Mark Hughes has refused to rule himself out of the running for the top job at Everton, should David Moyes leave to become Manchester United’s new manager, according to The
Sir Alex Ferguson announced his retirement from his Old Trafford post on Wednesday morning, with Toffees manager Moyes being widely tipped to replace him.
And Hughes, who was sacked by Queens Park Rangers earlier in the season, has now expressed his interest in rejoining the club he played for between 2000 and 2002.
Hughes said: “It’s not happened yet but it’s obvious if one manager leaves there is an opportunity for other managers who are currently out of work, which includes myself.”
“It (Everton) is a great club, a club I had the fortune to play for and I really enjoyed my time there…It’s an opportunity for somebody and I back myself for most jobs in the Premier League.”
The former Wales manager, 49, has been out of work since November, having been dismissed by QPR after a run of 12 matches without a victory at the start of the campaign.
