Don Hutchison makes prediction about West Ham and Champions League

Don Hutchison says that West Ham United could play Champions League football at the Olympic Stadium.

Don Hutchison has told ESPN FC that West Ham United could feature in the Champions League in the coming years.

The former West Ham midfielder believes that signing a couple of world-class players in the summer transfer window could see the Hammers finish in the top four of the Premier League next season.

“He (West Ham manager Slaven Bilic) wants guys that want to work hard for the fans, he wants guys that want to get on the ball in difficult situations, and they have got that,” Hutchison told ESPN FC earlier this week.

“If he can add to that and bring one or two world-class names in, then we could see Champions League at the Olympic Stadium next year. It would be phenomenal.”

This is the last season that West Ham will play at the Boleyn Ground, as they are moving to the Olympic Stadium in the summer.

The Hammers are progressing well under manager Slaven Bilic, and it is exciting times for the fans. Hutchison’s prediction about West Ham is bold, but there is a good chance that it will come true.

In fact, the Hammers could start life at the Olympic Stadium playing Champions League football. The London outfit’s recent results have put them in the running for a top-four finish in the Premier League this campaign.

West Ham are fifth in the league table at the moment with 49 points from 29 matches, just a point behind Manchester City, who are currently fourth and have a game in hand.
