In an exclusive interview with Standard Sport ahead of what he calls “one of the biggest nights in West Ham’s history”, Moyes says there is more he wants to achieve at the club despite being “hurt” and “drained” by calls from fans for him to be sacked this season.
West Ham face Fiorentina in Prague in their first European final in 47 years and Moyes’ future beyond Wednesday night is uncertain.
It has been suggested West Ham are considering parting ways with Moyes this summer, while he has been linked with the Celtic job after Ange Postecoglou took over at Tottenham.But the Scot says he would still like to be in charge at the London Stadium next season.
“Of course I would,” said Moyes. “There are too many good things about what we have done, what we should still try and do – to stop now.
“The biggest thing I can say is how much I have enjoyed working here. I see things that I would like to change, to do things slightly differently but right now there is nothing in my head except how do we win this final?”
Moyes has opened up on criticism he received from supporters this season and admitted feeling “lonely” after a “Moyes Out” banner was displayed in the away end after a win at Craven Cottage in April.
“I know football is about the here and now and you can’t look back but it did hurt and it was disappointing,” said Moyes, who kept West Ham up after taking over for a second time in 2019-20 and led the club to the Europa League semi-finals last season.
“When I saw that banner it was hurtful because it drains your power and strength to do things. When people continually question you though, it drains you. I’ve got to say it wasn’t a good time. Did I feel lonely? Hugely.
“There are a lot of things I would like to do at this club and in my head I have a vision at the way we can continue to grow.”
