Moyes returns to football management as West Ham coach.
West Ham United have announced the appointment of former Everton and Manchester United manager, David Moyes as their new head coach.
His appointment was confirmed on the club’s official website by joint-chairman, David Sullivan, who expressed optimism that the club will return to its glory days with Moyes at the helm.
Recall the premier league club, West Ham, sacked Slaven Bilic as its head coach following a string of poor performances and results which left the club languishing in the relegation zone.
“I would like to welcome David to West Ham United,” Sullivan told the Hammers’ 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.”
West Ham will face Watford, on November 19 after the international break.
