West Ham turned down by three high-profile managers before Bilic sacking

West Ham turned down by three high-profile managers before Bilic sacking

West Ham have appointed David Moyes as their new manager following the sacking of Slaven Bilic.

Bilic, who also played for West Ham, is the fourth Premier League managerial casualty of the season following the departures of Crystal Palace boss Frank de Boer, Leicester manager Craig Shakespeare and Everton's Ronald Koeman.

Moyes has failed in his last three jobs, at Sunderland, Real Sociedad and Manchester United, and there are major concerns that he is not the right man for the Hammers.

Does much of the blame for West Ham's woes lie with the current board and co-owners David Sullivan and David Gold? "As with many clubs in Premier League and in Europe, the manager is the one who is paying the price for it".

"I'm pleased, I think we've got the best man that's available at this time and I'm sure he's going to take us forward".

But the 54-year-old Scot was sacked after less than a season in charge.

Bilic was dismissed by the Hammers following their 4-1 home defeat to Liverpool on Saturday. "He is highly regarded and respected within the game, and will bring fresh ideas, organization and enthusiasm".

Silva is now managing Premier League rivals Watford, with whom he has only been in charge since May, Pellegrini is based in China with Hebei China Fortune, whilst Mancini is managing in Russian Federation with Zenit Saint Petersburg.

In the face of potential fan disgruntlement at his appointment, Moyes pointedly targeted supporters in a video message that presented him as West Ham manager.

Moyes must also improve West Ham's form at the Olympic Stadium, the team's new home since leaving Upton Park at the end of the 2015-16 season. "We are all here to do the job and get West Ham in the correct position and move up the table".

Some cynics may suggest that the Moyes announced came so early in the day (before 9am) to avoid the inevitable backlash from angry West Ham fans.
