London: West Ham named former Everton and Manchester United boss David Moyes as their new manager on Tuesday after sacking Slaven Bilic following a string of poor results that left the club mired in the Premier League relegation zone.

The Hammers parted company with Bilic on Monday, two days after a chastening 4-1 loss at home to Liverpool convinced co-chairmen David Sullivan and David Gold that the club needed a change of direction to stop the rot.

West Ham, languishing in 18th position with just two wins in 11 games, are banking on Moyes’s experience in the English top flight to lift them out of danger despite his underwhelming recent record in management. Moyes has been given an initial six-month contract.

“Do I have a point to prove? Yes, I think I do,” Moyes told the club website. I’ve managed five clubs since starting out nearly 20 years ago, starting at Preston and then going to Everton. My period at Manchester United is well-documented and I then did something I have always wanted to do by experiencing management abroad, with Real Sociedad,” Moyes said.
