West Ham boss David Moyes backs himself at 'any club in the world'

David Moyes believes he is capable of managing "any club in the world" and wants to prove it at West Ham.
The former Manchester United and Everton boss appears to have instigated a revival at his new club who have now gone three games unbeaten following the 3-0 win at Stoke on Saturday.
Victory against Chelsea and a draw with Arsenal have also helped Moyes' side climb out of the relegation zone to 15th.
Moyes admits he is rebuilding his reputation after ill-fated spells in charge of Manchester United, Real Sociedad and Sunderland.
"I have to come here and show I can do it," said Moyes, ahead of Tuesday's Carabao Cup quarter-final away at Arsenal. "If you're any player you have to come and show what you can do. Your reputation doesn't stand for anything.
"You have to come here and try to get up and show you're capable of doing the job. I think I'm capable of doing the job at any club in the world so I'm sure I can do it at West Ham."
Marko Arnautovic has also gone some way to silence his doubters at West Ham following his £20m move from Stoke with two goals in his last three games.
The Austria international provoked fury among his former supporters, and manager, when he celebrated his goal in front of the home fans at the Bet365 Stadium by slapping the West ham badge and crossing his wrists in the London club's salute.
Mark Hughes exchanged words with Arnautovic when the forward was substituted in the second half.
"Of course he should be celebrating, I think actually people want to see the celebrations, don't you?" Moyes said.
"We're in the game for the highs and lows, everybody has the feeling of how people are. I think you've got to show it.
"I think anyone who was at the game on Saturday said Marko took a bit of a battering. I think if Marko had taken his top off and run round the ground swinging it above his head, I might have thought it was over the top.
"All he did was slide to his knees, I don't know how that in any way was a bad way to have done it."
