Ex-Manchester United Boss Named New West Ham Coach
Former Manchester United boss David Moyes has been named as West Ham United's new manager.
Slaven Bilic was sacked on Monday afternoon following a string of poor results, including the club's latest defeat, a 4-1 loss to Liverpool over the weekend.
The Hammers have now confirmed that Moyes, who succeeded Sir Alex Ferguson at Old Trafford but was sacked without completing a year at the club, will take over the reins for the rest of the season.
"I would like to welcome David to West Ham United," joint chairman David Sullivan told West Ham's official website.
"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."
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.
