Hammers boss David Moyes says he wants the club’s owners to spend money in two key areas he feels need improvement at West Ham.

West Ham have been making rapid progress on the pitch over the last two years under their great Scot.

West Ham’s rise has also attracted new investment.

Czech billionaire Daniel Kretinsky purchased a 27 per cent stake in the east London outfit, becoming West Ham’s second biggest stakeholder in the process.

Many West Ham fans hope and believe Kretinsky will eventually push for a full takeover.

Most supporters are waiting in anticipation to see if Moyes is backed in the transfer market with Kretinsky on board.


The manager will clearly want to improve the team if possible.

But he says he wants to see the owners spend money in two key areas to improve West Ham in the long term – the training ground facilities and the club’s academy.

“I think what I felt I could bring to West Ham was an idea of how to build a Football Club and how to grow it,” Moyes told whufc.com.

“I’m only just right at the start of that journey, but we’ve started really well and I hope now that we can try and get another layer.

“It doesn’t always come right away, they don’t always move on, but for us to try and remain consistent, like we did last year, finishing in the top half of the league, would be a step in the right direction.

“There’s other things I’d like us to try and grow.

“I want us to have a better youth team, I want us to make sure we do much better things around the training ground and we prepare as correctly as we can, so I think there’s a lot of things we can do to keep moving along.”
