Former West Ham manager Sam Allardyce has backed David Moyes to achieve success at the London Stadium. Moyes was appointed as new Hammers manager on Tuesday 24 hours after the club sacked Slaven Bilic.
Given that his previous three managerial stints with Manchester United, Real Sociedad and Sunderland were largely unsuccessful, many fans would have had their doubts over whether Moyes is the right man to lead the club forward.
Moyes is however a very experienced manager at the highest level and to his credit, his spell in charge of Everton between 2002-2013 was fairly successful and he even famously led the club to Champions League qualification.
He told talkSPORT: “I do think he will be a success because they have got a good squad. He needs to pull that squad together and make it function in a way Slaven unfortunately couldn’t do.
“David has got hedrive, he has got the desire, to show everybody he can get back to what he was like in his Everton days.
“He has had a couple of disappointments, particularly at Sunderland last season, so I think he is hungry and I think he will sort these players out and get them functioning and winning football matches.”
