David Moyes believes he will do so well in the 18 months at the West Ham that they will have no option but to renew his contract
The 56-year-old Scotsman, whose reputation took a battering during a deeply unsuccessful spell as Manchester United boss in 2013-14, signed an 18 month contract with the Premier League strugglers on Sunday.
Moyes was let go by co-owners David Gold and David Sullivan after the 2017-18 season despite leading the club to survival and a 13th-place finish.
He was replaced by Manuel Pellegrini, whose tenure came to an end on Saturday following the 2-1 home defeat by high-flying Leicester City which left the Hammers fourth from bottom just a point above Aston Villa.
Moyes, who established his reputation with Everton before the demoralising spell at United, said he was not bitter about being let go in 2018.
“No, because things were done correctly — I wasn’t taken on and I was told that,” he said on Monday at a press conference ahead of Wednesday’s home game with fellow strugglers Bournemouth.
“I was disappointed, I’ve said that, but I’ve got another chance to go again.
“I think it says a lot about the owners, they thought the job I did was good enough to give me another opportunity.
“This time I’m going to make it so there’s no choice but to renew.
“There’s a clause in there and I’m going to make it impossible to ignore that, that’s my plan.”

Moyes, who also had unsuccessful spells at Spanish side Real Sociedad and Sunderland, said he had not hesitated when he received a phone call from the owners.
“It was very simple when they called me,” he said.
