Could we be looking at the last full season of David Moyes’s tenure at Everton?
He’s widely known as one of the best managers in the Premier League today, but has remained loyal to Everton for over a decade.
He’s been linked with Manchester United in the past, when Sir Alex Ferguson was toying with the idea of retiring and some people are adamant that he will eventually go on to manage at Old Trafford when Fergie finally moves on.
But could Stamford Bridge be his first port of call?
The Daily Mail have this morning reported that ‘Moyes is being talked about in glowing terms by owner Roman Abramovich’.
The Russian has never appointed a British manager since taking over at Chelsea. In the time that David Moyes has been at Everton (March 2002), Abramovich has gone through Italian Claudio Ranieri (2000-2004), Portuguese Jose Mourinho (2004-2007), Israeli Avram Grant (2007-2008), Brazilian Luiz Felipe Scolari (2008-2009), Dutchman Guus Hiddink (2009), Italian Carlo Ancelotti (2009-2011), Portuguese Andre Villas-Boas (2011-2012), Italian Roberto Di Matteo (2012) and now of course Spaniard Rafael Benítez.
Benítez is and only will ever be an interim appointment, keeping the seat warm for a new manager at the end of the season. But could it be Moyes?
It’s the kind of job and new challenge that would interest Moyes, if offered it the ambitious side of him would have to take the offer seriously.
But the pragmatic side of him will also look at the managerial turnover rate and will wonder if its a risk worth taking.
At Everton he’s about as close as a job for life as you can get in football. At Chelsea, he’s not even guaranteed a job till Christmas.
