Speculation over David Moyes’ future at East London changed directions when he confessed his openness to shift clubs. More precisely, a team that dreams bigger than the Irons and targets a top-eight finish.
According to the Scottish mastermind, he has what it takes to help a club play European football. His contract ends at the end of this season and his current claims only imply that his time at London stadium is coming to an unfitting end.
Reports suggest that Leeds United are planning a move, aforethought move to crown David Moyes as their mentor if he is available. Also to mention, Premier League winner Manuel Pellegrini is a suspected target for the management’s shortlist of new coaches.
Both parties have endured direful seasons, as West Ham struggled for the most part of the term before securing safety. On the other side, Leeds United have been ruing over their recklessness, profligacy and a sporadic display of performances.
While Moyes has piled up mathematically planned victories to maintain the Premier League status, the fans have looked woebegone for the most part of the campaign. Paul Heckingbottom has failed to steady the ship, as only on four outings have the Whites picked up maximum points in his short stint.
Hence, one thing that is most needed for both sides is a touch of freshness, with newer ideas, philosophies, targets and players. This inclusion of a different mind would help reignite the aspirations at Elland Road. Next, his experience will only add to the plus points, as before failures at Manchester United, Real Sociedad and Sunderland, he revolutionized Everton’s fortunes.
Moyes could also have a telling effect with the way he sets up his defences, as it is of utmost use in a scrambled looking Leeds United back line. Although he may not bring in instant impact, with some trust from the faithful and senior authorities, he will surely help the Whites advance forward in the coming years, should he sign for them.
The biggest attribute of David Moyes is how he extracts maximum value from limited resources. At Everton, with not much to splash and spend, he cropped out a fine bunch of players, who fostered their way through to the top half of the Premier League ladder. As the scenario is quite similar at West Yorkshire, the fans can be hopeful of some positive results if Moyes claims the hot seat.
