Joe Cole urged the West Ham United board to tie David Moyes down to a new contract and back him in the transfer market, when speaking on BT Sport today (Saturday February 27th, 12:06pm).
The Hammers have been absolutely superb so far this season.
We are currently sitting inside the top four.
David Moyes deserves immense credit for the job that he has done since returning to the London Stadium in December 2019.
West Ham are a proper outfit now. We are well organised, well-drilled and defensively sound.
No club will relish playing us anymore. And that in itself says all you need to know about the impact David Moyes has had at the club.
Joe Cole urges West Ham board to show faith in David Moyes
The Scot is out of contract in the summer. The Hammers do have the option to extend Moyes’s deal by a further 12 months, however (ExWHUemployee).
And Joe Cole has told the West Ham board that they must show David Moyes that he has their full support:
“If West Ham are to have some kind of future it needs to be with David Moyes. They are on the right road. Just don’t deviate. Get the contract sorted out, get his staff sorted out and let him buy the players. Let him find the next Soucek, let him find the next Jarrod Bowen. He’s done a great job. And he will continue to do that given the chance to do it.”
Wherever we finish in the league this season, the West Ham board absolutely should be offering Moyes a long-term deal.
David Sullivan and David Gold have to back the Scot with adequate funds in the transfer market as well.
As Joe Cole said, we are on the right track. Now is the time to push on. And Moyes is the right man to take us forward to the next level and on into a new era of success.
