Let’s see some of the managerial updates around the football world.
West Ham to decide on Moyes’ future after the Everton game
With West Ham United back in the relegation zone, David Moyes’ status as a club manager is currently being evaluated game by game.
West Ham supporters have been particularly outspoken about seeking a manager change since they have only earned one of the 21 possible points in the last seven games. Rafael Benitez and Nuno Espirito Santo are the names mentioned, and neither can inspire that much hope.
In the table, West Ham and Everton are now ranked 18th and 19th, respectively. Regardless of the outcome, the Hammers board will take action after facing the Toffees.
They won’t be back in Premier League action for a fortnight following their match against Everton on Saturday.
Should West Ham need a fresh manager also, two weeks is a long period. There is the trip to Derby County in the FA Cup’s fourth round, but should the worst happen to Moyes, West Ham has several coaches who can handle the match, including Billy McKinlay, Paul Nevin, Mark Warburton, and Kevin Nolan.
Even better, if they quickly hired a replacement, it would offer them an extra game at Derby County.
Leeds is considering replacing Jesse Marsch
According to Santi Aouna, Leeds United is considering bringing in a new manager to replace Jesse Marsch. Although nothing has been finalised yet, it is said that a shortlist is already being created.
Marsch, an American, has been in charge of Leeds for about a year. On the sidelines at Elland Road, he took the position of famed Argentine manager Marcelo Bielsa.
Despite retaining Leeds in the English top division on the final day of the previous campaign, this year’s results have not improved.
The management at Leeds is considering parting ways with Marsch because of their precarious situation, according to Aouna. But no choice has yet been made.
Despite being two points clear of West Ham United, who hold the final relegation slot, the Yorkshire team is now ranked 14th in the Premier League.
Aouna claims that a list of potential successors has already been created and includes a “few names.” These candidates’ identities have not yet been made public.

Mexico wants Marcelo Bielsa as the next national team coach
After a disappointing 2022 World Cup resulted in Martino’s departure, Mexico views Bielsa as their top choice to lead the national team, according to ESPN.
El Tri reportedly wants Jaime Lozano, the former Mexico Under-23s coach, and the famous Rafael Marquez as assistants.
The new manager will also be required to accept a previous national team coach advisory committee’s presence and move to Mexico City.
As co-hosts of the 2026 World Cup, Mexico is already qualified. It wants to choose a manager as soon as possible to establish a positive culture before the event.
