Former Man United Coach, David Moyes Named New West Ham United Manager

Following the sack of Slaven Bilic on Monday following strings of poor result with the Premier League club in the relegation zone, West Ham United have confirmed the appointment of former Manchester United Boss David Moyes as their new manager. 

West Ham in an official statement said: 

"West Ham United can confirm the appointment of David Moyes as the club’s manager. "Moyes will meet his new players for the first time at Rush Green on Tuesday morning, before taking charge of the team for the trip to Watford in the Premier League on Sunday 19 November."

Moyes has been out of work since May when he resigned as Sunderland boss after relegation to the Championship. Hammers joint-chairman David Sullivan said the 54-year-old Scot is "the right man to turn things around".

“I would like to welcome David to West Ham United. This is a unique position for David Gold and myself - it is the first time in almost eight years at West Ham United that we have appointed a new manager during the season. 

“We need somebody with experience, knowledge of the Premier League and the players in it, and we believe David is the right man to turn things around and get the best out of the players at the Club. He is highly regarded and respected within the game, and will bring fresh ideas, organisation and enthusiasm.

“He proved with Everton that he has great qualities and we feel that West Ham United is a Club that will give David the platform to display those qualities again.” said Sullivan 

Moyes first test will be a visit to Watford in the Premier League on 19 November.
