The club decided to part ways with Bilic following West Hams 4-1 defeat at the hands of Liverpool on Saturday, making him the fourth Premier league boss to be shown the door this season, following Frank De Boer (Crystal Palace), Craig Shakespeare (Leicester City) and Ronald Koeman (Everton).
Bilic’s assistants have also left the club with immediate effect except for goal keeping coach Chris Woods who has worked under Moyles before during the mangers spells at Everton and Manchester United.
With West Ham currently facing a struggle to get out of the relegation zone, the clubs Joint chairman David Sullivan was quick to install the 54-year-old Scot who has been out of work since stepping down as manager of Sunderland following their relegation last season.
When question over the appointment Sullivan said:
“We need somebody with experience, knowledge of the Premier League and the players in it, and we believe David can get the best out of the players.
“He is highly regarded and respected within the game and will bring fresh ideas, organisation and enthusiasm.
“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 weekend’s final International break of the year will allow Moyes time to get to know his players before their next fixture against Watford on the 19th November.
It is believed that Moye’s has been installed for his attitude to full commitment on the training ground and his ability to build team mentality where they believe Bilic struggled! The club certainly has the players to stay in the premier league after spending over £40 million during the summer, bringing in England’s International keeper Joe Hart and Pablo Zabaleta from Manchester City, former Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez and Marko Arnautovic from Stoke.
