David Moyes: I`m ready to get back into the job.


Former Manchester United manager David Moyes has revealed he is set for a come back to management.

The 51-year-old Scot left Everton in 2013 to manage the 20-time English champions following Sir Alex Ferguson`s retirement.

However, an appalling campaign with heavy defeats to rivals Manchester City and Liverpool at Old Trafford, including home and away defeats to his former club Everton saw his reign at the Theatre of Dreams come to an end.

But David Moyes has admitted he is ready for a come back after enjoying sometime off.

"I'm ready to return," he told BBC Sport.

"I have enjoyed the time off but I have got to wait on the right job and make sure it's one that I want.

"I'm really ambitious. I would never have left Everton for anybody but an ambitious football club. And I thought Manchester United would have given me that opportunity.

"It didn't materialise that way, so I am hoping that the next club I join gives me the chance to build a team, because I think that is what I am good at.

"It doesn't need to be a club that is in European football but I've got to say the time I had in the Champions League last year - getting to the quarter-final in the Champions League wasn't a bad feat.

"I really enjoyed it - embraced it, actually loved the Champions League nights, and we did well."

He added: "I got the job and I expected it to be a six-year plan. I signed a six-year contract... [I am] disappointed it didn't go to plan.

"I expected to be given an opportunity to fulfil that and it wasn't what was expected.

"It was really difficult when I lost the job initially because I didn't really see it coming, even though I had been losing games.

"I knew that it could be difficult but I joined a club that I felt stood behind their managers, made sure they supported them in difficult times. And, you know, Sir Alex had difficult times when he first took over.

"And I do understand that the landscape has changed a little bit in football, but I think that United always stood for the right things and I expected them to do what was right with me."
