Next West Ham Manager Odds

In response to their 2-1 defeat to Leicester at the London Stadium, West Ham announced that Manuel Pellegrini had left the club with immediate effect. The decision was a result of West Ham’s poor start to the season, where 5 wins from their opening 19 Premier League games leaving them 1 point above the relegation zone, with a 4-0 defeat to Oxford United in the Carabao Cup being another terrible defeat under Pellegrini. We’ve had a look at some of the rumoured names to take over at the London Stadium and their odds of doing so.

David Moyes - 1/10

The Bookies’ favourite to take over as it stands is David Moyes who was previously in charge at the London Stadium for part of the 17/18 season. Moyes took over at West Ham back in November of 2017 with them in the relegation zone, almost the same as their current position and despite only winning 9 of his 31 games as manager of West Ham, he managed to keep them in the Premier League. There’s no doubt that West Ham should be are massively underperforming and shouldn’t be focusing on survival in the Premier League, but given their current position, it should be their aim for the remainder of the season. Moyes is currently without a club so West Ham wouldn’t need to pay any contract release clause should they wish to bring him in.

Rafa Benitez - 10/1

As well as Moyes, another name linked with the vacant role at West Ham is Rafa Benitez who is currently the manager of Chinese club Dalian Yifang. The job at West Ham isn’t completely different from the situation at Newcastle when Benitez took over, as both clubs were in a slow decline and way underperforming, but Benitez brought Newcastle from the Championship and lead them to a 10th place finish during the 17/18 season. Considering that West Ham face a possibility of relegation, Benitez could be the best option to improve their form.

Eddie Howe - 12/1

Another name linked with West Ham is Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe, with the bookies putting a 12/1 price on him leaving the south coast and replacing Manuel Pellegrini. Over the past few seasons, West Ham have made a habit (same as many other clubs) of consistently replacing managers, as they have had 4 managers since 2015. Since taking charge of Bournemouth back in 2012, Howe has taken the Cherries from League One team to an established Premier League side. Considering West Ham’s current situation, to bring in a manager who is experienced in the Premier League would be a smart move in our eyes not only for this season, but for the foreseeable future as Howe is a young manager who has shown that he if he is given time at a club, he can constantly improve them.
