New West Ham assistant manager Stuart Pearce says he hopes to hit the ground running in East London and aims to turn the Hammers’ thus far dreadful season around as soon as possible.

Pearce was appointed as one of three assistants by new boss David Moyes only days ago, with Alan Irvine and Billy McKinlay also joining forces with the ex-England international and West Ham defender to try and reverse the clubs fortunes following the sacking of Slaven Bilic.

The former Manchester City and England U21 manager says he believes his experience on the training ground can help the Hammers as they look to move out of the Premier League’s relegation zone.

“David wants to have an impact quite early on – which is quite understandable – he’s used to working with Alan Irvine and Billy [McKinlay ] before,” Pearce told TalkSPORT.

“I’m the only one he hasn’t worked with. It’s really just a case of all us finding our level and then using the strengths within our squad from there.

“We’ve got a manager that likes coaching – and three coaches as well – [so] it gives us the ability to get round all the players and work individually and in units more often maybe than when you’ve got a lighter squad.”
