New West Ham boss Moyes has 'point to prove'

New West Ham boss Moyes has 'point to prove'

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

West Ham have turned to David Moyes to lift their Premier League fortunes - but he will also need to turn around his own declining record.

Bilic would be a popular figure to replace Kocaman, but It's now unknown whether he would want another hard challenge after his experience at West Ham.

Former West Ham defender Bilic was the fourth Premier League managerial casualty of the season, the Croatian's exit following those of Frank de Boer (Crystal Palace), Craig Shakespeare (Leicester) and Ronald Koeman (Everton).

"I feel very exhausted and want to take a break from football management".

"It wouldn't be a lot, let's face it we believed at the beginning of the season that we had the best squad of players for a decade".

Sullivan believes Moyes, 54, is the flawless choice to steer the club to safety.

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

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

"We believe David is the right man to turn things around and get the best out of the players at the club", joint chairman David Sullivan said.

"He is highly regarded and respected within the game and will bring fresh ideas, organization and enthusiasm", Sullivan added. But after Saturday's shambolic 4-1 home defeat by Liverpool saw them fall into the drop zone, West Ham's owners made a decision to take immediate action. "I hope it gives me great strength and understanding of what is required".

Moyes' first match in charge will come after the global break, a trip to Watford in the Premier League on November 19.
