Former Tottenham Hotspur forward Garth Crooks has told BBC Sport that Newcastle United should appoint David Moyes as their next head coach.
John Carver is in charge of the Newcastle first team at the moment, but his current role will end in the summer.
“I think Mike Ashley is an astute enough man to realise he has had his wake-up call, and Carver staying would not say the club is going in the right direction,” Crooks told BBC Sport’s Final Score programme.
“I think David Moyes would be a good fit. Moyes is quite happy with Real Sociedad in Spain but is very keen to prove himself back in England.”
Moyes took charge of Real Sociedad only in November of last year, and his work at the Spanish club is far from done.
It will not be easy for Newcastle to convince the Scot to leave Sociedad, especially if club owner Mike Ashley does not promise him funds and allow him to build a team that can compete.
While the former Everton and Manchester United manager would be a good appointment for the Magpies, perhaps it is best if they look at other and more available candidates in the summer.
