London, 7 November 2017 (MIA) - David Moyes was hired as manager of West Ham on Tuesday, securing a return to the Premier League despite tarnishing his coaching reputation with disappointing spells in charge of Manchester United and Sunderland, AP reports.
Moyes replaced Slaven Bilic, who was fired on Monday, with West Ham's board wanting a manager with proven Premier League experience as the team battles to pull clear of the relegation zone.
West Ham is in third-to-last place in the Premier League after 11 games.
The 54-year-old Moyes has taken charge of 499 games in the Premier League, most during a successful spell with Everton from 2002-13. Only Alex Ferguson, Arsene Wenger and Harry Redknapp have managed in more.
"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," West Ham co-chairman David Sullivan said. "He is highly regarded and respected within the game, and will bring fresh ideas, organization and enthusiasm."
Those were qualities he couldn't deliver at United or Sunderland, though.
After leaving Everton, Moyes lasted only 10 months as Ferguson's hand-picked replacement at United before getting fired. sk/11:16
