Moyes eager to bring West Ham back to glory days

West Ham manager David Moyes believes he is the man to lead the club to the next level after managing a European finish lasts season.

Moyes joined the club when they were on the verge of getting relegated but changed their fortunes by leading them to a sixth-place finish in the just-concluded campaign.

In an interview with the Daily Mail, the former Man United manager believes that there is so much much that can still come from his team as they plot to do better next season

"I actually see the opportunity to make a good club great again. There is so much more that can be done, so much more that can be improved upon. That is the bit that excites me more than anything.

"I have mellowed a bit like most of us do as we get older but I prefer to say I have become more experienced. I have had a really good career but there is part of me thinking 'is the best to come, is the best just around the corner?' And the early stuff was just my apprenticeship and this is me taking the job on properly. I am hoping that is the way it goes.

"When I think back to where I was in my first job at Preston North End, I think to myself that that was probably the best version of me because you don't carry any baggage. You are not thinking about what the supporters are thinking, you are not thinking about what the media are thinking. You manage in all your glory.

"Now there is a different world out there. There are media and there is baggage but we just have to keep building,” he said.

The Scotsman is expected to ink a new three-year deal with the Hammers in the coming weeks.
