Former Everton, Manchester United and West Ham manager David Moyes has thrown his hat in the ring for the vacant Leicester City job, as per Bein Sports.
Moyes has been out of work since leaving the Hammers in the summer and reportedly wasted no time in getting his name in the discussion for the Foxes post after Claude Puel was sacked in the wake of the 4-1 home thrashing at the hands of Crystal Palace.
But Moyes also apparently said that he feels the job is Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers’ to lose, and the Sun report that Leicester are prepared to pay £6m to lure the former Swansea manager away from Parkhead.
One of the issues with Puel was his dour style of play – which was also the problem at Southampton, where he came eighth and reached the EFL Cup final but was still sacked – and Moyes wouldn’t be particularly useful in terms of solving that particular problem.
Moyes is a pragmatic manager, who gets results by making his teams obstinate and fit and that is well suited to sides struggling down the bottom of the league who need a quick fix.
But Leicester aren’t going to go down – they are a comfortably mid-table team and their supporters want to see more entertainment and excitement.
Moyes isn’t going to resolve that and somebody like Rodgers – who preaches passing football – would be far better suited and that’s why Leicester should ignore the Scot’s blatent come-and-get-me plea.
