David Moyes named Manager of the Year at London Football Awards 2021

After transforming West Ham from relegation contenders to Champions League contenders, David Moyes was voted Manager of the Year at the London Football Awards.

The Scot was honored for his outstanding work at the London Stadium, defeating a shortlist that included Emma Hayes and Thomas Frank to win the award at a virtual ceremony on Tuesday night.

Since taking over in December 2019, Moyes has restored his credibility and has West Ham in contention for a top-four finish in the Premier League with five games remaining.

Last season, he kept the Hammers in the Premier League with a good finish, and this season, he has worked wonders.

West Ham are just three points behind Liverpool in fourth place, and Moyes is expected to compete for the LMA Manager of the Year award alongside Pep Guardiola and Brendan Rodgers.


Moyes received one of ten awards presented at a virtual ceremony hosted by Alex Scott on Tuesday night.

Roy Hodgson, the manager of Crystal Palace, had already earned the award for Outstanding Contribution to London Football.

The charity Willow, created by former Arsenal goalkeeper Bob Wilson, is the beneficiary of this year's London Football Awards.

Former players, major footballing organizations, and sports media, including The Evening Standard, Sky Sports, BBC, The Daily Telegraph, and talkSPORT, were among the nominees chosen by an expert judging panel from the worlds of football and media.
