Moyes tempted by offers after United firing
MANCHESTER, England (AP) — Former Manchester United manager David Moyes says he is being tempted by one or two “very good offers” to return to football coaching, almost six weeks after being fired by the Premier League giants.
Writing in British newspaper The Sunday Times in his first media comments since his departure, Moyes says “another possibility is that I may choose to have a break and enjoy watching and observing football throughout the world. What I do know for sure is that I have moved on.”
Moyes lasted just 10 months as the successor to Alex Ferguson before he was fired in April, with United languishing in seventh place in a dismal defense of its league title.
The Scot says “it could well be that gone are the days of long-term planning ... It was unfortunate I wasn’t given more time to succeed.”
