Why David Moyes would be a wonderful appointment for Leeds United

Leeds United are reportedly keen on appointing David Moyes, should Steve Parkin's takeover bid go through.

The Daily Mirror have suggested that Leeds United will look to appoint David Moyes should a takeover bid from Steve Parkin go through, and there can be no doubting that it would be an excellent appointment.

Although Steve Evans has made an encouraging start at Elland Road, swapping him for Moyes could only be seen as an upgrade.

Although Moyes has failed in his last two jobs – at Manchester United and Real Sociedad – his pedigree in the game is without question.

Moyes has shown that he has a talent for building solid teams, and the progress he made at Everton should highlight what he could do if he was brought to Leeds.

Moyes transformed the Toffees on a limited budget, by making them sturdy and resilient – and he has the potential to be a major hit at Leeds.

Not only would Moyes bring experience, knowhow and a big reputation to Leeds, he would also be a manager with a point to prove.

Moyes’ failure in his last two jobs is likely to make him even more determined to make a success of his next stop – and he could be the man to finally take Leeds back to the top tier.

Evans may have made a promising start, but if the opportunity arises to replace him with a man who has guided Everton to a top-four finish in the Premier League, and has taken charge at Old Trafford, then it is surely a no-brainer for Leeds to go through with the switch.
