David Moyes may not have to wait long for his next Managing job. Just days after his sacking at Manchester United, there’s rumors that Tottenham Hotspur Chairman Daniel Levy could see him as the successor to Tim Sherwood. Very interesting.
The move from Sherwood to Moyes means essentially having a guy who was often a loose cannon replaced by a guy who usually toes the company line. It’s a transition from good copy and interesting soundbites to a boring press conference filled with repetition of cliches and the party line.
David Moyes to White Hart Lane is a narrative according to reports from the London Evening Standard. Moyes was considered by the North London club when they appointed Andre Villas-Boas to replace Harry Redknapp in 2012, and it’s thought that the higher ups at Spurs are fans of his work. Yes, even after he lasted just 10 months at Old Trafford.
Louis van Gaal was believed to be the front-runner for the Tottenham job, but now coincidentally, he’s the favorite to be the next successor to David Moyes with the Red Devils. United were able to take David Moyes out of Everton but there were never able to take the Everton out of David Moyes.
