New Hammers boss Moyes solely focused on climbing the table

 

By Andy Sims

David Moyes insists he is comfortable with his initial six-month contract at West Ham.

The former Everton and Sunderland boss was confirmed as the new Hammers manager on yesterday, less than 24 hours after Slaven Bilic was sacked.

The priority for joint-chairmen David Sullivan and David Gold is simple - to climb away from relegation trouble - and Moyes' future will then be evaluated at the end of the season.

Moyes said: "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' appointment has not gone down well with sections of the West Ham fans, mindful that his previous job saw Sunderland relegated last season.

The 54-year-old Scot also endured disappointing spells with Manchester United and Real Sociedad.

Yet his successful 11-year stint at Everton has persuaded Sullivan and Gold that Moyes is the man to turn their season around.

"I'm thrilled to be back in the game and looking forward to getting started," added Moyes.

"The job is to get wins and get ourselves up the league.

"I'm a football supporter, everyone has opinions and everyone is entitled to that. But I think my record stands up against most. I've managed five clubs and only the recent one was the wrong choice by me.

"Hopefully I can show what I'm really about. I've probably got one of the best win records in the Premier League. The job now is to win games."

Former Hammers defender Stuart Pearce has been linked with a coaching role at the club.
