Tony Cottee has said it’s ‘absolutely vital’ that West Ham offers David Moyes a new contract after the Hammers’ successful season in the Premier League, when speaking to Sky Sports.
David Moyes has managed to get West Ham in a Champions League place fight this season.
This amazing job shouldn’t go unnoticed according to former Hammer Tony Cottee.
Cottee believes Moyes’ contract is ‘absolutely vital’ for West Ham to sort out – and surely most would agree with that assessment.
Cottee on Moyes
When speaking to Sky Sports, the former Hammer was very pleased with the job Moyes has done so far in London:
“He’s been excellent with his man management, he’s made some really good signings and they have got a great team spirit.
“Everything’s really positive at the club and it’s a massive turnaround from what was going on this time last year.”
When asked how important sorting out David Moyes’ contract is, Cottee gave a short but sweet answer:
“It’s absolutely vital.”
The Hammers’ route to Europe
With just eight matches left to play for the Irons, let’s take a look at some of the hurdles that stand in between them and European football next season.
The first match takes place later on today against Leicester City, which could prove vital in the race for the Champions League spots.
The Foxes are currently in third place, just four points above the sixth-place Hammers.
If West Ham can get past the Foxes, they have to deal with a struggling Newcastle United, Chelsea and Burnley in their next three matches.
Two out of the three matches certainly seem winnable, with Chelsea being the clear tough fixture among the trio.
The Irons’ final four opponents are Everton, Brighton, West Brom and Southampton.
These are all games you could see West Ham having success in, which is a huge boost to their Champions League hopes.
Only Everton look like they could cause Moyes’ side some issues and even they are in bad form right now.
