West Ham owner David Sullivan is reportedly undecided over whether or not to hand David Moyes a new contract.
That’s according to a recent report from HITC, who claims the Hammers’ owner is ‘frustrated’ by things happening both on, and off, the pitch.
There appears to be a divide within the club behind the scenes with Sullivan open to offering Moyes a new deal beyond the end of the season but others feeling differently.
The 60-year-old’s comments on technical director Tim Steidten at the end of the January transfer window did not go down well.
Speaking to the Standard about the club’s lack of late activity, Moyes said: “Tim’s German and they’ve got it all done, tools down early, all the stuff done whereas we’re last minute. He’s probably struggling to get used to our culture.
“The culture here is lots of deals at the end and the supporters hoping for a last-minute deal. Maybe this window there will be but at the moment it’s not as if it’s been a huge window for anybody.”
With the manager and the technical director pulling in different directions, it seems inevitable the pair will not work together for much longer — who Sullivan decides to back beyond this season remains unknown though.
Renewing Moyes’ deal has since been made harder following the team’s 6-0 thrashing at home against Arsenal last weekend. The Hammers didn’t just lose, they looked utterly deflated and like a team who should be fighting relegation, not for a European spot.
