David Moyes: I’d take the Manchester United job again

by Tanveer Arayan

David Moyes has revealed he would take the Manchester United job again if it was offered to him.

Moyes replaced Sir Alex Ferguson as manager of Man United in 2013 but he was sacked less than a year later following a disastrous campaign in which the team missed out on Champions League qualification.

The Scot was eventually replaced by Louis van Gaal, although the Dutchman has hardly fared any better at Old Trafford. Moyes insisted he would relish the opportunity to manage United again.

“I wouldn’t have done anything different. I would have only done it different if I’d known it was 10 months instead of 6 years,” Moyes said.

“My understanding was that I was going to a club which always looked after their managers, even when they were in trouble and it wasn’t going well, you got your time to sort things out. I was under that illusion when I was there.

“I had a great group of players they had recently won the Premier League under Sir Alex, but it was going to take time for that to change, evolve and of course there was going to have to be a changeover of players in time, but it couldn’t be done in 10 months.

“Would I take the job again? Of course I would. There are very few managers in the world who wouldn’t want to manage Manchester United.”

Everything that could have gone wrong under Moyes went wrong – United consistently lost at Old Trafford, the players look disinterested and the aura that surrounded the team in recent years completely disappeared.

While Moyes would like another go at the job, it’s safe to say that fans of the club hope he never has anything to do with United again. That being said, van Gaal is under huge pressure right now and there have been calls for him to leave the club.
