David Moyes joins West Ham - his career in numbers
As David Moyes is appointed West Ham manager, succeeding Slaven Bilic at the London Stadium, we take a statistical look back at his managerial career.
On May 22nd, 2017, David Moyes resigned as Sunderland's manager, just one day after the end of the Premier League season.
It was an aftermath of the game between Sunderland and A.F.C. Bournemouth. Sunderland lost, and team was relegated to the EFL Championship. It was the first time in 10 years that something like that happened to Sunderland.
That incident was also the first big failure in Moyes' career as a football manager.
Moyes has started 2017 with a mistake, when he was threatening to the BBC's reporter. He was unaware of his microphone being still on, and he said: It was getting a wee bit naughty at the end... You still might get a slap even though you're a woman...
David Moyes managed 5 teams in his career: Preston North End (1998-2002), Everton (2002-2013), Manchester United (2013-2014), Real Sociedad (2014-2015) and finally Sunderland (2016-2017).
Moyes came to Sunderland replacing Sam Allardyce, and that was a big thing for him, because he was returning to the Premiere league for the first time since 2014. He is also an radio commentator for BBC Radio 5 Live.
And now, he will be the new manager of West Ham Football Club!
