David Moyes: Why I’d accept Man United job again
David Moyes explains why he would accept the Mancheser United position in the future
David Moyes says that he would accept the Manchester United job again despite his disastrous 11-month reign at Old Trafford.
The Scot was sacked in April 2014 less than a year after Moyes was named as Sir Alex Ferguson’s successor following United’s 13th Premier League title success.
There are very few managers in the world who wouldn’t want to manage Manchester United
Louis van Gaal replaced Moyes but the Dutchman is currently coming under pressure after an eight-game winless run in all competitions over the past couple of months.
The former Everton manager is currently unemployed after his spell in charge of La Liga side Real Sociedad was cut short after a disappointing end to the season.
Speaking on The Clare Balding Show, Moyes admitted that he wouldn’t be able to turn down the United job if he was offered a second chance at the 20-time English champions.
“I wouldn’t have done anything different. I would have only done it different if I’d known it was 10 months instead of six years,” Moyes said.
“My understanding was that I was going to a club which always looked after their managers, even when they were in trouble and it wasn’t going well, you got your time to sort things out. I was under that illusion when I was there.
“I had a great group of players they had recently won the Premier League under Sir Alex, but it was going to take time for that to change, evolve and of course there was going to have to be a changeover of players in time, but it couldn’t be done in 10 months. Would I take the job again? Of course I would.
“There are very few managers in the world who wouldn’t want to manage Manchester United.”
United are in sixth place and nine points behind Premier League leaders Arsenal.
The Red Devils host Swansea City in their next top-flight game.
