Pellegrini who joined West Ham in May 2018 with the former Manchester City manager was sacked after guiding the club to a 10th-placed finish in his first season in charge.
West Ham has appointed the 55-year-old David Moyes on an 18-month deal and the New manager is expected to take charge of the New Year’s Day home game against Bournemouth at London Stadium.
Reacting to the appointment, David Moyes says;
I’m feeling very proud that I’m back here at West Ham, but more importantly I’ll be looking to see what I can do, what I can make improvements to and how we can get some wins with the players.
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.
I think there’s got to be a short-term goal for us just now to get the wins to get us away from the wrong end of the league and what we’re going to do over the next six months, then what we’re going to do over the next period as well. The start is really focusing on the immediate games.
