West Ham United midfielder Declan Rice has backed new boss David Moyes to bring the club 'back where they need to be' in the Premier League table.
Moyes was handed a second spell at the East London club, signing an 18-month contract, and got off to the perfect start by recording a 4-0 win over Bournemouth in his first game back in charge.
Speaking on the subject of the new Irons boss, Rice told the Evening Standard: "Last time, he built something and deserved to stay on, but he did not get the chance to build on that.
"But now he has got that long contract, so he can get the players he wants, because last time he did not get a transfer window.
"Hopefully, he can build something, the fans can be happy and we can go from there. You do not manage Everton for 11 years and get the United job if you are not a good manager. The lads are delighted to have him back and it is a really good appointment, because he will get us back to where we need to be."
Moyes, who will receive a £2m bonus if West Ham stay up, guided the club to safety during the 2017-18 campaign but his short-term contract was not extended.
The Scott started his managerial career in England at Everton ahead of spells at Manchester United, Real Sociedad and Sunderland.
