Former West Brom manager Alan Pardew feels confident he could make an impact at Everton but backed David Moyes as a ‘good fit’ for the job.
Speaking on Amazon Prime, via the Daily Mail, Pardew displayed his typical confidence in his own ability, but endorsed Moyes’ credentials for a second spell at Goodison Park.
He said: “Of course. Moyes is a good fit for Everton, it looks like a lot of problems there, no cohesion, I’m not sure what the philosophy is.
“They’re in danger of being in a relegation scrap. There’s a lot of managers like myself who could do that kind of job.”
TBR’s View – Pardew trying to remind owners he’s still in the market
When a manager goes into punditry, it can be a double-edged sword. It keeps them in the public consciousness, at a time when many bosses can slide into oblivion.
But there’s also the danger that owners feel they’ve settled into that comfortable role on the television and Pardew is trying to remind them that he’s still looking for work.
His last spell at West Brom was an absolute shambles but that clearly hasn’t impacted Pardew’s bulletproof confidence in his own abilities.
On the evidence of his time at the Hawthorns, Pardew would likely bring Everton closer to the drop than they are now.
