West Ham boss Moyes: I'm glad I came back

David Moyes is delighted he agreed to a second spell with West Ham.

The Scottish manager, who returned to West Ham in 2019 after being let go in 2018 after less than a year in charge, says that things feel different this time around.

He told BBC Sport: "I'm glad to be back. The first time round I really enjoyed myself and I was disappointed when I wasn't asked to stay on because I thought we'd done a good enough job to remain in the position.

"I admired the owners for coming back for me and realising the job we had done in the first place was a good one," he said.

Moyes guided West Ham to a 13th-place finish in the 2017-18 season, despite the club being in the relegation zone when he joined in November.

"We're in a sad world of football management at the moment where changing managers very quickly does happen.

"Managers continually have to prove themselves all of the time. Whatever you've got in the bag - experience, cups, medals - I don't know if that counts for an awful lot," Moyes added.
