Mauricio Pochettino among West Ham’s four-man shortlist to replace David Moyes

Mauricio Pochettino is reportedly on the four-man shortlist to replace David Moyes as West Ham United manager.

Moyes is under mounting pressure at the London Stadium following Saturday's 1-0 defeat away to Wolverhampton Wanderers, which saw the Hammers drop into the Premier League relegation zone. The result leaves West Ham without a win in their last seven league matches and Moyes is now on the brink of being sacked.

According to the Telegraph, West Ham have already drawn up a four-man shortlist of candidates to takeover from Moyes, which includes former Tottenham Hotspur boss Pochettino.

He is joined by Thomas Tuchel, Rafael Benitez and Nuno Espirito Santo on the shortlist, with the club said to be weighing up whether or not to opt for a short-term appointment until the end of the season.

The report also states that the West Ham board are willing to give Moyes more time to turn their form around due to his record since being appointed in December 2019.

Moyes has guided the Hammers to back-to-back top seven finishes and oversaw a run to the semi-finals of the Europa League last season.

However, he would have to end a run of form that has seen his side win just one of their last 10 Premier League matches, starting with the visit of fellow strugglers Everton next weekend.

Saturday's loss to Wolves has left West Ham one point from safety and they are only off the foot of the table on goal difference following the latest round of matches.

It is understood that Pochettino and Tuchel are the preferred candidates amongst supporters, as opposed to Nuno and Benitez. Meanwhile, Nuno is the only shortlisted manager currently attached to a club, having taken over at Saudi Arabia's Al-Ittihad in July.

Pochettino has been out of work since leaving Paris Saint-Germain in the summer and has not managed in England since he was sacked by Spurs in November 2019.

During his time in north London, though, he helped the club reach a maiden Champions League final and oversaw four consecutive top four finishes.
