David Moyes returns to the Premier League to manage Sunderland
David Moyes has been named as the new manager of Premier League side Sunderland following Sam Allardyce becoming the new England coach.
The former Everton and Manchester United boss returns to the Premier League after an unsuccessful spell in Spain where he managed Real Sociedad.
He was sacked in November after just 10 months in charge of the Basque team. He helped them finish 12th in his first season but the 2015/16 season started badly and by November they were only just outside the relegation zone. When the Scotasman was dismissed.
Moyes’ last position in England was with Manchester United which also ended sourly with fans paying to have planes fly over Old Trafford calling for him to go!
Before that though he built his reputation as an excellent manager who is used to working with budgets and getting the best out of a squad at Everton and Preston.
The Black Cats owner Ellis Short has announced that Moyes was ‘by far and away first choice’ and he will be hoping that the ex-Preston boss can get the best out of the squad that only just avoided relegation last season.
