Jamie Carragher says that former Everton and Manchester United manager David Moyes would have been perfect for Aston Villa.

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher has explained in The Daily Mail why former Everton and Manchester United manager David Moyes would have been perfect for Aston Villa.

Villa sacked former Tottenham Hotspur boss Tim Sherwood as their manager last month and appointed Frenchman Remi Garde in his place. Moyes was dismissed as the Real Sociedad coach earlier this month.

“He (Moyes) would have been perfect for Aston Villa,” former Liverpool defender Carragher wrote in The Daily Mail.

“He would have come in and provided organisation and stability and got them climbing the table once again; all the experiences he has been through since leaving Goodison Park will have helped him improve.”

Moyes started his managerial career at Preston North End, before moving to Everton in 2002.

The 52-year-old achieved a considerable amount of success at the Merseyside club, as he consolidated their place in the Premier League.

The former Bristol City defender was given the United managerial job following the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson in the summer of 2013, but he failed miserably at Old Trafford.

The Red Devils failed to finish in the top four of the Premier League in the 2013-14 season, and Moyes was dismissed from his role.

The Scotsman was appointed the coach of Spanish club Sociedad in November of last year, and he guided the team to a 12th-place finish in La Liga in the 2014-15 season.

The former Preston boss, though, struggled to get positive results this campaign, with the San Sebastian outfit currently level on points with third-from-bottom Las Palmas.
