West Ham boss David Moyes: Norwich have a really good manager

West Ham boss David Moyes has spoken of his admiration for Norwich City counterpart Dean Smith.

The Hammers meet Norwich later tonight.

Moyes said, “Norwich have got a really good manager in Dean Smith.

“I think the thing about Norwich is that they’ve got a really good manager in Dean Smith. He’s only been in the job not for long and it takes a little bit of time to get things sorted, but if you look back at Dean did at Walsall, Brentford, and what he did in getting Aston Villa up, you’d have thought he would have been given a little bit more time at Aston Villa.

“But I’m pleased for Dean because I think he’s at a good club in Norwich. They give managers a chance and they give managers an opportunity to be there. I hope it gives Dean a chance, because it’s worked at every other club he’s been at.

“Wednesday’s match is an opportunity for us.

“Norwich City are in a different sort of fight. They’re in a fight to stay up, but I don’t think any of the teams have been cut adrift yet and I think there’s a chance for the bottom five teams.

“There’s a fight on and Norwich will see every game as an opportunity, but I see it here at West Ham as an opportunity to challenge the teams at the top and try to keep ourselves around them, annoying them, and make them think that we’re not going away.”
