David Moyes insists he has the full backing of the West Ham board despite the club’s woeful form.

West Ham manager David Moyes claims he has the full support of the Hammers board despite having a bad time with the club.

The Hammers lost series of points this season and also lost to Brentford in their last game in the Premier League.

Speaking with the media ahead of the clash with Leeds United tomorrow the former Manchester United boss stated that he is not scared since he has the backing of the co-owner.

“I am feeling really good because I have great support from [co-owner] David Sullivan and the board,” Moyes said ahead of the Hammers’ trip to Leeds tomorrow night.

“They have been right behind me which is really good because you can put yourself under pressure a little bit. But overall they have been really good and really supportive in backing me.

“I think the West Ham supporters have been incredibly supportive.

“They have seen what has gone on here in the past three years, and would probably say the opposite [to the club changing manager].

“They are desperate for us to do well, and desperate for the manager to do well.

“We have to buck up, do better, play better and find a way of winning games which is they key.

“I have been in this position twice before, and we did a very good job, but I don’t think we are in that position now because we have a better team, so we just need to show that form.”

Moyes believes summer signing Gianluca Scamacca will be able to help turn the club’s fortunes round.

“We can and we will [get more out of him in 2023],” said Moyes. “It takes players time to settle into the Premier League.

“He is a young centre-forward who has come from Italy. He has a big future, we like him a lot, and he has so many good attributes, but it can take time.

“He has had a couple of injuries, and was behind when he joined us, so it might just take him a little bit longer to get used to it.”
