Allardyce keen on West Ham stay

West Ham United manager Sam Allardyce has spoken of his desire to stay at the club for the long-term.

Allardyce has done a great job in getting West Ham promoted in his first season and now the team sit in 11th place in the Premier League knowing a few good results could lift them into a Europa League spot.

Earlier this month West Ham were named as the preferred bidders for the Olympic Stadium, something which Allardyce is eyeing up as the club will hopefully move to their new home in 2015, and if Allardyce is still in control than that will give the club stability as well as one of the longest-serving managers in the Premier League.

Talking to the Express he said:

For every manager, the sack is just around the corner but the Olympic Stadium is a nice light at the end of the tunnel.

It would be a massive achievement for anyone to stay at a club that long these days. But after a number of experiences, you get confidence in your own abilities. If you don’t have that, you won’t survive.

Big Sam is currently in the last year of his contract, but unless West Ham lose every single game from here on out and get relegated then it’s safe to say he will be rewarded with a new contract.

Having been sacked somewhat unfairly in his last two jobs, Allardyce feels he has started to win over the West Ham faithful.

Even when we’ve lost, the crowd have appreciated what we’ve tried to do. The Chelsea turnaround (in a 3-1 victory at Upton Park) was a huge booster for everybody

I think stability is exactly what we need and I believe with a few more quality additions in January the football will only get better and we wont just be good defensively but also a handful in attack.
