David Moyes is keen to take charge of Everton for a second time with speculation continuing regarding Marco Silva’s position at Goodison Park, according to a report from England.
The Toffees go into the international break inside the relegation zone in the Premier League. They have lost five of their last six league games, including four defeats on the spin heading into the break.
Marco Silva is reportedly facing a fight to keep his job, though he is expected to remain in charge for their clash with West Ham later this month.
Should Silva leave, then Moyes would be interested in returning to Merseyside, the Mirror reports. The Scot has been out of work since leaving the Hammers in 2018, and has reportedly rejected a number of offers in the EFL.
However, a lot has changed in the six years since he left. Moyes struggled at Manchester United, Real Sociedad and Sunderland, and just about did enough during his time at West Ham.
It would perhaps be unfair to judge Moyes’s career since leaving Everton too harshly given various circumstances. But his record is arguably too underwhelming to suggest that he is the right man to succeed Silva if the Portuguese goes.
Of course, appointments can sometimes prove to be inspired. Claudio Ranieri obviously provides the best example after taking charge of Leicester City. But appointing Moyes looks as though it would be, at best, a huge gamble for the Toffees.
