Moyes Confirmed As West Ham Boss

Moyes Confirmed As West Ham Boss

David Moyes was hired as manager of West Ham on Tuesday, securing a return to the Premier League despite tarnishing his coaching reputation with disappointing spells in charge of Manchester United and Sunderland.

Bilic, who also played for West Ham, is the fourth Premier League managerial casualty of the season following the departures of Crystal Palace boss Frank de Boer, Leicester manager Craig Shakespeare and Everton's Ronald Koeman.

Co-chairmen David Gold and David Sullivan have a track record of mostly standing by their managers, and Sullivan said last month he wanted to honor Bilic's contract, which was due to expire at the end of the season, "unless things are desperate".

The exiled former Sky Sports duo left for the sanctuary of Qatar - where their lazy sexist comments weren't such a big deal - back in 2013, and have been continuing to cover the Premier League ever since for beIN Sports.

But the 54-year-old Scot was sacked after less than a season in charge.

After Moyes emerged as the leading contender to replace Bilic, many West Ham fans regarded his proposed arrival at the London Stadium with scepticism. He resigned at the end of last season and was criticized for his negativity. "I've got no doubts about that, but ultimately we have to show it on the pitch".

In the face of potential fan disgruntlement at his appointment, Moyes pointedly targeted supporters in a video message that presented him as West Ham manager. "We need their support".

West Ham has lost its last two home games in embarrassing fashion, against Brighton (3-0) and Liverpool (4-1).

"Sadly, performances and results have not been of the expected standard", Gold and Sullivan said in a statement, "and, in recent weeks, we have not seen enough indication of the required improvement to give us the encouragement that things would change and we would meet our Premier League aspirations this season".

He told the club's official website: "I would like to welcome David to West Ham United".
