'I think I'm capable of doing the job at any club in the world', says David Moyes
The West Ham boss is enjoying the side’s unbeaten run in the league.

DAVID MOYES BELIEVES he can take on any management job in the world as he looks to continue West Ham’s unbeaten run against Arsenal in the League Cup on Tuesday.

After picking up one point from his first four games in charge since replacing Slaven Bilic as boss, Moyes’ side have seemingly turned a corner. They beat Chelsea, drew with Arsenal and put three past Stoke at the weekend.

The good run means the club have moved up to 15th in the Premier League table and can look forward to a relatively kind festive period with upcoming assignments against Newcastle, Bournemouth and West Brom.

Ahead of the game against the Gunners, Moyes reflected on the Hammers’ recent good run.

“I think I’m capable of doing the job at any club in the world so I’m sure I can do it at West Ham,” he said.

I have to come here and show I can do it. You have to come and show what you can do. Your reputation doesn’t stand for anything. You have to come here and try to get up and show you’re capable of doing the job.”

After being given the most high-profile job in Europe in 2013, Moyes struggled at Manchester United and was relieved of his duties just 10 months into a six-year deal.

From there, he moved to La Liga and took the reins at Real Sociedad but it proved another ill-fated spell and he was gone after 364 days in charge.

His time at Sunderland ended with the club being relegated to the Championship at the end of last season and Moyes was out of football until surprisingly being parachuted in at West Ham in early November.
