David Moyes coy on Everton return

David Moyes has been linked with a return to Everton.

David Moyes has refused to rule out an Everton return as he admits he is waiting in the wings for an exciting job to lure him back in to management, The Sun report.

The Toffees’ managerial post is currently vacant as Roberto Martinez received his marching orders earlier this week following a poor run of form in the league and a loss of confidence among supporters.

Moyes, currently out of work following his dismissal from Real Sociedad back in November, is one of a number of names linked with the Goodison Park post and the Scot has hinted that it could be of interest to him.

"Would I consider going back? I’ve always said that I would want an exciting challenge and one which makes me feel I can get my teeth into something interesting," he told The Sun.

"I want go to somewhere which excites me and makes me feel it is the right thing to do. So who knows? I am open-minded to many jobs," he added.

Moyes spent 11 years as Everton boss, guiding the club to a number of top six finishes before trading Merseyside for Manchester United following the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson back in the summer of 2013.

The former Preston North End boss hasn’t been as successful in his last two jobs, yet there is no denying his credentials and Everton right now need a manager to bring back a sense of discipline and steel which was severely lacking under Martinez.

The Toffees have endured a poor campaign, with their defensive frailties exposed time and time again - something Moyes' teams rarely showed at Goodison Park.
