Cape Town - David Moyes had admitted he would be keen to manage West Ham United if the post became available amid uncertainty over the future of Slaven Bilic.

The Hammers' struggles continued on Saturday when they soundly beaten 4-1 by Liverpool at the London Stadium to pile more pressure on Bilic.

It was their sixth defeat of the season in 11 Premier League outings, which left Bilic's side just one point above the relegation zone in 17th place.

The Croatian coach's position will be decided in the next 48 hours, and Moyes has expressed an interest in the job should the east London club make a change.

"I've had no contact with West Ham but I've always said I want to go back into club management and if the right opportunity comes around then I'll be interested," the Scot told beIN Sports.

"I've been there myself, I know what Slaven is going through at the moment. He must be hating it and wanting to get a result as quickly as he can. If it becomes available yes, but at the moment it's not available.

"I don't know if Scotland is right for me now and, as I have said, my preference is to back into club management. For me to get back in it means there's a manager going to have to lose his job and I wouldn't wish that upon anybody."

Moyes has been out of a job since stepping down as Sunderland boss at the end of the 2016/17 campaign following their relegation, although he has been linked with the Scotland vacancy as Gordon Strachan's replacement.
