David Moyes has promised to give West Ham “no choice” but to extend his 18-month contract after returning for a second spell as manager.
Moyes was let go by co-owners David Gold and David Sullivan after the 2017-18 season despite leading the club to survival and a 13th-place finish.
Asked after returning to succeed Manuel Pellegrini if there were any hard feelings, Moyes said: “No, because things were done correctly – I wasn’t taken on and I was told that.
“I was disappointed, I’ve said that, but I’ve got another chance to go again.
“I think it says a lot about the owners, they thought the job I did was good enough to give me another opportunity.
“This time I’m going to make it so there’s no choice but to renew. There’s a clause in there and I’m going to make it impossible to ignore that, that’s my plan.”
