David Moyes has been the West Ham United manager since November 2019, returning to the club for a second time. In the 2019/20 season, Moyes guided the Irons to Premier League survival after a difficult start. Over the following seasons, he continued to stabilize West Ham and achieve respectable mid-table finishes.
Moyes's finest achievement came in the 2022/23 season, when he led West Ham to their first European final since 1999. The Hammers went on to beat Fiorentina, bringing home the title.
Despite these successes, there were rumors at points last season that Moyes could be sacked, as West Ham struggled with consistency in the league. However, he still retains the backing of the club's owners, as he’s said to have a good relationship with David Sullivan who owns a 38.8% stake in the club.

Graham Potter and the Next Managers Odds
Graham Potter is currently the bookmakers' favorite to become the next West Ham manager if Moyes departs. He is known for a pragmatic yet imaginative coaching style, improving his players, tactical flexibility and being influenced by Pep Guardiola.
Potter is currently without a job after being dismissed by Chelsea last season. His time at Chelsea was difficult, but prior to that he impressed in his spells at Ostersunds, Swansea City and Brighton. With his track record of getting the best out of players and playing progressive football, he could be an exciting appointment for West Ham if he gets the job.
William Still is a highly rated young English manager, currently in charge of Stade de Reims in France. His coaching strengths include tactical flexibility, getting the best out of his players, and balanced teams that are solid defensively but dynamic in attack.
At just 30 years old, he still would be a bold and intriguing appointment by West Ham if they move for him, especially since he’s publicly confessed to being a fan of the club. The Belgian tactician is passionate, knowledgeable and has experience coaching in France's top division already despite his young age.
Michael Carrick is familiar with West Ham, having started his playing career at the club. As a coach, he is known for good communication, a player-centered approach and tactical flexibility.
Carrick was assistant and then caretaker manager at Manchester United after being a key player there under Sir Alex Ferguson. He has an understanding of delivering success at a big club, which could be valuable experience at West Ham. However, his full coaching career has so far been confined only to Middlesbrough in the Championship.
Paulo Fonseca's coaching style revolves around attacking football, ingenuity, player development and collaborative coaching. He has caught the eye of top clubs like West Ham due to his modern, progressive approach.
The Portuguese manager has experience coaching in Ukraine and Italy. He would bring an ambition to play front-foot, exciting football which could appeal to West Ham if they want to take the next step as a club. The Irons reportedly contacted Fonseca when the rumours about Moyes’s departure were at their highest.
As a legendary former player for Liverpool and Real Madrid, Xabi Alonso is still early in his coaching career but showing promise. His approach focuses on communication, tactics, player development and adaptability.
Alonso took over Bayer Leverkusen last season when they were battling relegation, and led them to a 6th place finish in the Bundesliga. His European run was equally impressive, only falling to Jose Mourinho’s AS Roma in the Europa League semi-finals. His ability to achieve solid results with a talented squad could make him an interesting option for West Ham as they target European qualification.
