The West Ham United boss has his work cut out if he is to guide his side to a successful campaign.
Hammers boss David Moyes sat down for an interview with the club's official website, and shared what he needs to hear from the club's owners, if he is to enjoy a successful and prolonged spell in charge at West Ham.
The east London outfit have endured a woeful start to their 2017/18 campaign, and are currently entrenched in a real relegation battle, after taking just 10 points from their opening 13 Premier League outings thus far.
Moyes certainly has his work cut-out at the London Stadium, and considering the fact that he has just a six-month contract, he will have to hit the ground running if he is to have any chance whatsoever of landing the job on a more permanent basis.
The Scot explained how refreshing it would be for him to hear the club's owners back him with the promise of time to achieve what he wants to at the London Stadium, as quoted by WHUFC.com:
"At the moment, managers are now down to probably 16 months in the job, maybe even less in some cases. What it means is there’s always a change of staff and a change of players. It doesn’t get to be settled and bedded down. Sometimes you need the Directors to say: ‘OK we have to go with it, we have to put things in place for the long-term'."
Next up for Moyes and co is a trip to Merseyside to take on Everton tonight, and three points will be an absolute must if the 54-year-old is to get the fans onside as soon as possible.
