West Ham United have given David Moyes another three years to build on the success he recorded in the just concluded 2020-2021 season.
The 58-year-old Scottish tactician who has coached clubs like Manchester United and Everton did the unthinkable with West Ham United in the 2020-2021 season. He led the club to top the Premier League table at some point in the season before they ended up on the 6th spot, two points below 4th placed Chelsea.
In the history of West Ham United, the club has never finished a season with points as high as 65 points in 38 games. David Moyes achieved that with West Ham after recording 19 wins, 8 draws, and 11 defeats.
At the end of the season, the club was proud that they were able to get a Europa League spot even though the club thought they would get a top-four finish due to their performance.
With their record-breaking performance, David Moyes who has been with West Ham since 2019 after the sacking of Manuel Pellegrini had to be given three years contract extension to continue his work at the club.
This means that Moyes would continue to coach the London-based club until the end of the 2023-2024 season all things being equal.
“I am delighted to have committed my future to West Ham United,” said Moyes.
“This is where I want to be and I’m happy. I’m excited to be given this opportunity to build on what we all have already achieved here. The owners and I are fully aligned with how we want to keep developing and improving the football club.
“The board and everyone at the club has been fantastic to work with, giving me great support and I feel that we are all united in what we want to achieve in the coming years and how we might be able to achieve those things…
“We have made tremendous progress in the past 15 months and that has been a collective effort from everyone at the club.
“The players have been superb but the challenge is for our standards to continue developing.”

🗣 David Moyes on signing his new long-term contract…
Before David Moyes became the coach of West Ham United in 2019, he was at the club during the second half of the 2017-2018 season. He spent just seven months before he was allowed to go.
Then, Everton didn’t deem it fit to extend his contract despite helping the club avoid relegation. Now, he is seen as one of the best things that have ever happened to the club.
A statement from the joint-chairmen of the club, David Sullivan and David Gold read: “This is fantastic news and we are delighted that David has committed his long-term future to the club, ensuring great stability going forward.
“His strong work ethic and determination to build success in the right way have proved a perfect fit for West Ham United, and we are all aligned with what needs to be done to keep progressing and improving.
“The experience of the past 12 months has created a fantastic unity throughout the club and we are very excited about what the future holds for our supporters.”
