West Ham United are one of just 10 teams which have played more than 300 games in the Premier League. They’ve been relegated from the top-flight twice and have had several up & down periods throughout the clubs history,
West Ham’s last major trophy was winning the FA Cup back in 1980 but they also won the Intertoto Cup in 1999.
Five managers have taken charge of the club since 2015, including a double stint from their current manager, David Moyes.
David Moyes is a Scottish professional football coach and former player who is best known for his managerial career. He was born on April 25, 1963, in Glasgow, Scotland and took over as manager of West Ham United in November 2017 following a season in charge at Sunderland.
Moyes began his playing career as a central defender for Celtic and then moved on to play for a number of other Scottish clubs, including Dunfermline Athletic and Hamilton Academical. However, he never achieved significant success as a player and retired in 1990 at the age of 27 due to a knee injury.
Moyes then began his managerial career in 1998, starting as a coach at Preston North End. He became the club’s manager the following year and led the team to promotion to the Second Division in his first full season in charge. He spent four years at Preston, during which time he also took the team to the play-offs twice.
In 2002, Moyes was appointed as manager of Everton, where he would spend the next 11 years of his career. During his time at Everton, Moyes established himself as one of the most successful managers in the club’s history, taking the team to a number of top-six finishes in the Premier League and leading them to the FA Cup final in 2009.
In 2013, Moyes was appointed as manager of Manchester United, succeeding Sir Alex Ferguson. However, his time at United was short-lived and he was sacked just 10 months into the job after a disappointing season that saw the team finish seventh in the Premier League.
Since leaving United, Moyes has managed a number of other clubs, including Real Sociedad, Sunderland, and most recently, West Ham United. He has continued to establish himself as a successful manager and has earned a reputation for his tactical nous and ability to build strong teams on a relatively limited budget.
Moyes’ first stint as manager of West Ham was on just a 6-month contract. However, he returned to the club a year and a half later, replacing Manuel Pellegrini, who had left the Hammers just one point above the relegation zone in 17th place in the Premier League.
Other than his 6-month stint back in 2017/18, David Moyes has been the manager of West Ham since December 2019. He lead the club to a 6th-placed finish in 2021 and 7th place the following season but a poor run of results in 2022/23 has lead to increased pressure on the Scottish manager.
West Ham’s poor season has resulted in him being one of the bookies favourites for the sack race.
If Moyes was to be sacked, who could replace him?
We’ve listed the most likely contenders below with the latest odds for the next West Ham manager.

|Nuno Espirito Santo||12/1|
Rafa Benitez is the favourite to be named as the next permanent manager of West Ham United.
The former Everton, Liverpool and Newcastle boss is currently the shortest odds to replace David Moyes as manager of West Ham.
Benitez has years of managerial experience in the English top-flight and has been out of work since leaving Goodison Park following just six months in charge of Everton.
The Spanish manager, who has many honours including the UEFA Champions League with Liverpool, the UEFA Europa League with Chelsea, the English championship with Newcastle along with the Italian Cup, Italian Super Cup, the Community Shield and several others, has hinted at a return to the Premier League in recent press conferences.
Rafa Benitez is currently odds of 3/1 to be the next West Ham manager.
