Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers has urged West Ham’s ownership to stick with David Moyes for the long haul ahead of the two teams meeting at the King Power on Sunday lunchtime. While Moyes’ job is in no way under threat just three games into the new season and off the back of a 4-0 thumping of Wolves in the Premier League, Moyes’ position is under threat with lack of signings and poor results on the pitch. The Hammers manager hasn’t been on the touchline for the last three games having tested positive for coronavirus and is not expected to be in the dugout for the visit to Leicester this weekend as he is yet to return to work at Rush Green. Rodgers, whose side are flying at the top of the table after the first three matches of the 2020/21 campaign, had a message for Hammers chiefs David Sullivan and David Gold ahead of the match.
Brendan Rodgers said “I’m very confident that the longer David and his staff, Alan and Stuart. are there, then the more they grow because David is a proven manager, As you say, the Arsenal result was unfortunate, they played very well, are difficult to beat, have speed on the counter attack, guys who are a threat. Then against Wolves, that was a fantastic result against a team that didn’t concede many goals. To win 4-0 was a huge shot of confidence. They come at the weekend with a plan, they have threats we have to be ready for.”
