David Moyes believes he is deserving of a new contract with West Ham but thinks he will have no problem getting another job if his deal is not renewed.
The Scot has steered the Hammers away from danger after taking over in November but his contract runs out at the end of the season.
He has, however, underlined his loyalty to the club by revealing that he turned down a rival to stay with the London Stadium club.
“I could have joined a Premier League club during the season here, when I was West Ham manager,” he said. “I chose not to. But I’ve got other things if it’s not renewed. It’s not a problem.”
The former Manchester United and Everton boss has always been happy to wait for the end of the season before contract talks begin.
“There is nothing scheduled,” he said. “We always said even in November don’t even ask me because we won’t have an idea before the end of the season.
“I’d probably expect the week after the end of the season we’ll start seeing if things can be done. I think my record, the amount of games I’ve had, the amount of wins I’ve got, probably apart from two or three managers there’s nobody who’s got a better win ratio.
“For most of my seasons, apart from one last year, I’ve been competing at the top six, top eight. I know what it looks like, I know what you need to get there. I need to see if West Ham are going to get there.”
The Hammers take on Manchester United on Thursday before finishing their season against Everton at home, and should both results go their way, they could potentially even finish in the top 10.
