham insider delivers update on Pochettino potentially replacing Moyes
Hammers high-level insiders Claret and Hugh claim that the reports from France about Pochettino moving to the London Stadium very much could be a case of 2+2=5.
In my opinion, it wouldn’t surprise me one little bit if the West Ham owners had a move for Pochettino lined up.
He loves living in London and is currently out of work. In fact, he still has a house in London according to The Daily Mail.
Jeunes Footeux reckon that key figures at West Ham are concerned that the club are falling behind the times with Moyes at the helm, and Pochetitno would help solve that in an instant.
The ex-Tottenham boss likes to implement a high intensity, high press playing style – something that Moyes has never done.
We have a truly exceptional group of players at the London Stadium now, and there is absolutely no way that we should be floundering down the bottom of the Premier League table.
Pochettino worked absolute wonders with Tottenham during his time in charge in north London, and made them genuine title challengers, as well as taking them to a Champions League final.
The key point to make here is that if he was to even consider taking over as West Ham manager, he would need guarantees that there would be big money available to spend in January (Jeunes Footeux).
And after Moyes’s huge outlay in the summer, it’s highly doubtful that the Hammers owners would be prepared to provide Pochettino with that.
We think that Pochettino would be a brilliant replacement for Moyes as West Ham manager. We don’t doubt that the Hammers owners have sounded out Pochettino, but the South American taking over in East London just doesn’t seem feasible as things stand.
And whilst nothing is impossible in football, we just can’t see this one happening anytime soon.
