EPL: David Moyes returns to West Ham

West Ham have re-appointed David Moyes as manager on an 18-month deal.

Moyes returns to the club only 18 months after he was overlooked for Manuel Pellegrini.

Pellegrini was sacked on Saturday, following a 2-1 home defeat to Leicester City.

Upon his return, Moyes told the club’s official website: “It’s fabulous to be back. It feels great to be home. I’ve missed being here because I really enjoyed it.

“I enjoyed being around the stadium and I loved being in this part of the world, and I missed the club so I can’t wait to get started. I’m feeling very proud that I’m back here.

“But I think more importantly I’ll be looking to see what I can do and what I can make improvements to, how we can get some wins with the players and how we can get some quick wins on the field as well.

“I do believe that the squad of players I’ve got here is a better squad of players than when I took over before, so I am looking forward to working with them.”

Moyes’ first game will be against Bournemouth on New Year’s Day.
