New West Ham United boss David Moyes defends his managerial record following questions over his appointment at the London Stadium.

New West Ham United boss David Moyes has defended his managerial record following his appointment at the London Stadium.

Moyes was hand-picked by Sir Alex Ferguson as his successor at Manchester United in 2013 following an 11-year spell at Everton which saw him win three LMA Manager of the Year awards along the way.

However, he lasted less than a season at Old Trafford and was also sacked within the year in his two subsequent jobs at Real Sociedad and Sunderland, leading to questions as to whether he is the right man to steer West Ham away from danger.

"I'm thrilled to be back in the game. It is a massive club, West Ham. It is a well-established club, a well-run football club, so I am looking forward to getting my teeth into it and obviously the job is to make sure we get wins and get ourselves up the league," he told talkSPORT.

"Everybody has opinions. I have opinions when I go to watch teams and games as well. Everyone is entitled to that. I think my record would stand up to most. I have only managed five clubs in my career. I could probably give you reasons for most of them. The most recent one [at Sunderland] was the wrong choice by me.

"Hopefully, I will show everybody what I am really like. I have probably got one of the best win records in the Premier League. Support the players, support the staff. We are all here to do the job and get West Ham in the correct position and move up the table.

"We've done a contract which suits both parties, we are all comfortable with it. Let's get the job done and then talk at the end of the year."

Moyes inherits a team sitting in the relegation zone of the Premier League having won just two of their 11 outings all season.
