David Moyes: West Ham United hires new manager

The Scot, appointed as the successor to Slaven Bilic at the Premier League struggler, takes over with West Ham in the relegation zone.

The Telegraph reports that the West Ham board were already of the belief that the team's fitness was of a lower level than that of their Premier League rivals, and consequentially were unimpressed that there was apparently no repercussions to the Liverpool defeat for the West Ham squad.

Newly appointed West Ham manager David Moyes has confirmed that the club are in talks with former England worldwide and Three Lions Under-21 manager Stuart Pearce regarding a backroom staff role.

The managers West Ham fans like are the ones that connect with the fans, and if Moyes wanted to do that then you'd have thought he would have thought prior to the press conference "what is West Ham's identity, and how can I relate to that?" "I can only tell eight of them just now but I'll tell the other eight when they get back [from worldwide duty]".

"She didn't discuss it at all with me", he said.

"Finally, I would like to finish by thanking the West Ham United supporters".

"I think we have enough good attacking players to cause teams problems and score goals".

"It's good for me". "I hope that the future is great for West Ham".

Moyes will prioritise defensive stability within the team - which sits 18th on the table, a point away from safety - ahead of his Hammers bow at Watford on 20 November (AEDT).

"I have a point to prove". I can only tell you I am here and I am on a mission.

"Once they know they are running and sprinting the least, they need to step up. We had a special bond when I played for the club, and that bond was still there when I returned as manager". "I have to win the games", said the Scotsman.

Adrian indicated that there was interest from former club Real Betis in the summer but West Ham were not prepared for any transfer talks.
