West Ham have confirmed the appointment of former Everton boss David Moyes as their new manager following the sacking of Slaven Bilic.
Less than 24 hours after the club did away with Bilic, they have acted quickly in naming his replacement. Moyes has been rumoured to take over from Bilic in the past few days on an initial six-month contract, and those rumours have seen the light, although the Hammers board failed to disclose the length of the contract given to Moyes.
Moyes has had spells in the Premier League with Everton, Manchester United, and more recently, Sunderland, as well as a stint in La Liga with Real Sociedad, and he was rumoured to be interested in the Scotland national team job after the departure of Gordon Strachan last month.
His appointment has been met with some scepticism from the fans as a result of his last three managerial spells, and his chance to convince the West Ham faithful starts against Watford after the International Break.
