It is official, David Moyes is the new boss of West Ham. The former Everton and Manchester United boss revealed that while he has started managing clubs 20 years ago, he still has a point to prove.
Moyes replaced Slaven Bilic following a string of poor results that left West Ham in the relegation zone.
Bilic was sacked on Monday after losing at home to Liverpool with a 4-1 score which made David Sullivan and David Gold decide that they need to make a management change.
West Ham only won two games in their 11 games and are in the 18th position.
The club are relying on Moyes experience to lift them out of the danger zone despite his underachievement in management.
Moyes had a great managerial career when he was at Everton but was not able to do well during his time at Manchester United, Real Sociedad and Sunderland.
“Do I have a point to prove? Yes, I think I do,” Moyes told West Ham website.
“I’ve managed five clubs since starting out nearly 20 years ago, starting at Preston and then going to Everton.
“My period at Manchester United is well-documented and I then did something I have always wanted to do by experiencing management abroad, with Real Sociedad.”
