West Ham boss David Moyes is not worried about the state of his contract, despite it expiring at the end of the season.

The former Everton and Man Utd boss first joined West Ham back in November 2017. But he left the club at the end of the 2017/18 campaign.

He was replaced by Premier League winner Manuel Pellegrini, who guided the Hammers to tenth place in 2018/19.

But West Ham had a poor start to the season last year. The former Man City boss left the club in December 2019.

The Hammers were in the middle of a relegation battle, and Moyes was brought in for his second spell at the club to steady the ship.

He did just that as the Hammers finished 16th and five points above the relegation zone. West Ham have carried on this momentum into this season, as they have started the new campaign strongly.

They have picked up convincing victories over Leicester and Wolves, while also drawing against Tottenham and Man City in their last four games.

The games are not getting any easier for Moyes and his team, as they face Liverpool at Anfield on Saturday.

The Scotsman’s contract expires at the end of this season. During his press conference, as cited by Football London, Moyes refused to be drawn on contract talks:

“I am really enjoying West Ham. It is a great club, I have a good relationship with the owners. I think we are trying to put things in place not just for now but for the future as well.

“But look, there isn’t any pressure on anybody when the time is right. Let’s wait and see, we have only won two and drawn two so let’s see what happens over the next few months.”
