David Moyes would be interested in speaking to the West Ham United board about a return to the London Stadium if Manuel Pellegrini is sacked, according to a report from the Daily Mirror.
The Mirror reports that both Everton and West Ham have both included Moyes near the top of their wishlists as they consider the respective futures of Marco Silva and Pellegrini.
Moyes, of course, has previously managed both clubs. It would not be a surprise if he was keen to make a return to Goodison Park given the tenure he enjoyed on Merseyside.
But what is perhaps a surprise is the Daily Mirror also suggesting that the 56-year-old would be willing to speak to the Hammers hierarchy if Pellegrini does go.
TBR View – Moyes’s stance interesting
The report notes that Moyes is keen to get back into football. Nevertheless, it seems intriguing that he is interested in the West Ham job.
He never quite managed to fully win over the Irons fanbase during his time in charge. And the supporters may be underwhelmed if he returns for a second spell.
Of course, Moyes may feel that the Hammers could offer the first route back into top flight football. And he can obviously point to the job that he did last time as the reason that he deserves another chance.
But West Ham have already decided once before that Moyes is not the long-term answer. And it is difficult to imagine the Hammers feeling any differently if they offer him a chance to come back.
