‘I’m feeling very proud that I’m back here at West Ham. But I think more importantly I’ll be looking to see what I can do and what I can make improvements to, how we can get some wins with the players and how we can get some quick wins on the field as well.

‘I do believe that the squad of players I’ve got here is a better squad of players than when I took over before, so I am looking forward to working with them.

Joint-chairman David Sullivan added: ‘David proved in his short time with the Club that he was capable of getting results and we believe that he will start moving the Club in the right direction once again.

‘We are delighted to welcome David back – he knows the Club well and he built strong relationships during that time which will be crucial for the work that needs to be done going forward.’
