koeman westWest Ham United are re-evaluating their options as they look to make a decision on who should be the one to take their club forward next season. Feyenoord boss Ronald Koeman is believed to be one of those options, as the London based club are considering Sam Allardyce’s future.

The coach  has been on the edge since mid season, but due to his side’s resurgence after a run of poor results, the owners prolonged their faith in him. Now that the season is over, the supporters are calling for the club to sack Allardyce . West Ham’s owners David Gold and David Sullivan are also not convinced that Sam Allardyce  is the man under whom they want to take the club forward next season, and to build on this season’s 13th placed finish.

On the other hand, Feyenoord were close to winning the title, finishing only 4 points off champions Ajax, with Ronald Koeman as their coach. It’s been a good season the Rotterdam side though as they were in touching distance of the title. The club’s development on and off the pitch has come a long way since Koeman’s appointment in 2011.

Koeman announced his decision to leave the club earlier in the season, with his contract expiring, and it’s believed that the Dutchman does fancy a job in England.

West Ham reportedly see Koeman as one of the managers they want to have in charge next season. The legendary former Oranje defender has a wealth of managing experience,coaching some of Europe’s big guns in Ajax, Benfica, Valencia etc.

The Londoners will be making the final decision on their new boss soon. Does this decision involve Koeman taking over the reins at West Ham United? It remains to be seen.
