A furious David Moyes once again hinted at a summer of significant overhaul despite West Ham’s encouraging season and accused his team of lacking “bottle” after they blew the chance to secure a Europa League return on the final day. The Hammers began Sunday in seventh place but knew that they could leapfrog Manchester United should they win away at Brighton and Ralf Rangnick’s men fail to do so at Crystal Palace. The result sees a campaign in which the Irons reached the semi-finals of the Europa League end on a low note, though they will still be back in Europe next season in the third-tier Conference league.
West Ham boss David Moyes warned his players he will not accept a repeat of a dismal second-half performance which cost the club a Europa League return. The Hammers, who suffered semi-final heartbreak in the continental competition just over two weeks ago, were on course to snatch sixth position from Manchester United after Michail Antonio put them ahead against Brighton. Moyes’ must be content with a place in the Europa Conference League next term following the costly capitulation, much to the annoyance of their disgruntled manager.
Moyes was absolutely spitting feathers at his West Ham players after they completely fluffed their lines in the race to qualify for the Europa League
