David Moyes brings vast experience, a relentless work ethic and passionate leadership to the role of West Ham United manager.
The Scot has managed more Premier League matches than any other coach bar Sir Alex Ferguson, Arsene Wenger and Harry Redknapp, winning nearly 250 top-flight matches during a career that has seen him lead Everton, Manchester United, Sunderland and, in two spells since his initial appointment in November 2017, West Ham.
After a long playing career with the likes of Celtic and Preston North End, Moyes guided the latter to the Second Division title in 2000, Moyes has rightly established a reputation as one of the most respected and diligent managers of the 21st century.
In March 2002, he moved to Everton, where he oversaw an impressive transformation of the club’s fortunes followed.
The Blues finished seventh in Moyes’ first full season in charge, 2002/03, before achieving fourth position, their highest ever Premier League finish to date, and securing Champions League qualification in 2005.
In eleven full seasons at Everton, he achieved five top-six finishes, guided the Toffees to the 2009 FA Cup final and won three LMA Manager of the Year and ten Premier League Manager of the Month awards.
Those achievements saw him hand-picked by Sir Alex Ferguson to succeed his fellow Glaswegian as manager of Manchester United. There, he achieved a better win percentage than the likes of Matt Busby, Louis van Gaal and Ron Atkinson.
After spells with Sunderland and Spanish club Real Sociedad, who he led to an historic win over Barcelona, Moyes spent time further expanding his football knowledge while working as a technical advisor for UEFA.
He was initially appointed West Ham manager on a short-term contract in November 2017, with the Hammers then struggling in the Premier League relegation zone.
Using all of his experience, knowhow and man-management skills, the Scot guided the Irons to safety with two games to spare, having got the very best out of the likes of Marko Arnautovic, Manuel Lanzini and Arthur Masuaku.
He returned to London Stadium on an initial 18-month contract in December 2019 and successfully led the Hammers to Premier League safety for a second time, despite the added challenge of dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic and a three-month postponement to competitive football in March 2020.
The 2020/21 season was a huge success, with the Irons winning a record 19 Premier League matches to amass a record 65 points and a record +15 goal difference on their way to a sixth-place finish and qualification for the UEFA Europa League group stage.
There, his team kicked on again, defeating Dinamo Zagreb, KRC Genk, Rapid Vienna, Sevilla and Olympique Lyonnais to reach the Europa League semi-finals, and finishing seventh in the Premier League to secure European qualification for a second straight year.
The Hammers finished seventh in the Premier League too, and qualified for the UEFA Europa Conference League. There, they won a record ten consecutive matches to reach the knockout stages.
