Moyes: I want West Ham to entertain

WEST HAM chief David Sullivan admitted the appointment of David Moyes is "a gamble".

Moyes, 54, has been out of management since he resigned from his post at Sunderland at the end of last season after failing to prevent the northeast club being relegated from the Premier League.

It is a well-established club, a well-run football club, so I am looking forward to getting my teeth into it and obviously the job is to make sure we get wins and get ourselves up the league.

Bilic was let go following a chastening 4-1 loss to Liverpool at the London Stadium on Saturday that leaves them 18th in the table and facing a fight for Premier League survival.

"He is highly regarded and respected within the game and will bring fresh ideas, organization and enthusiasm", Sullivan added.

Gold believes there are not many weaknesses in the squad and says it is the club's best for 10 years. "Yes, I think I do", Moyes told the club website.

He added: "I've managed five clubs since starting out almost 20 years ago at Preston and then going to Everton".

Moyes has only been handed a six-month contract - but he insists that suits him fine. My period at Manchester United is well-documented and I then did something I have always wanted to do by experiencing management overseas, with Real Sociedad.

The Croatian's contract was up at the end of the season.

Moyes was appointed Hammers boss this morning following the sacking of Slaven Bilic less than 24 hours earlier.

"And I feel really confident with the group of players we have got here that we can provide that".

West Ham will be the fourth club managed by Moyes in the PL, and his first match as manager, at Watford on Sunday 19 November, will also be his 500th in the competition.
