David Moyes will step down as West Ham United’s manager at the end of the season, bringing to a close his second stint at the club. The 61-year-old Scot, who ended the team’s 43-year trophy drought by winning the Europa Conference League last year, has faced increasing scrutiny during the team’s recent slump, culminating in a 5-0 thrashing by Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

Moyes reflected on his four and a half years at West Ham, highlighting the progress made since he returned in 2019, saying “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 have enjoyed four and a half brilliant years at West Ham, and the club is in a stronger position than when I returned back in 2019.

“When I joined West Ham for a second time, the club was one place above the relegation zone, and it has been a terrific journey to have achieved three consecutive seasons in Europe.

“I would like to thank all the players for their support, and all the success they have achieved, over the last four and a half years.

“I wish my eventual successor, the directors, the players, the staff, the fans, and everybody at West Ham, all the very best for the future.”

Sources have revealed that the club has already engaged in talks with Julen Lopetegui to replace Moyes. The board, led by joint-chairman David Sullivan, expressed its appreciation for Moyes’ contribution and announced that the search for his successor is underway.

“On behalf of everyone at West Ham United, I would like to offer our sincere thanks and gratitude to David for the contribution he has made to the football club during his time as manager.

“David has been responsible for a period of great progress and success in our history, and we are extremely grateful for all of his hard work, commitment and dedication to the role.

“By making this announcement now, it allows David to get the send-off he deserves from the West Ham supporters and for us all to show our appreciation to him at our final home fixture of the season against Luton Town on Saturday,” said joint-chairman David Sullivan.

Moyes’ managerial career has spanned over 500 Premier League matches, and his tenure at West Ham included avoiding relegation in both of his spells and establishing a style that brought European competition. His final matches in charge will be against Luton Town and Manchester City, closing out a chapter that marked significant progress for West Ham United.
