West Ham co-owner David Gold insists David Moyes is “the best man available at this time” following his appointment as the club’s new manager.
“I guess that’s what’s been our main reason for choosing David [experience], and I think it’s perfect for him and perfect for us. So I’m optimistic for the future,” Gold told Sky Sports News.
“I’m pleased, I think we’ve got the best man that’s available at this time and I’m sure he’s going to take us forward.
“You were talking about his experience, that’s what we need. He came from Preston, he was very successful at Preston and he was very successful at Everton, and we think he’s the right man for the job.”
“He will be telling us [about transfer targets]. We’ve got to give him a little time, he only arrived this morning. He will be telling us what he thinks we need. It wouldn’t be a lot. Let’s face it, we believed at the beginning of this season that we had the best squad of players for a decade. But no doubt he will tell us where the weakness is.”
