Marcus Bent was not surprised to see his former boss David Moyes lead West Ham United into European football thanks to a season to remember.
Moyes is currently enjoying his second spell in charge of the Hammers, having returned to the London Stadium as Manuel Pellegrini’s successor in December 2019.
Will West Ham finish in the top six again this season?
The Scotsman’s appointment did not meet the approval of a large number of West Ham fans, with many disappointed to see the club’s owners go back for a former boss.
The Hammers are looking to build on an impressive campaign and Bent, who played for Moyes at Everton, believes the club are in safe hands despite his original doubters.
He exclusively told TIF: “He made the move to Manchester United, then went abroad and onto Sunderland, where he didn’t do too well.
“He’s gone in at West Ham and did really well last season. He is a manager who knows what he is doing as long as he has the staff and players behind him.
“He is doing really well and I’m pleased for him.”
