West Ham have turned to David Moyes to lift their Premier League fortunes - but he will also need to turn around his own declining record. By building a successful team, with good players playing well, and that's what we are aiming to do.

David Moyes believes he has inherited a West Ham United side who are ready to entertain the London Stadium faithful.

"I feel very exhausted and want to take a break from football management".

"He proved with Everton that he has great qualities and we feel that West Ham United is a club that will give David the platform to display those qualities again".

"This is a unique position for David Gold and myself - it is the first time in nearly eight years at West Ham United that we have appointed a new manager during the season".

But he will not be given big money to spend in the transfer market, and will have to sell to fund any major purchases.

The former Manchester United and Everton manager was officially installed at West Ham on Tuesday morning, less than 24 hours after Slaven Bilic was sacked.

"I have no doubt he will tell us where the weakness is".

Alvaro Arbeloa tweeted "better late than never" as the news broke that the struggling London club had made a decision to part ways with the manager who guided them to a seventh-placed finish two seasons ago.

Saturday's chastening 4-1 loss at home to Liverpool convinced Sullivan and co-owner David Gold that Bilic's time was up, with the pair banking on the 54-year-old Moyes's understanding of the English game to keep the club in the top flight.

Moyes insists he is comfortable with his initial six-month deal, adding: "We've done a contract which suits both parties, we are all comfortable with it. Let's get the job done and then talk at the end of the year". "Wherever you go they are known", former Sunderland and Manchester United head coach Moyes said.
