David Moyes defends managerial record after West Ham fans' backlash over appointment

Joey Barton of Burnley takes a look around the pitch prior to the Premier League match between Everton and Burnley at Goodison Park

David Sullivan and David Gold, the club's co-owners, would also want to see clear signs of improvement in West Ham's footballing displays before making a final decision at the end of the season.

West Ham United are now in 18th place in the Premier League table.

The former Manchester United and Everton boss takes over from Slaven Bilic who was sacked yesterday.

Bilic was under pressure for weeks and acknowledged it was a "very logical move" to remove him after West Ham's latest big loss, 4-1 at home to Liverpool on Saturday.

David Moyes said he has a point to prove and is "hungry to get things right" after being appointed as West Ham's new manager.

"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".

The 54-year-old Moyes has taken charge of 499 games in the Premier League, most during a successful spell with Everton from 2002-13.




Moyes has been out of management since he resigned from his post Sunderland at the end of last season, having failed to prevent the northeast club being relegated from the Premier League. "He is highly regarded and respected within the game and will bring fresh ideas, organization and enthusiasm", Sullivan added.

"I hope West Ham fans are going to see a team that is organised and disciplined", Moyes said.

"We need the support, we need everybody with us".

"I'm looking forward to seeing them get right behind the team, and my team also". He will be telling us what he thinks we need.

His first game in charge will be an away trip to Watford after the global break on 19th November.

Moyes was announced as West Ham's new manager earlier today, in an appointment which has not gone down well at the London Stadium.

Hours after Bilic departed West Ham, he was already linked with the Fenerbahce job by the Turkish outlet Fotomac.
