West Ham’s defensive woes continued as they endured a miserable evening conceding 5 goals at home to Arsenal to fall to a 5-1 defeat.
The Hammers have shipped in an incredible 29 goals already this season and are without a win since their home victory over Sunderland back in October. The dismal run of results has seen them ship four against Man United in the EFL cup, three against Spurs and Southampton and four against Watford this season.
As such on the back of their abysmal showing last week, retired West Ham and Man United defender reportedly offered his services to West Ham as a defensive coach.
While it is unknown as to whether Slaven Bilic is receptive to the Englishman’s offer, the fans are certainly clamouring for Ferdinand to sort out their defensive issues.
Check out the reaction from West Ham fans below!
If this thing about Rio Ferdinand being our defensive coach by all means bring him in! West Ham boy at heart⚒

Would be class if Rio Ferdinand returned to West Ham as a coach. He'd teach some passion about the club. Which should be Noble/Bilic's job.

Just a general question, what more could you want than Bilic, Dicks and Ferdinand. Slaven needs to take every opportunity he gets now. #COYI

You have to be brain dead if you turn down Rio Ferdinand as a defensive coach.

Rio Ferdinand coming to West Ham as a coach would be great news for the club. Reece Oxford would learn a lot too.

West Ham should take up Rio Ferdinand offer, Julian Dicks is not doing the job as defensive coach,
Look at our defence we need help COUI
