Manager Bio

David Moyes left his role at West Ham United at the end of the 2023/24 season, calling time on second spell in charge of the Hammers, having been named first-team manager in December 2019.

The Scot took over from Manuel Pellegrini at the London Stadium with the Hammers sitting in 17th place.

Moyes made a name for himself at Preston North End, where he gained promotion to the second tier of English football and narrowly missed out on lifting his side to the Premier League, losing the 2001 Championship play-off final to Bolton Wanderers.

After his success at Preston, he succeeded Walter Smith as manager at Everton in March 2002. He took over the Merseyside club when they were above the relegation zone on goal difference and led them to safety with a 15th place position.

An impressive transformation of the club’s fortunes followed and they finished seventh in Moyes’ first full season in charge.

In the 2004/05 campaign, Everton finished ahead of Merseyside rivals Liverpool in fourth position, their highest ever Premier League finish to date, and secured UEFA Champions League qualification as a result.

Moyes established the Toffees in the top seven of the Premier League from 2006/07 onwards and led the side to UEFA Europa League qualification on three occasions.

He was then appointed manager of Man Utd prior to the 2013/14 campaign, but was relieved of his duties in April of that season.

After a short time out of football, Moyes managed abroad in LaLiga where he was in charge of Real Sociedad for a year from November 2014.

Moyes returned to management in England on 23 July 2016, taking over at Sunderland following Sam Allardyce's appoinment as England national team manager.

On 22 May 2017, Moyes resigned as Sunderland manager after the club finished bottom of the Premier League, before he replaced Slaven Bilic at West Ham less than six months later.

The Scot, who has won 10 Premier League Manager of the Month awards, took over the Hammers with the club in the bottom three, but guided them to 13th place by the end of the 2017/18 season.

On 16 May 2018, West Ham confirmed the departure of Moyes.

But in December 2019 the Scot returned and secured West Ham's Premier League status that season before enjoying superb campaigns in 2020/21 and 2021/22 as the club finished in sixth and seventh respectively.

On 6 May 2024, West Ham announced that Moyes would be leaving the club at the end of 2023/24 upon the expiration of his contract, calling time after four and a half years in charge of his second spell at the London Stadium.

Only Arsene Wenger and Sir Alex Ferguson have taken charge of more Premier League matches than the 697 that Moyes will have managed by the season's end.
