David Moyes reflects on Manchester United tenure

Former Everton manager David Moyes believes that he is now a wiser manager after his failed Manchester United reign.

David Moyes has been reflecting on his tenure as the Manchester United manager.

The Scot was appointed the Red Devils boss last summer following the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson.

The decision to make Moyes the United manager came as a surprise to many, with questions being asked whether he had the calibre to be in charge of one of the biggest clubs in the world.

Eventually Moyes got sacked in April, as United endured a disastrous 2013-14 season to finish seventh in the Premier League table.

The former Preston North End manager had been in charge of Everton for over a decade before he was approached by United, and Moyes has admitted that he is better prepared now than he was last summer.

‘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’, Moyes told The Telegraph.

‘I felt I was ready when I left Everton but obviously when you get in you see things and you realise that experience and knowledge you can only get from being in the job. But unfortunately I only got nine months’.

Moyes was indeed a failure at United, but one has to sympathise with him. Last summer he could not sign the top-class players that the Premier League club’s squad needed, and there were reports that some of the senior members did not agree with his tactics.

Although it is unlikely that a club anywhere near to United’s stature will make an offer to Moyes anytime soon, it is only a matter of time before he is approached by an ambitious outfit.
