David Moyes Doesn't Want To Take Another Man's Job; Announces Interest In Same Job

David Moyes Doesn't Want To Take Another Man's Job; Announces Interest In Same Job

West Ham fans like to talk about the "West Ham Way". They may not be very successful, but they play football in a certain manner, going for it, "if you score 3, we'll score 4". Maybe it all died with the demise of Upton Park though.

Their move to the London Stadium has not be a harmonious switch thus far. After a 4-1 hammering to Liverpool on Saturday night, which leaves them in the relegation zone, it became clear that Slaven Bilic's time at the club was at an end.

Instead, West Ham will turn to the David Moyes to get them out of trouble, and perhaps give up on the "West Ham Way" forever. The man who had such little regard for the "Manchester United Way" will hardly be changing his style for the relative minnows of East London.

Moyes, who was last seen relegating Sunderland and threatening a female BBC reporter with physical violence, was chosen as the man to replace Alex Ferguson as United manager in 2013, an appointment that did not go well. Probably best remembered as the victim of the greatest fan interview in history, it was Moyes' dour manner and style of play which really proved to much for Man United fans. Infamously, he presided over a United team who threw in 81 crosses in a game against Fulham.

The Scot has made it known about his interest in the job on BeIN Sports yesterday.

I've always said I want to go back into club management. I am interested but at the moment that vacancy has not become available. I know what Slaven must be going through.

In other words, "I obviously won't talk about a job that another manager has, but if you were to sling him out on his arse, I will definitely take his job, no problem."

It's expected Moyes, who's on his way back from Qatar, will be appointed until the end of the season, though there has been backlash from West Ham fans which has cast some doubt on whether the appointment will go through smoothly.
