WATCH: Hammers train with new management

West Ham have posted a video on their official Instagram page of players training with the new management set-up that the club has implemented.

Manager David Moyes has added three new assistants to the Hammers’ coaching team, with Stuart Pearce, Alan Irvine and Billy McKinlay joining.

The trio arrive as the majority of Slaven Bilic’s coaching staff leave along with the Croatian himself after he was sacked as manager.

Irvine has worked with Moyes before at both Preston and Everton, and the Scot told West Ham’s official website he is excited to be part of the club.

“This is the sixth job I have been offered since leaving Norwich at the end of last season – some of which were very attractive – but it’s the first one that has persuaded me to accept, so I hope that says a lot about how excited I am to be here,” he said.

“The prospect of working in the Premier League, at a great club, and alongside David, meant that it was an opportunity I couldn’t resist, and I hope that I can now make a positive contribution.”

Stuart Pearce spent two years at Upton Park playing for West Ham after an illustrious career with Nottingham Forest. The former Forest and Manchester City boss had this to say on his return to the Hammers.

“The opportunity to work with David Moyes, who I have respected greatly over the years, was a big factor, as was having previously played for the club.

“It’s been many years since I was there for a couple of seasons, but I really enjoyed my time. The West Ham fans were fantastic to me and I’m looking forward to coming back.”

McKinlay, who leaves his role as co-caretaker boss at Sunderland to join West Ham, also worked with Moyes at Real Sociedad and Sunderland.
