David Moyes next club tips
FootyOn pick out David Moyes next club tips as the Scotsman looks to get back into management after three consecutive failed tenures.
The former Manchester United boss resigned from his post at Sunderland shortly following the end of the Premier League season.
Moyes guided the Black Cats to bottom of the league after a campaign brimming with negativity from the beginning.
So, in light of his new employment status, we’ve chosen a selection of Moyes next club tips…
Scotland – 11/4
With failure to qualify for the 2014 World Cup, Euro 2016 and now the 2018 World Cup unlikely, there will be pressure on Gordon Strachan to resign.
Perfect timing for jobless Moyes, and a change in tact by the Scottish FA perhaps? Replacing an often buoyant and enthusiastic Strachan, with a funereal husk of what used to be a respected Moyes.
No doubt this is one of the former Everton man’s dream jobs, but with three straight failures after leaving Goodison Park, you get the sense his traumatic tenure at Man Utd may have sucked the life out of a manager that reached his peak and was unable to make it at elite level.
A younger, more fresh choice would revitalise interest in the Scottish national team.
Aberdeen – 10/1
Derek McInnes is one of the favourites to take the vacant Sunderland job and the Dons are reportedly now braced for a formal approach.
Moyes could head in the opposite direction in a move that would see him take control of his first Scottish side.
Despite recent difficulties, his quality should be able to shine through at lower level.
Let’s not forget how good his Everton side was in their pomp, battling against the big budget clubs above them.
Preston North End – 20/1
When Moyes took over at Preston the club were in danger of relegation from Division Two.
However, he soon guided them to safety, before claiming promotion to Division one, then narrowly missed out on promotion to the Premier League in a First Division play-off final.
He is fondly remembered at Deepdale as both a manager and player and would likely be welcomed back with open arms.
Simon Grayson has recently emerged as favourite to take the Black Cats job, so there could be a vacancy ready to be filled soon.
Sydney FC – 20/1
If Moyes really fancies a change of scenery and a move away from the relentless scrutiny of British media, why not a switch to the sunshine of Australia.
Still a big name in football, he could follow the likes of Sven-Goran Eriksson and Luiz Felipe Scolari east (albeit not China), and out of the public eye while doing the job he loves.
Who knows, it might invigorate Moyes and set his career back on track.
At the very least it would give the Scotsman, who looks like he hasn’t seen the sun in years, a better lifestyle in a truly glorious city.
Sydney’s current manager, Graham Arnold, has recently been linked with the Australia national job.
