West Ham United boss David Moyes has said before his team take on Everton that he would like to stay at the London Stadium for 11 years.
The 54-year-old Scot was in charge at Goodison Park between 2002 and 2013 before going on to endure difficult spells with Manchester United, Real Sociedad and Sunderland.
He was appointed Hammers boss earlier this month, but only on a contract that is due to expire at the end of this season. However, Moyes hopes he can lift the club up the table and earn a longer deal in east London.
West Ham are 12/5 to beat Everton on Wednesday and 11/4 to keep a clean sheet in the match. The Hammers are 9/1 to finish in the top half of the Premier League table this term.
Moyes said: “When I came here I said that I don’t think managers tend to get the time or that period [11 years at a club]. I think it’s a case of the job – you move your managers on a lot quicker than you did.
“I remember at Everton, the first year went quite well, the second year was a bit of a dip and it’s at those times where it was probably the only time I thought you know, ‘this is the way it’s going’ [getting sacked].
“If I can get good stability and strength then I hope that it could easily be 11 years [at the club]. West Ham have unbelievable potential, unbelievable potential to be up there. They’ve got the infrastructure now.”
