West Ham striker Andy Caroll has suggested that players from the club were unhappy playing under David Moyes last season.
Moyes was appointed as manager of the club last term on a short term deal following the sacking of Slaven Bilic. The former Manchester United and Everton manager did achieve his mandate of guiding the club away from the relegation zone but in the end they decided not to renew his contract.
The Scot is largely not liked as his most recent managerial stints with the likes of Real Sociedad, United and Sunderland have all been failures.
The club instead opted to recruit former Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini to lead the club this season. In Pellegrini, the Hammers have a manager who is vastly experienced and who has previously won the Premier League. So far the Hammers have been inconsistent this season but they have achieved good results recently and have been playing an impressive brand of football.
That said, Caroll as reported by The Sun, has revealed that his team-mates were not happy playing under Moyes.
“I’ve got a two-year option, it’s the club’s option.
“I’ve been injured, so it’s not one of those where I can just pick up the phone and say, ‘Give me a two-year deal’.
“I’ve got to prove it. That’s what I need to do.
“Last season was up and down.
“We had Stuart Pearce doing sessions, then David Moyes was doing sessions.
“It didn’t really feel right, it didn’t work. The lads weren’t happy.”
