The 60 year old English coach of West Ham United, Sam Allardyce took charge of the Premier League club back in June of 2011 but his time might be reaching it’s end as rumors are linking him with a move away from the Premier League club.
West Ham United was knocked out from the League Cup after losing against Sheffield United and in the FA Cup things weren’t so satisfying either after having sustained a 4-0 defeat against West Bromwich Albion.
Sam Allardyce has a contract with West Ham United that runs until the summer but he is not expected to be offered with a contract extension unless the club finish the season on a high note and Stewart Downing is hoping that this happens as the English midfielder wants to see Sam Allardyce remain as the coach of the Premier League club.
Stewart Downing expressed his support towards Sam Allardyce as the veteran player said: “We’d like him to stay. We don’t know what the situation is. It’s going to be resolved at the end of the season as he said yesterday I think. The only thing we can do is win games.This puts him in a stronger position to keep his job. Obviously he is disappointed today because wins help.
Losing games and drawing games probably won’t help him.’’
Burnley, Aston Villa, Everton and Newcastle United are the 4 final opponents that West Ham United has to face off in this season of the Premier League and Stewart Downing is hoping that his team can secure a few victories in these matches in order to avoid seeing Sam Allardyce being sacked in this season.
