David Moyes lands top UEFA job at Euros which could benefit West Ham

David Moyes has landed a key role with UEFA at this summer’s European Championships and it could benefit West Ham United.

West Ham close to massive double signing claims journalist who broke Buendia to Villa

West Ham are basking in a superb season under Moyes in which they recorded their highest ever Premier League points total and secured Europa League group stage football for the first time.

The Hammers needed to beef up their squad in key areas anyway.

Moyes knows he must improve West Ham squad in several key areas

But the added workload competing in Europe means that is now a necessity.

Moyes will be scouring Europe for some quality talent he can add to West Ham’s ranks.

And his task will be made easier after the Scot landed a key ‘technical observer’ role with UEFA for the Euros.

Speaking to The Times, West Ham boss Moyes lifted the lid on what his role for the summer will entail.

Task made easier as Hammers boss lands top UEFA job for Euros

“I went to the 1998 World Cup, as a member of the Tartan Army but this time I will have to keep my professional hat on,” Moyes told The Times.

“Uefa has invited me to join its team of technical observers. We’ll be tasked with analysing the games and compiling a report on the tactical trends the football throws up.

“I did the same at Euro 2016 and have been helping Uefa analyse this season’s Champions League.

“Football keeps evolving, and in every season and at every tournament we see something a wee bit different.”

Technical observer role shows Moyes’s standing in the game

It shows the West Ham boss’s standing in the game that he has been head-hunted by UEFA.

Moyes has made it clear that he insists on watching potential new signings in the flesh before making any moves.

So his role at the Euros could end up benefiting West Ham with the Hammers boss able to scout players first hand.

Moyes is regularly seen scouting at Premier League matches when West Ham haven’t got a game. He is recognised as one of the hardest working managers in the game.

West Ham desperately need at least one new striker, a central midfielder, centre-back and possibly a goalkeeper and left-back too.

Is this the real reason for Moyes contract delay after report makes claim?
