The next Premier League manager to leave odds: Which bosses are favourites?

David Moyes said he has a point to prove and is "hungry to get things right" after being appointed as West Ham's new manager.

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.

Moyes has been out of management since he resigned from his post Sunderland at the end of last season, having failed to prevent the northeast club being relegated from the Premier League.

David Moyes' contract with West Ham has a break clause that will allow him to leave the club at the end of the current season, it has been claimed.

The 54-year-old Scot had been linked with his national team's job in the past, however, he will bring a wealth of Premier League experience, however, since he has had a mixed time at the helm.

"I'm really looking forward to meeting the supporters, being in the stadium with them", he said.

"I'm looking forward to seeing them get right behind the team, and my team also".


"He will be telling us what he thinks we need".

Moyes' appointment has been greeted with dismay by many West Ham fans, given his lack of success since leaving Everton in 2013.

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.

The Hammers are 18th in the Premier League table following their 4-1 thrashing at the hands of Liverpool last weekend.

"Sadly, performances and results have not been of the expected standard", Gold and Sullivan said in a statement, "and, in recent weeks, we have not seen enough indication of the required improvement to give us the encouragement that things would change and we would meet our Premier League aspirations this season".

One big tick for Moyes is his ability to organise a defence, and boy does he have his work cut out with this one.
