In the wake of the sacking of Slaven Bilic, West Ham has moved to appoint David Moyes as his replacement.
West Ham currently sit in relegation zone, 18th on the table, after their 4-1 loss to Liverpool and sacked Bilic in the aftermath.
Moyes has been appointed as their saviour, as they look to salvage the remainder of the season.
Joint-chairman David Sullivan, however, is optimistic about the club’s new appointment.
“I would like to welcome David to West Ham United,” he told the Hammers’ official website.
“This is a unique position for David Gold and myself – it is the first time in almost eight years at West Ham United that we have appointed a new manager during the season.
“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. He is highly regarded and respected within the game, and will bring fresh ideas, organisation and enthusiasm.
“He proved with Everton that he has great qualities and we feel that West Ham United is a club that will give David the platform to display those qualities again.”
