West Ham’s Steidten-Moyes Discord Raises Speculation Amid Director’s Liverpool Link

Frank McAvennie hints at discord between Moyes and Steidten, raising speculation amid the latter's Liverpool link.

Former Hammers and Celtic striker, Frank McAvennie, sheds light on reported disagreements between West Ham manager David Moyes and recruitment chief Johannes Steidten. As Steidten emerges as a leading candidate for Liverpool’s director of football role, McAvennie suggests that if the discord persists, it may be in the best interest of West Ham for Steidten to move on.

In a conversation with Football Insider, McAvennie expressed the view that Moyes might not fully respect Steidten’s opinion, potentially leading to tensions over transfer targets and deals. The reported disharmony has sparked speculation, especially as Steidten is considered a crucial figure behind West Ham’s successful summer signings, including Mohammed Kudus, Edson Alvarez, and James Ward-Prowse.

Acknowledging the importance of unity within the club, McAvennie emphasized the need for everyone to be content and suggested that a director who cares about the team’s well-being is crucial. While acknowledging that individuals don’t necessarily need to be friends, McAvennie highlighted the significance of mutual respect and alignment on player-related decisions.

The potential departure of Steidten to Liverpool has further fueled discussions, with McAvennie expressing a willingness to see him leave if it contributes to a more harmonious backroom environment at West Ham.

In McAvennie’s perspective, the success of the team hinges on a collaborative and respectful relationship between the manager and the recruitment chief. The current reports of discord between Moyes and Steidten raise questions about the future dynamics at West Ham, adding an element of uncertainty to the club’s behind-the-scenes operations.
