West Ham United manager David Moyes has dismissed suggestions that he will leave the London Stadium at the end of the season regardless of whether or not he keeps the side up.
Speaking to Alan Brazil on the talkSPORT breakfast show, broadcast at 06:00 on Monday, the Hammers boss came live on air to discuss his future with the ex-Scotland footballer and Joey Barton.
The former Manchester United and Everton boss signed a six-month deal with the East Londoners when he took over from Slaven Bilic in November.
And when asked whether a report in the Daily Telegraph which suggested his departure was imminent was correct he said: “No, that’s definitely not the case.
“The situation when I came in was that I said I wouldn’t make any decision until the end of the season, and I didn’t want West Ham to make a decision either.
“I said, ‘let’s see how it goes’, because first and foremost we have to make sure we’re a Premier League club
“I was happy doing that, I came in on a short-term contract, I had no problem with that and that’s the way I want it to remain.
“Anything that has been said is completely wrong – we’ll decide at the end of the season.
“The job I want to do is to make sure West Ham are a Premier League club, and I want to see what West Ham can do in the future. This club has big expectations, they are pulling in nearly 60,000 people every game and I think it can get bigger and better.”
The Hammers bagged a 2-0 win over Watford at home on Saturday and a vital three points in the Scot’s quest to keep the side in the Premier League.
They had looked to be back in danger after a dismal run of results had seen them plummet towards the relegation zone after a brief revival in the immediacy of Moyes’ appointment at the club.
West Ham now have a four-point gap over the sides in the bottom three and are now up to 12th in the table.
It was a vital maximum point haul at the weekend given that the Hammers next opponents are Liverpool at Anfield on Saturday.
Jurgen Klopp’s side are flying of late and Moyes will need his defence to be on red alert when they come up against African player of the year Mo Salah who has been grabbing headlines for his displays in a Liverpool shirt.
