Former West Ham United manager Alan Curbishley is confident that David Moyes is good enough to get the club back on track.
The Scotsman has been in charge of the East London outfit for just over three weeks and is yet to taste victory.
The new manager had a mixed start by recording a 2-0 defeat to Watford and then a 1-1 draw with Leicester City in the Premier League.
On Wednesday night matters were made worse when he took the Hammers to his old stomping ground Goodison Park.
Moyes was facing his former club Everton for the first time since taking on his new job, and it was a very unhappy return.
For a club that were lingering just two points above the relegation zone, the Toffees managed to earn a 4-0 victory.
Wayne Rooney scored a hat-trick, which included arguably the best goal of the season so far.
Despite West Ham’s current predicament, which leaves the club two points from safety, Curbishley thinks that Moyes can keep the club afloat.
The 60-year-old told the Daily Star:
“The recruitment in the summer – they brought a lot of players in – but because of injuries and a lack of form they don’t know their best first XI. I think once David sorts that out and gets them organised then they’ll pick up.”
