David Moyes named new manager: West Ham fans in complete meltdown

"This is a unique position for David Gold and myself - it is the first time in nearly eight years at West Ham United that we have appointed a new manager during the season".

The former Manchester United and Everton manager was officially installed at West Ham on Tuesday morning, less than 24 hours after Slaven Bilic was sacked.

Moyes has been out of management since he resigned from Sunderland at the end of last season, having failed to save them from relegation.

West Ham fans have been voicing their displeasure on social media all day, will polls and petitions set up to demonstrate just how against the idea of David Moyes running their club they are.

But who will be the next Premier League manager to leave their position?

"We need somebody with experience, knowledge of the Premier League and the players in it, and we believe David is the right man to turn things around and get the best out of the players at the club", said Sullivan.

Moyes' first match in charge will come after the global break, a trip to Watford in the Premier League on November 19.

Former Liverpool right-back Arbeloa enjoyed - or perhaps endured - one season at the London Stadium during his final campaign as a professional last term.

In the face of potential fan disgruntlement at his appointment, Moyes pointedly targeted supporters in a video message that presented him as West Ham manager.

"I think we've got a good squad".

Moyes must also improve West Ham's form at the Olympic Stadium, the team's new home since leaving Upton Park at the end of the 2015-16 season. "We need their support".

It was an ill-fated venture, with the 34-year-old looking well past his best and making only three appearances for West Ham.

He added: "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".
