West Ham United have fired their manager Slaven Bilic, and it is believed that David Moyes is set to replace him, at least until the end of the season.
Bilic was under pressure since the start of the season due to a string of poor results, and Saturday’s 4-1 home thumping at the hands of Liverpool was the final straw as far as the West Ham Board are concerned.
The Hammers are now languishing just above the relegation places, and, with an international break imminent, the club hierarchy considered this a good time to make the change, allowing the new manager to get settled before the club’s next fixture away to Watford on November 19th.
Former Everton and Manchester United manager Moyes has been out of work since leaving his job with Sunderland after their relegation from the Premier League at the end of last season. Now he may be tasked with reviving West ham’s fortunes, at least until the end of the season when the situation will be reviewed again.
