Former Everton and Manchester United manager David Moyes has revealed that he is ready to return to management after six months out of work, the Daily
The Scot led Everton for 11 years and re-established them as a side that competes regularly in the top half of the Premier League despite budgetary constraints. His work at Goodison Park was recognised by Sir Alex Ferguson, who chose him as his successor at Man Utd in May 2013.
Despite signing a six-year contract upon arrival, Moyes lasted just nine months after a miserable first season in charge, where the club finished seventh as defending champions and failed to qualify for Europe for the first time in 20 years.
Since leaving Old Trafford, Moyes has claimed that he has rejected several job offers, and although he insists there is no rush, the 51-year-old believes the time is now right to return to football management. “I’m ready to go,” he said
“I’ve no time-scale. I’m enjoying the break but I’m a football man and I want to work. I feel my best years are ahead of me and I do feel I am still a young manager. I’ve lots to learn and lots I want to put into practice.”
“I think I am better-equipped to take over a job like Manchester United now than even when I did take over because I’ve had a chance to see what happens, what goes on. Picking my next job is vitally important, I’m well aware of that. I’ve an open mind as to what it will be and where it will be – if it’s in the Premier League or in the UK, that’s fine, but if it’s abroad then I’m okay with that.’
