New West Ham boss Allardyce targets instant promotion

New West Ham United manager Sam Allardyce is targeting instant promotion.

Allardyce has set his sights on a quick return to the Premier League after being confirmed as the new manager of West Ham.

The former Bolton, Newcastle and Blackburn boss has agreed a two-year contract at Upton Park.

Allardyce said: "It is an honour to be the new manager of West Ham United. It is a fantastic club with a great tradition and loyal supporters who deserve to be in the Premier League.

"I can't wait to begin pre-season training as I am determined to get this club back where it belongs.

"I wouldn't have taken this job if I didn't think we could bounce straight back into the Premier League. More than that, I wouldn't have contemplated the job if I didn't think there was the opportunity to build something substantial at West Ham."
