Ahead of the Europa Conference League final, former Hammers striker Teddy Sheringham spoke with Betway. In this exclusive interview Teddy explains why it was the right decision by the board to stick with David Moyes.

The former England star also gives his predictions on the outcome of the fast approaching Europa Conference League final.

How impressed are you with West Ham making their first European final since 1976?

West Ham have been unbelievable, and I’m delighted for them. It’s been tough for them in the league this season, but I think it was the right decision to stick with David Moyes. I’d love to see them win it.

Should they win it, how best can they balance another season of European football with their domestic campaign?

Every team in Europe will need a bigger squad to deal with the extra games. Every manager understands how difficult it is to get regular consistent performances out of players when they’re playing and travelling so regularly.

When you’re playing in Europe, you’ve always got your eye on the next big game coming. It can be easy to take your eye off the smaller games in the league. That’s where a good manager can keep things fresh to stop that happening.

After impressing recently, how big a player will Lucas Paqueta be going into next season?

He’ll be invaluable. It can take a little while for foreign players to come in and adjust to the Premier League, but there’s a top player in there. It seems like he’s adjusted in time for the end-of-season push.

Have you got a prediction?

A tough 1-1 and I think it might even go to penalties. I’ll say West Ham to win on penalties.

West Ham fan for as long as I can remember. I was flukey enough to watch The Irons beat Bury 10-0 in my first ever game . . . True to form, West Ham then went out and signed their central defender 😬
