David Moyes has revealed he still craves success at Everton as he marks his ninth anniversary in the post.
Moyes is the Premier League's third-longest serving manager after Sir Alex Ferguson and Arsene Wenger.
Yet, while his opposite numbers have been able to acquire a collection of silverware during their tenures at their respective clubs, Moyes is still to claim his first piece with Everton.
There has been some dissent amongst certain sections of the Goodison faithful who believe it may be time for a change.
But the proud Scot has dismissed this as he prepares to face Fulham on Saturday, who were ironically his first opponents in charge when he took the post.
"It's not fashionable to be a manager for nine years, it is fashionable to change it around and get someone in a bit trendy," said Moyes.
"I don't think that tends to be the case and the most successful clubs have longevity with their managers.
"Some people will get a bit fed up and think it is time for the manager to go but I feel it is time to kick on and get better.
"I am always driving myself to get more. Even if I had won the league two times, I would be saying I wanted to win it three times so the fact I have not done any of that means I want to try to win something."
Throughout Moyes' tenure at Everton they have struggled to find the funds that would allow him to attract the more stellar names to the club.
However, his achievements have been recognised by his fellow managers who have named him Manager of the Year three times, and he feels his longevity is a success in its own right.
"It has to be looked on as a success to stay in a job in the Premier League for that amount of time but it is not just down to me it is down to the players and a really stable board of directors, unlike a lot we see around the country," he added.
"I work hard to stay in my job, I don't take it for granted and I have to keep working hard else someone else will be there to take my place.
"My ambition is to take Everton as far as I can, I would like to win something."
