  • West Ham sack manager Slaven Bilic

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 made it clear at the weekend that he would be interested in the West Ham job and the former Manchester United manager has been confirmed as the new Hammers boss.

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.

As the pair were joined by David Moyes - and former Middlesbrough midfielder George Boateng - on the latest edition of "Soccer Sunday", the inevitable departure of Slaven Bilic at West Ham gave them a chance to have a bit of fun.

"At the moment they should be in a better position than they are, and I believe they will be come the end of the season".

West Ham have turned to David Moyes to lift their Premier League fortunes - but he will also need to turn around his own declining record.

Spain issues arrest warrant for Catalan leader
Puigdemont's lawyer told media earlier this week that the ex-Catalan president would fight extradition. Mr Puigdemont said: "I have not fled , but it is impossible to prepare well".


Hours after Bilic departed West Ham, he was already linked with the Fenerbahce job by the Turkish outlet Fotomac.

But with just nine points from their first 11 games of the league season, results are the most important thing.

"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.

Moyes' first game in charge will be at Watford in the Premier League on 19 November.

Eleven years at Everton made him the club's longest-serving manager since Harry Catterick in the 1960s and '70s and brought four European campaigns and an FA Cup final.

"I hope West Ham fans are going to see a team that is organised and disciplined", he told West Ham's official website.
