Moyes on West Ham: I couldn’t have done a better job

David Moyes has revealed that he was disappointed not to be given the West Ham job on a full time basis, with the Scottish manager insisting that he could not have done a better job last season for the East London outfit.

The former Everton, Manchester United and Sunderland boss took over the Hammers hot seat from Slaven Bilic last November, with West Ham struggling around the relegation places.

Moyes steadied the ship somewhat and ultimately guided the Hammers to a 13th place finish in the Premier League and the 55-year-old has revealed that he would liked to have been given a chance to continue as the clubs manager.

“I have to say we couldn’t have done a better job.” Moyes told the Sun.

“That’s why I was disappointed not to be offered the opportunity to stay. I’d taken it to the end of the season to see how I did and how the owners felt.

“From where they were to get them living and breathing again, was probably as successful a season as I could have had.

“By the end I’d decided I wanted to stay if the owners provided me with the funds to strengthen the squad. It disappointed me I didn’t at least get a chance to talk about it.”
