David Sullivan today admitted West Ham have made insufficient progress on the pitch in the decade since he and David Gold took over.

Sullivan also said Manuel Pellegrini, sacked last month, “wasn’t the best fit for the club despite being a good manager” and that “perhaps it was a mistake to let David Moyes go the first time.” Moyes, who guided West Ham clear of relegation on a short-term deal in 2018, has been re-appointed on an 18-month contract following Pellegrini’s exit.

West Ham are in 16th in the Premier League, the same position in which they found themselves when Sullivan and Gold took over on January 19, 2010.



“The easy option this time around would have been going for someone new but we feel David is the right ­manager for West Ham.

Hindsight is a ­wonderful thing and perhaps it was a mistake to have let David Moyes go the first time.

Sullivan said: “I would like talk about what we have achieved on the pitch but unfortunately, despite our investment and best efforts, we have not made the progress we all expected under the club’s most high-profile and proven manager [Manuel Pellegrini], having brought in a director of football [Mario Husillos].

Just days before their 10th anniversary as owners, Sullivan has told Standard Sport he has regrets about some of the managers the pair have appointed in that time.
