With Remi Garde’s position seemingly untenable after days of constant rumours about his dismissal from his post, the rumour mill has gone into overdrive in regards as to who might be the man to replace the former Arsenal midfielder.
According to the Express, ex-Everton manager David Moyes would be interested in taking the job on, even though it is almost certain that Villa will be playing in the Championship next season.
Moyes is rumoured to have told friends that the Villa manager’s job is the only job he would be tempted to drop into the Championship in order to take up. The Villa job is not the only managerial job that Moyes has been linked to since he was dismissed as manager of Real Sociedad in November, with Moyes increasingly linked to the managerial job at Celtic, with Ronny Delia’s position under scrutiny at Celtic Park.
Since leaving Everton in May 2013, after 11 years at the Merseyside club, Moyes’ managerial reputation has taken a massive hit. After an ill-fated spell as Sir Alex Ferguson successor at Old Trafford, Moyes returned to managing in November 2014 with Spanish club Real Sociedad.
His time in Spain was ended nearly a year after it began, with poor results failing to meet high expectations following a summer of lavish spending.
However, after a five-month break from the sidelines, Moyes is seemingly ready to get back into management.
Would Moyes be Villa’s best option to rebound from relegation and gain immediate promotion from the Championship?
