Julen Lopetegui Set To Become West Ham Manager

Former Wolves boss Julen Lopetegui is poised to become West Ham’s new manager, signalling a change from David Moyes.

Julen Lopetegui has agreed to take over at West Ham as manager at the end of the season, though formalities are pending.

The 57-year-old, who previously managed Wolves, is expected to succeed David Moyes amidst growing uncertainty over the latter’s tenure.

West Ham’s recent struggles, with just one win in their last nine Premier League matches and elimination from the Europa League, have intensified scrutiny on Moyes. A 5-0 defeat to Chelsea has added to the pressure, leaving the team in ninth place in the league standings.

Moyes, whose contract expires in the summer, has deferred discussions about his future until after the final game against Manchester City on May 19.

Lopetegui, a former Spain and Real Madrid coach, has emerged as a leading candidate for the West Ham job, eager to return to the Premier League following his successful stint at Wolves, where he guided the team to safety.

Despite Moyes achieving significant milestones at West Ham, including securing European qualification, his tactical approach has faced criticism from some fans. Lopetegui’s potential appointment signifies a potential shift for the club as they aim to address recent setbacks and pursue further success in the Premier League.
