David Moyes has caused utter bemusement, not just from West Ham United supporters, but from rival fans too, after his latest comments.

Moyes has actively tried to show positivity during his time at West Ham to date, but the Scot slipped up in an interview with the Guardian.

Moyes suggested that he would view his time at West Ham as a great way to view East London, if he fails at the London Stadium in a recent interview.

Sunderland's Scottish manager David Moyes gestures on the touchline during the English Premier League football match between Arsenal and Sunderland at the Emirates Stadium in London on May...

He said: "If it works, great. If it doesn’t, then I’ll see the East End of London for seven months, then I’ll go elsewhere.”

And Moyes’ comments have left football fans completely bemused.

Moyes was heavily criticised for being far too negative during his last job, in charge of Sunderland.

He will need to be cautious at West Ham, otherwise he is sure to face similar questions once again.

Moyes’ appointment has not been popular with the club’s supporters as it is, so he can ill-afford to make any more gaffes in press conference.

Moyes will take charge of West Ham for the first time at the weekend, when his new side take on Watford at Vicarage Road.
