Former Manchester United manager David Moyes who was unceremoniously sacked by the Red Devils after a disastrous campaign is reportedly ‘tempted’ by job offers on his plate. The 51 year old former Everton manager though is tight lipped whether he would make an immediate return to managerial stinit after his unsuccessful reign at old Trafford.
Moyes claimed, “I have received some very good offers and am tempted by one or two of them. “I have not closed the door on anything and am open-minded about my next step in management – and whether it will be in the UK or abroad. Another possibility is that I may choose to have a break and enjoy watching and enjoy observing football throughout the world.”
Moyes also spoke for the first time since he was sacked by the Red Devils but thanked the fans who were in his support during the torrid times. “I never had the chance to thank the Manchester United fans for the backing they gave me during my time as manager. They were fully aware of the task I had. It was unfortunate I wasn’t given more time to succeed. And I have received messages of support from many players and lots of letters from football people around the world. It has totally overwhelmed me and given me tremendous encouragement.”
However the Scot felt he wasn’t given enough time by United to prove himself after taking over from Sir Alex Ferguson. Moyes felt it was unfortunate but claimed that he has learnt invaluable lessons from the failure.
