David Moyes admitted that he has a point to prove after West Ham gave the 54-year-old a chance to establish himself at the club by appointing him as their new manager on an initial six-month contract that could turn into a longer deal.
But he says he and joint chairman David Sullivan will sit down with Moyes to discuss the areas the Scot believes needs improving. "As with many clubs in Premier League and in Europe, the manager is the one who is paying the price for it". "So I'm hungry to make sure I get things right now".
The final nail in the West Ham coffin for Slaven Bilic was Saturday's 4-1 hammering at the London Stadium by Liverpool. "I've got no doubts about that, but ultimately we have to show it on the pitch". "He is highly regarded and respected within the game and will bring fresh ideas, organization and enthusiasm", Sullivan added.
In his unveiling video on West Ham's Twitter account, Moyes attempted to rally the fans, saying: "I'm really looking forward to meeting the supporters, being in the stadium with them".
"We need the support, we need everybody with us". He will be telling us what he thinks we need.
Moyes' first game in charge - his 500th in the Premier League - will be against Watford after the global break.
Moyes' appointment has been greeted with dismay by many West Ham fans, given his lack of success since leaving Everton in 2013.
Hours after Bilic departed West Ham, he was already linked with the Fenerbahce job by the Turkish outlet Fotomac.
