West Ham United slated by pundit for hiring David Moyes

There has been a quick turnaround at West Ham United, with David Moyes replacing manager Slaven Bilic.

The former Everton and Manchester United coach was brought in on Tuesday, just one day after the East London outfit parted company with Bilic.

The writing was on the wall for the Croatian given that he had guided the Hammers to just two wins in 11 Premier League games.

The final nail in the coffin was on Saturday when his team lost 4-1 to Liverpool at the London Stadium – their sixth league defeat of the campaign.

Moyes has now taken the reins, but early indications suggest that he will have to win over plenty of fans.

The Scotsman arrives at the Hammers with a recent CV of failure having not spent more than a year at a club since leaving Everton in 2013.

Moyes was Sir Alex Ferguson’s successor at Manchester United, but he was unable to make his mark and went on to have spells in charge of Real Sociedad and Sunderland, who were relegated from the top flight under his management last season.

Former footballer Adam Virgo, who previously played for Brighton & Hove Albion, took aim at West Ham’s chairmen and board for not going for a manager already in work.

The pundit used Simone Zaza’s failed spell at the London Stadium as an example.
