David Moyes Offended A Lot of Sunderland Fans During First West Ham Presser

David Moyes Offended A Lot of Sunderland Fans During First West Ham Presser

David Moyes was officially paraded as the new West Ham United manager this afternoon, and he somehow managed to offend a lot of supporters at his former club Sunderland.

Moyes was in charge of the Black Cats throughout last season, taking over from Sam Allardyce in September 2016, but he could only watch on helplessly from the sidelines week after week as Sunderland were relegated from the Premier League.

Today, when he was asked about his time at the Stadium of Light, rather than taking responsibility for finishing bottom of the table, the former Everton and Manchester United boss sort of passed the buck – by claiming he didn’t do enough ‘due diligence’ behind the scenes.

Now, Sunderland are currently 24th in the Championship table, and there’s absolutely no denying there’s plenty of issues going on behind the scenes there, but Moyes’s comments today really haven’t gone down too well with Sunderland fans:


What do you make of the comments? And is Moyes the right man to lead West Ham away from the relegation zone?
