Former Sunderland and Everton boss David Moyes has revealed that he is aiming to return to football management and believes that he still has a lot to offer to the game despite a disastrous spell in charge of the Black Cats last term.
Sunderland finished in last position on the Premier League standings last season and were relegated to the Championship with Moyes resigning as manager at the end of the season.
Moyes has now revealed that he is going to return to work in the near future and added that he has had several offers. He also emphasized that there are not many managers in the game who can match his experience.
He said, “I’ve had several attractive offers – one just a few weeks ago – that I gave very careful consideration to. Most of them have been from abroad and while I loved working in Spain at Real Sociedad, I want to make sure that my next job ticks all the right boxes.
“After what happened at Sunderland, I want something that gives me a decent chance to really build something. I did that at Everton. That was the club that allowed me to get myself to a level where I was recognised as a candidate for the top jobs, like the one at (Manchester) United.
“I would like to see if I can get back to that because my reputation has been a little bit bruised by what I have gone through over the last four years.
“I’m only 54. I still feel young and energised. And I am also one of the most experienced Premier League managers out there. I think I’m on 499 Premier League games – and there’s probably only three or four other managers out there who have got more top-level games than I have.”
