Struggling West Ham appoint Moyes as manager

West Ham fired manager Slaven Bilic on Monday following the team's slide into the English Premier League relegation zone and was set to hand David Moyes an opportunity to rebuild his coaching reputation as the successor.

Moyes has failed in his last three jobs, at Sunderland, Real Sociedad and Manchester United, and there are major concerns that he is not the right man for the Hammers.

"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", West Ham co-chairman David Sullivan said.

But the 54-year-old Scot was sacked after less than a season in charge. "He is highly regarded and respected within the game, and will bring fresh ideas, organization and enthusiasm".

Former Liverpool right-back Arbeloa enjoyed - or perhaps endured - one season at the London Stadium during his final campaign as a professional last term. "We are all here to do the job and get West Ham in the correct position and move up the table".

"He will be telling us what he thinks we need". We need everybody with us.

Moyes, who takes over a team languishing in 18th place after two wins from their first 11 Premier League games, has struggled since leaving Everton for Manchester United in 2013.

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

One big tick for Moyes is his ability to organise a defence, and boy does he have his work cut out with this one.

"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".
