West Ham head to Manchester City on Sunday trying to cement their place within the high 4, having responded to defeat at Wolves by reserving a spot within the knockout levels of the Europa League with victory at Rapid Vienna on Thursday evening.
Since returning to the London Stadium in December 2019, Moyes has overseen regular progress, from a profitable survival battle to ending sixth final time period, above each Tottenham and Arsenal.
But the Hammers boss needs the main target to be on sustaining that over the long run, reasonably than simply occurring a January spending spree to chase Champions League soccer.
“The team, in truth, is a long way away from the real big boys on the pitch, but we are making a really good fist of trying to do it,” he stated.
“The gamers have carried out an excellent job in attending to that stage when you suppose that two years in the past we have been speaking about how we have been going to keep away from relegation.
“It has been a really quick turnaround and we have now got to build on it.”
Earlier this month, Czech businessman Daniel Kretinsky accomplished his buy of a 27 per cent stake in West Ham.
Kretinsky, who owns Czech membership Sparta Prague, and his colleague Pavel Horsky have been appointed to the board on the London Stadium alongside joint chairmen David Sullivan and David Gold and vice-chair Karren Brady.
Documents submitted to Companies House present a “put and call agreement” is in place, that means majority stakeholder Sullivan can promote his shares to Kretinsky at an already agreed worth and Kretinsky additionally holds the choice to purchase these shares in addition to Gold’s holding.
It is known these are choices held by each events, solely in place for a sure time and never an obligation or a deal agreed for any takeover.
Moyes hopes any new funding will probably be used correctly and with the larger image in thoughts.
“I really liked Daniel’s words the other day when he talked about looking to build the club and how he would like to take it on,” stated Moyes.
“Personally, I don’t think there is a quick fix in building a football club.
“You should take it via the levels of making an attempt to get a greater workforce, get consistency and edge your gamers on as you go alongside.
“If you try to do it too quick, then it fails.”
Moyes added: “You look at Manchester City and the funds they have got, they have taken things on greatly, but even that took time – they are still trying to win the Champions League.
“There are issues in soccer you simply can’t purchase and I’m thrilled it’s that method as a result of I’d hate to suppose it was simply cash that acquired me success.
“I hope the results are down to good recruitment, good coaching and doing things correctly.”
