David Moyes believes that he is like Jose Mourinho.
Speaking to reporters at his unveiling as Real Sociedad coach on Thursday, the former Everton and Manchester United manager outlined a similarity between him and the Chelsea boss.
David Moyes: "My style is more like Mourinho. I'm tough, I like to work hard but I'm looking forward to it" #WelcomeMoyes— Real Sociedad (@RealSociedadEN) November 13, 2014
David Moyes: "I want my team to have personality, I want to see attacking, entertaining football but most of all, I want to win"— Real Sociedad (@RealSociedadEN) November 13, 2014
United fans will probably mock Moyes for claiming that his style is like Mourinho’s. After all, memories of a disastrous 2013-14 campaign are still fresh in the Red Devils’ supporters’ minds.
Moyes’s approach to football management may be like Mourinho, but it is fair to say that the latter is a far better coach - his success over the past 10 or so years proves so.
However, in his own way Moyes has achieved success in his managerial career so far: it was no easy feat in making Everton a top-10 team in the Premier League.
