Moyes Confirmed As West Ham Boss

West Ham manager

As the pair were joined by David Moyes - and former Middlesbrough midfielder George Boateng - on the latest edition of "Soccer Sunday", the inevitable departure of Slaven Bilic at West Ham gave them a chance to have a bit of fun.

"This is his job and he has to grab it. I have probably got one of the best win records in the Premier League".

Moyes has been out of work since May, when he resigned as Sunderland manager after the club's relegation to the Championship.

"I don't know any manager who hasn't gone through negative periods, especially in the game today".

The hope at the London Stadium will be that West Ham can measure up to Everton in terms of stature, given the money and the facilities at their disposal and the talent in their squad.

"Yes, I think I do", he said on the club's official website when asked if he has to prove himself.

Moyes has only been handed a short contract of six months to see if he is the right man to lead West Ham forward, and the 54-year-old admitted that he was okay with penning a deal of that length given the circumstances.




"Hopefully I can show what I'm really about".

"We've done a contract which suits both parties, we are all comfortable with it", he said. "Let's get the job done and then talk at the end of the year".

"West Ham supporters are a very passionate group and we need them behind us".

Alan Irvine and Stuart Pearce are set to be part of Moyes' setup.

"At the moment they should be in a better position than they are, and I believe they will be come the end of the season".

"I have no doubt he will tell us where the weakness is".

Moyes will be without Portuguese defender Jose Fonte, 33, until the New Year after his ankle surgery on Monday.
