Former Chelsea and Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas is on West Ham’s radar as they look for a replacement for Sam Allardyce, reports the Daily Star.
Despite being a relative success since getting the club promoted back in to the Premier League in 2012, it is expected that the Hammers hierarchy will announce that they are not renewing Allardyce’s contract on Monday. With a move to the Olympic stadium coming in the next few years they could be looking for a manager with a more attractive style to fill the larger ground.
Villas-Boas has endured a terrible time in English football, getting sacked from both Chelsea and Tottenham in the space of a couple of seasons. The Portuguese is now in charge of Zenit St. Petersuburg, where he has come under criticism for his style of play. However, this doesn’t seem to have put off the East London side.
Having already been turned down by both Napoli boss Rafael Benitez and Real Sociedad manager David Moyes, it could be that West Ham end up regretting letting Allardyce go.
