Former Manchester United coach David Moyes has stated that he wants to manage a club in the Champions League once again. Moyes was sacked as the manager of Manchester United after just 10 months in charge of the club. During this time, he was unable to cope with the requirements of the job. United finished the season in a disappointing seventh place and it largely a result of the poor campaign under Moyes. The only positive from the season has been reaching the quarter-finals of the Champions League, although United came close to reaching the semifinals.
The club may have appointed a new manager in the form of Louis van Gaal, but Moyes reckons that he would have done better had he been given more time. The former Everton manager is currently out of work and will be looking for a new job once the season gets underway. He says that he has already received a couple of offers from clubs. A few months ago, he was linked with the Tottenham managerial job. For the first time, Moyes has spoken in detail about his future plans. He says that he may even be prepared to try out managing a club abroad.
The likes of Steve McClaren and Roy Hodgson are some of the few to have managed abroad.
“I got my first real taste of Champions League this year and I thought I showed I can manage at that level. I would like somewhere that would give me a chance of being in the Champions League or a club that has ambitions of being in the Champions League. It could be at home or abroad. I have always liked the thought of broadening my horizons and learning a bit more and at the moment I am quite comfortable watching and learning. I will go away and learn and look again to see what is happening,” said the manager.
