David Moyes finally says goodbye to West Ham.

David Moyes is finally saying goodbye to West Ham.

The Hammers announced via the club’s official channels on Sunday that Moyes will leave West Ham by mutual consent at the end of the 2023-2024 season, when his contract expires. Moyes, who returned to West Ham in December 2019, will leave the club after four and a half years. During that time, Moyes led the Hammers to their first trophy in 43 years. The Hammers won the Europa League last season. It was the Hammers’ first major trophy since winning the FA Cup in 1980, and their first European title since 1965.

Moyes said: “I’ve had a remarkable four-and-a-half years at West Ham and the club is in a stronger position than when I returned in 2019. In my second spell in charge of West Ham, the club was one place above the relegation zone. It’s been a great journey to reach Europe for three consecutive seasons.”

Moyes was linked with West Ham in 2017 when he succeeded Slaven Bilic as manager.

Moyes began his career at Preston in 1998 and reached his peak at Everton in 2002. Moyes earned high marks for his performance and development at Everton, a club with limited financial resources. He took over at United when Sir Alex Ferguson retired and the club was looking for a new manager. It was a surprise appointment that took everyone by surprise. 안전놀이터 추천 But it turned out to be a failure. Moyes struggled at United and was sacked after less than a season.

Moyes went on to manage Real Sociedad and Sunderland, among others. Moyes returned to the English Premier League with West Ham, but the Hammers were unable to sign him to a contract extension as the club had reached an agreement with then-manager Manuel Pellegrini.

He returned to West Ham a year later. When Pellegrini was sacked, Moyes got his chance. Moyes upgraded the team. After finishing his first season in the relegation zone in 16th place, the Hammers jumped to sixth place in the 2020-2021 season. The following season, they finished seventh. Last season, they finished a disappointing 14th, but won the Europa League Conference.

This season, the team has been in decent form, but their recent run of bad luck has angered fans.

They have only one win in their last nine games. They were also eliminated from the Europa League. With their chances of qualifying for Europe slipping away, the Hammers decided to part ways with Moyes. “I have really enjoyed working with everyone at West Ham and I would like to thank the board for giving me the opportunity to manage this great club. I wish my successor, the manager, players, staff, fans and everyone at West Ham nothing but the best for the future,” Moyes said.

The tone is set for his successor. Julen Lopetegui, the former Wolverhampton manager, was Hwang’s mentor. On June 6, the British public broadcaster BBC reported, “Lopetegui has agreed to take over as manager of West Ham at the end of the season. A deal has not yet been finalized but is close. Fabrizio Romano, one of the top authorities on the European transfer market, also tweeted on his social media account, “Lopetegui has agreed terms to become the new manager of West Ham, succeeding David Moyes, starting next season. ‘Lopetegui has accepted West Ham’s offer and we are ready to make it official. ‘We will sign the contract once the details are finalized,’ he said.

Lopetegui has previously managed FC Porto, the Spanish national team, Real Madrid, and Sevilla.

He won his first trophy as a professional coach in the 2019-2020 season when he led Sevilla to the top of the Europa League. His last job was with Wolverhampton. Lopetegui took charge of Wolverhampton in the 2022-2023 season and pulled off a miracle to keep the team in 20th place, a direct relegation zone. Lopetegui won 9, drew 4, and lost 10 of his 23 remaining games, amassing 31 points. Wolverhampton finished the season in 13th place.

However, Lopetegui resigned abruptly last summer. Wolverhampton sold key players due to financial problems, and Lopetegui was unhappy and decided to leave. 토토사이트 모음 Lopetegui was a fan favorite during his time at Wolverhampton, where he showed great affection for Hwang Hee-chan and paved the way for his resurgence. Since leaving Wolverhampton, Lopetegui has been a wildcard all season and has received many offers. Most recently, he was courted by Bayern Munich, who were looking to replace Thomas Tuchel. Lopetegui’s next destination is West Ham instead of Bayern.
