West Ham United currently find themselves in a whole world of trouble.
Hammers' stopper Joe Hart sat down for an exclusive interview with the club's official website, and shared how he felt that there was an uncomfortable situation when Slaven Bilic was in charge at West Ham.
The east Londoners are currently in a whole world of trouble, and sit precariously in 18th position in the table, after a woeful return of just 10 points from their opening 13 league outings.
Bilic was in charge for the majority of the Hammers' campaign, and was relieved of his duties at the start of this month.
David Moyes was brought in to replace the Croatian, but he was a far from popular appointment amongst the London Stadium faithful.
Hart though, explained how the Scot has lifted morale amongst the players since arriving at the club a couple of weeks ago, hinting that things had become uncomfortable under Bilic, as quoted by WHUFC.com:
"The manager’s primary focus has been to get us back into a good place. That’s no disrespect to Slaven [Bilic], because I really enjoyed the short time I worked with him and he is a good man, but I just felt there was an uncomfortable situation for everyone. So, the decision got made and David has come in and it’s quite a simple job in his eyes, and in our eyes, which is getting us playing as a team in a strong formation and making us accountable for mistakes and not being in position, and that’s how we’re playing at the moment."
Moyes' men travel to Merseyside tonight to take on Everton, and with the Toffees sitting just two points above them in the table, a win will be of absolute paramount importance to their hopes of avoiding relegation this season.
And Hart will have to be at his very best, if they are to have any chance whatsoever of doing just that.
