‘Win the next one’ – David Moyes discusses West Ham’s intentions for the upcoming season

David Moyes is determined to achieve immediate success in the Europa League following West Ham’s 43-year trophy drought coming to an end, writes the Evening Standard.

The Hammers’ triumph over Fiorentina in Prague, courtesy of a late goal from Jarrod Bowen, secured the Europa Conference League title and sparked widespread celebrations. This milestone not only marks the first major silverware of Moyes’ 60-year-long career but also signifies another remarkable step forward for the club under his leadership.

Although the season presented challenges for West Ham, with Premier League safety only secured in the final month of the campaign, their impressive European performances emerged as a significant highlight during Moyes’ second tenure. Prior to lifting the Conference League trophy, the team reached the semi-finals of the Europa League, ensuring their participation in Europe’s secondary club competition for the upcoming season.

Amid speculations that Moyes might depart the club before that historic night in the Czech capital, co-chairman David Sullivan confirmed that the Scottish manager would remain at West Ham for the following season. The club’s progress under Moyes has solidified his position, and he aims to build on their recent success by making an impact in the Europa League once again.

He said: “It’s very hard to compete at the top end every season, but all you can do is try to do your best every season and that’s what we do, and next season that’s what we’ll do,”

“We want to be involved in these competitions, especially when some big clubs are involved in them in them and didn’t win them, so for the players to play Thursday/Sunday and get a trophy at the end of it is some achievement. Last night is gone and we’ll have to win the next one now!”
