Pundit and former West Ham forward Craig Bellamy has told Sky Sports' The Debate that he thinks David Moyes seems more 'bullish' with the Hammers than he ever did with Sunderland.
Having been thumped 4-1 by Liverpool on Saturday evening, West Ham took the decision to sack manager Slaven Bilic on Monday, after a turbulent 18 months.
West Ham wasted no time in finding Bilic's replacement, as the Hammers landed David Moyes on a contract until the end of the season on Tuesday.
The Scot, 54, enjoyed a superb 11-year spell with Everton having joined from Preston North End in 2002, with his exploits at Goodison Park earning him a 2013 move to Manchester United as Sir Alex Ferguson's replacement.
Moyes' career has nosedived since, lasting just 10 months at Old Trafford, then lasting just a year at Real Sociedad in Spain, before suffering relegation with Sunderland last season.
Moyes now has one last chance to rebuild his reputation as a top manager, but his appointment has not gone down well with Hammers fans, who feel that the club may be doomed under Moyes' stewardship.
Now though, former West Ham forward and current pundit Craig Bellamy has told Sky Sports' The Debate that he thinks Moyes is already showing one major difference from his time at Sunderland – more bullishness.
Bellamy suggested that Moyes' interviews as Sunderland boss were draining last season, but he know appears to be back to his Everton best, adding that he has proven over the years that he is a good manager, but he does understand the scepticism from fans.
“I do understand it, but that was bullish, he was back - I didn’t see that at Sunderland,” said Bellamy. “I felt that every interview drained me, I don’t know what he was doing to his players, and he just didn’t look himself. That was the best I’ve seen him for a good few years, and I’m glad because he’s a good manager. He’s proved it in the years at Everton, the job he did there was brilliant, and that’s why he end up getting the Manchester United job,” he added.
