David Moyes has been named as the new West Ham manager, Moyes who has been out of work since May after he resigned as Sunderland boss said he has a point to prove and is “hungry to get things right”.
The former Everton and Manchester United boss replaces Slaven Bilic, who was sacked on Monday with the Hammers currently in the relegation zone.
West Ham joint chairman David Sullivan stated that David Moyes is “the right man to turn things around”.
He added: “We need somebody with experience, knowledge of the Premier League and the players in it, and we believe David can get the best out of the players.
“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’ first game in charge will be at Watford in the Premier League on 19 November.
He added: “I’ve managed five clubs since starting out nearly 20 years ago 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.
“It’s only been the last job where I feel it wasn’t a good move and I didn’t enjoy the experience. So I’m hungry to make sure I get things right now.
“I don’t know any manager who hasn’t gone through negative periods, especially in the game today. I hope it gives me great strength and understanding of what is required.”
