DAVID MOYES has called on the West Ham fans to get vaxed up and join him on a European tour.

He said: “Make sure you’re all vaccinated, get your passports out because we’re going to Europe!”
Moyes has turned West Ham from relegation candidates to a top six side in the space of 12 months and achieved the almost impossible – uniting a club that looked split in two at the start of the campaign.
The fans are paid up members of his fan club, players have bonded behind the scenes and now there is a good chance they can even keep Declan Rice for another year at least.
Moyes added: “I don’t think David Sullivan, David Gold or myself have got any intention of losing Declan Rice.

“We’ve just qualified for Europe and Declan’s a big part of that – and we want him to be a big part of what we do next year as well.
“I have to say a big thank you to the club for allowing me to get my teeth into the job.
“I think it’s a huge achievement from where we came from. We finished the bottom three last year and it was seen as an achievement.
“Now an achievement is being in Europe so I think this has been one of biggest steps we have ever made.

“Jumping this far so quickly has been absolutely huge. Great credit to the players, who have been brilliant from the start.
“If I have this exact team and this group of players next season then I think I’ve got a good chance.
“We’ve got a lot of hungry energetic players. I’m just hoping that I’m able to add similar characters.
“You need good players to be successful and I think the reason why we’ve been successful is because we brought in good players and this allowed others to flourish alongside.”
To even keep the same group, that means persuading Jesse Lingard to join on a permanent basis, but that may have to wait until Manchester United make a decision which could be as late as July.
Moyes added: “He’s done an exceptional job for us, but he’s not our player so we’ll see where we go from here.
“I hope Jesse ha also appreciated it, I think we’re good for Jesse.
“Maybe there’s not many other clubs where he could have done what he’s done here. I think we’ve give him an opportunity and a platform.”
