British freelancer Jim White has revealed that the newly appointed West Ham United manager David Moyes has contacted former boss Slaven Bilic for advice about his new club.
During a Television show White revealed the news that might come as a shock to West Ham fan - He’s counselled Slaven, so the two of them know each other very well indeed. Moyes has been in touch with Slaven, picking his brains on this, that and the next. So he is doing his homework is David Moyes and he is hellbent after the Sunderland experience of making West Ham work, and I hope he does it.
The former United boss was appointed West Ham boss following the dismissal of Bilic after the Hammers suffered a 4-1 defeat against Liverpool. Bilic left the Hammers having averaged 1.33 points per Premier League game, the best of any previous West Ham boss.
Despite this stat, this season the Hammers found themselves 18th in the Premier League with only nine points from 11 games under Bilic’s guidance.
