David Moyes defends managerial record after West Ham fans' backlash over appointment

West Ham United's Croatian manager Slaven Bilic reacts after losing the English Premier League football match between West Ham United and Liverpool at The London Stadium in east London

"I think we've got a good squad", Moyes told West Ham's website.

"I'm really looking forward to meeting the supporters and being in the stadium with them", Moyes said in comments published on West Ham's Twitter feed.

West Ham, languishing in 18th position with just two wins in 11 games, are banking on Moyes's experience in the English top flight to lift them out of danger despite his underwhelming recent record in management.

West Ham fans traditionally like to see their players produce a stylish brand of football.

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.

Hammers co-chairman David Sullivan believes with his experience and the knowledge of the Premier League, Moyes is the right man to turn things around for the club.

The 29-year-old grabbed the crucial break in the fifth game of the second set, before closing out a comfortable victory. The world number 22 was by far the stronger player and completed victory with a run of four straight games.

"This is a unique position for David Gold and myself - it is the first time in nearly eight years at West Ham United that we have appointed a new manager during the season. I've got no doubts about that, but ultimately we have to show it on the pitch", he added.

Yet his successful time at Everton has persuaded Sullivan and joint-chairman David Gold he is the man to save their season.

"He is highly regarded and respected within the game, and will bring fresh ideas, organisation and enthusiasm". The 54-year-old Scot succeeds Bilic of Croatia after he was sacked Monday following a 1-4 home defeat against Liverpool on Saturday, reports Efe.

Moyes' first game in charge will be away to Watford on the 19th November.

"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".
