Newly appointed West Ham manager David Moyes has insisted that he has a “point to prove” at his new club following a string of recent failed managerial stints.
David Moyes has been out of work since May, when stepping down as Sunderland boss after a disappointing one-season spell that ended in relegation to the Championship.
Moyes also lasted less than a full year in charge of Manchester United and Real Sociedad
“It is good for West Ham, they are getting a good manager,” he told reporters at his first press conference as manager on Wednesday afternoon. “I do have a point to prove. Sometimes you have to repair things and I have a little bit to repair.
“It’s good for me, I’m back in and it’s what I love doing. I want to do well and want the team to do well. My ambition is short term. I have to win the games. I want the football to be entertaining. But I want to start defensively. We have to start there and get some clean sheets.
“First it’s about winning football games, then it’s about the style. There’s a really strong squad of players here. They certainly shouldn’t be in the position they are in.”
