West Ham reappoint Moyes
Premier League strugglers West Ham United have turned to manager David Moyes for the second time in a bid to save their season.
Former Manchester United boss, Moyes, replaced Manuel Pellegrini, who was sacked after a 2-1 defeat to Leicester on Saturday that left the team just one point above the relegation zone.
The 56-year-old guided West Ham to safety during his six-month spell with the club in the 2017-18 season and has now been brought in to achieve the same target.
“It’s fabulous to be back,” said Moyes in an official club statement.
“I’m feeling very proud that I’m back here at West Ham. But I think more importantly I’ll be looking to see what I can do and what I can make improvements to.
“I do believe that the squad of players I’ve got here is a better squad of players than when I took over before, so I am looking forward to working with them.
Moyes won nine out of 31 games during his previous stint with the club and was not offered a new deal despite ensuring their Premier League survival.
