West Ham United are in dire straits at the moment in the Premier League and have been stranded firmly in the relegation zone for some time now. The Hammers have found it difficult to bag points and have thrown many away, to fall into a very scrupulous position in the league table.
This has taken a toll on their manager Slaven Bilic, who was sacked yesterday, after failing to win more than just two matches so far this season. The East London club, however, was quick to find a replacement for him and have got former Everton and Manchester United manager David Moyes to sign for them for the rest of the season.
The 54-year-old Scott has not found it easy in the coaching arena since leaving the Merseyside and has tried his luck is the La Liga as well. It will be his first job after he faced the sack following the relegation of his former club Sunderland from the top tier in the last term.
Moyes made a name for himself between 2002 and 2013 while managing the Toffees and bringing glory to the club in plenty. Based on his success with the Blue of Merseyside, the gaffer was handed the charge of managing the Red Devils after the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson in 2013.
However, his tenure at Old Trafford was absolutely miserable and the manager was replaced by the Dutchman Louis Van Gaal in 2014. He was unable to have a major impact on the 13 times Premier League Champions and eventually headed to Spain to take up the top job at Real Sociedad in the same year.
Moyes’ magic was starting to fade away and the Scottish mastermind was not able to keep his job in the Spanish outfit as well. He parted ways with Real Sociedad in 2015 and came back to England, where he was appointed the head coach of the Black Cats, who were playing in the Premier League at the time.
The 54-year-old failed to help his side keep their place in the top flight, as the Wearside club were relegated into Championship, which also led to his sacking and he found himself out of job once again.
However, the East London club are the latest to show confidence in his abilities and appoint him as their man in charge. Now it is to be seen whether he can live up to their expectations and help them out of the danger zone or once again, succumb to the pressure to lose his job in the near future.
