  • Watch: David Moyes Ambushed By The Cringiness Of Andy Gray & Richard Keys

The Hammers parted company with Bilic on Monday, two days after a chastening 4-1 loss at home to Liverpool convinced co-chairmen David Sullivan and David Gold that the club needed a change of direction to stop the rot.

WEST HAM chief David Sullivan admitted the appointment of David Moyes is "a gamble".

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

Moyes, who takes over a team languishing in 18th place after two wins from their first 11 Premier League games, has struggled since leaving Everton for Manchester United in 2013.

Michael Emenalo quits Chelsea in blow to Roman Abramovich
He has had a tremendous impact on the club over the past 10 years and this is evident in everything we have achieved. Reportedly, Abramovich was reliant on Emenalo for advice - he was one of the few people that the owner trusted.

"At the moment they should be in a better position than they are, and I believe they will be come the end of the season".

Moyes has been out of work since May, when he resigned as Sunderland manager after the club's relegation to the Championship.

West Ham have had a dire start to the new season and a change was certainly needed for the club to start heading in the right direction.

He added: "We need somebody with experience, knowledge of the Premier League and the players in it, and we believe David can get the best out of the players".

But Moyes, whose first game in charge will be at Watford a week on Sunday following the global break, urged them to get behind him and his squad.

In his unveiling video on West Ham's Twitter account, Moyes attempted to rally the fans, saying: "I'm really looking forward to meeting the supporters, being in the stadium with them".

As impressive as Moyes' 11-year stint at Everton was - with nine top-eight finishes and having guided the club into the UEFA Champions League qualifiers in 2005 - he knows he can not dine out on that forever.

"I hope West Ham fans are going to see a team that is organised and disciplined", he told West Ham's official website.
