David Moyes returns to management with West Ham

Jack Kitson by Jack Kitson / 07 November 2017, 09:18

West Ham have appointed David Moyes as Slaven Bilic's replacement, with the Scot becoming the club’s first in-season appointment since Gianfranco Zola nine years ago.

The Hammers sacked Bilic on Monday, and now 24 hours later, they have a new man at the helm in Moyes, who takes up his sixth spell in management following jobs at Preston, Everton, Man Utd, Real Sociedad, and Sunderland.

Moyes inherits a West Ham side struggling down in 18th position with nine points from 11 games, a poor return which includes only two wins, while they’ve leaked in 23 goals already.

The 54-year-old has time to get to know his new side during the international break before his first match at the helm away to Watford on Sunday 19th November. This is followed by games against Leicester, Everton, Man City, Chelsea and Arsenal...

Moyes has been painted as a risible figure following a hat-trick of disappointing posts at Man Utd, Real Sociedad, and most recently Sunderland, with whom he took down to the Championship last season before leaving his position.

But, while it hasn’t gone to plan since leaving Everton, he is a manager with a wealth of experience, spending a whopping 11 years at the helm of the Toffees.

The silverware may be missing from his cabinet - only a Division Two title and Community Shield - however, he is a three-time winner of the LMA Manager of the Year award, while In 11 full seasons, his former Merseyside outfit finished in the top-8 an impressive nine times.

Joint-Chairman David Sullivan said:

“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.”
