Sam Allardyce is sacked by West Ham United and now the search for a new manager begins

The beginning of the season was a sensational one for West Ham United and Sam Allardyce as the club managed to claim huge victories against big clubs such as: Manchester City and Liverpool. This allowed West Ham United to compete in the higher spots of the Premier League for a few weeks but things began to collapse in the 2nd half of the season as they slipped points and spots in the English until eventually managing to secure the 12th spot of the Premier League.

It seems like claiming the 12th position wasn’t good enough for the head chiefs of West Ham United as it has been confirmed that Sam Allardyce was not offered a contract extension and the manager had to leave his managerial role at the club.

The announcement was made to the public less than 24 hours after West Ham United played their last match of the season against Newcastle United on May 24 in a match that concluded with a final scoreboard of 2-0.

There is a list of managers who are rumored to being selected as the new manager of West Ham United including: Carlo Ancelotti, Rafael Benitez, Andre Villas-Boas and Steve McClaren.

Making the decision of sacking Sam Allardyce was a controversial one not all of the fans of West Ham United completely agree with this choice as the club managed to avoid the bottom relegation in a season that was filled with highs and downs from almost every single club in the league and finishing at the 12th spot is respectable compared to others who were either relegated or just went through a disastrous time throughout the entire season.

West Ham United are now left without a manager in such an important part of the season as the summer transfer window is edging nearer and managers are already setting up their wish-list of possible players to sign in order to reinforce their respective clubs but West Ham United must first decide on who to appoint as the next manager.
