West Ham sack Slaven Bilic and prepare to appoint David Moyes

Jack Kitson by Jack Kitson / 06 November 2017, 11:11

West Ham are set to name David Moyes as their new manager after sacking Slaven Bilic.

Bilic became the fourth casualty of the Premier League Sack Race on Monday morning after the Hammers sent him packing, despite giving him the dreaded vote of confidence last month.

Now Moyes, who got Sunderland relegated last season, is now preparing to return to the top-flight dugout with the Irons.

We can imagine how many West Ham fans will take this news....

Bilic came under pressure throughout the previous season, but clung onto his job in the summer. A poor start to the current campaign saw him frequently feature in the top echelons of the Sack Race and now, after Saturday’s 4-1 thrashing to Liverpool, the Croatian has joined the likes of Ronald Koeman, Craig Shakespeare and Frank de Boer on the managerial scrap heap.

If, as expected, the 1/8 priced Moyes does get the job, then he inherits a side down in 18th in the table with just nine points - and two wins - from their opening 11 games. The club’s last victory dates back to September, something the Scot will be looking to change in the next game against Watford after the international break.

Moyes began his managerial career at Preston, before moving up a division to Everton, with whom he managed for 11 years. He was then infamously the “Chosen One” at Man Utd, but nine months later he’d been given the boot.

Disappointing spells followed at Real Sociedad and Sunderland, but he now looks to be on the verge of replacing Bilic at West Ham, with an appointment expected in the next 48 hours.
