01 Dec Moyes open to offers in Europe
Former Manchester United boss David Moyes has refused to rule out the possibility of managing in Europe again following his sacking from Real Sociedad.
Moyes said he was “disappointed” that he wasn’t given the rest of the season to put things right at the Basque outfit and was promptly dismissed after a 2-0 defeat to Las Palmas which left la Real fighting off relegation.
Nevertheless, the 52-year-old, who has previously stated he could see himself with Scottish champions Celtic one day, seems undeterred by the chastening experience in Spain.
“I’m open-minded and Spain whetted my appetite. If the right opportunities came up in the major leagues I’d be interested,” he told BBC 5 live.
Moyes rose to prominence after 11 years at Everton and was handed the reins at Manchester United to be Sir Alex Ferguson’s successor.
However, “the Chosen One” as he was known lasted just nine months in the job before being ousted.
His next stint was at Real Sociedad and Moyes believes he has developed as a manager from his time in the Basque country.
“I think the experience will help me. I gained great knowledge from my time there. It was great to experience what I did and I hope that will make me better,” he said.
“It’s very difficult to compare the two leagues.
“The best teams are in Spain and many of the best players are in Spain.”
