Report: West Ham want Viktor Skrypnyk as manager next season

Ukraine Football Fans

Is Viktor Skrypnyk destined to be West Ham's next boss?

David Moyes? Rafa Benitez? Slaven Bilic? No, the next West Ham boss may not be one of these familiar names, but instead the little known Viktor Skrypnyk.

With Sam Allardyce's future at the club on a knife edge, The Sun report that Skrypnyk is a top choice to boss the club next season.

Skyrpnyk currently manages German side Werder Bremen, who sit eighth in the Bundesliga table.

The big problem for the Hammers is that Skrypnyk was only appointed in October, and would be expected to want to continue at the club, where he was working previously as academy boss.

It would be somewhat of a gamble for West Ham to move for the Ukrainian, given his inexperience.

Bremen is his first job in management, with not even a full season under his belt and no experience of the Premier League.

Skrypnyk was a former player, earning 24 caps for Ukraine, and played for Bremen for eight seasons, retiring in 2004, having helped them win the Bundesliga in his final year.
