While on BBC 5 Live, Neville gave his opinion on his former boss taking over the reigns at West Ham after watching them lose 4-1 to Liverpool.

He said: “West Ham look like they need a change and I think David Moyes is perfect.

“People I think are disrespectful because of a couple of bad experiences that he has had.

“He’s still a fantastic coach.”

Moyes has been without club since May 2017 after he stepped down from his role as Sunderland manager, after his side were relegated from the Premier League.

Before that the 54-year-old had an unsuccessful spell at La Liga’s Real Sociedad, lasting under a year in the role.

The Scottish manager was in charge of Manchester United for 10 months in 2013, having succeeded Sir Alex Ferguson in the role.

Moyes was only able to win the FA Community Shield during his spell with the club.

He left Manchester United in 7th place in the Premier League with four games remaining, this left United unable to qualify for the Champions League that season for the first time since 1995.

Moyes gained the Manchester United opportunity after being in charge for Everton for 11 years.

Under Moyes’ guidance Everton reached a FA Cup final in 2009 and even finished fourth in the Premier League in the 2004/05 season.

The 54-year-old is the clear bookies favourite for the Hammers role, being priced at 1/20 by Sky Bet following Slaven Bilic’s sacking.
