Everton manager David Moyes plots Germany move
David Moyes has revealed he would like to manager abroad one day and has singled out Germany as a possible destination.
The Everton manager said he was ‘fascinated’ by the Bundesliga and suggested that he and German football would be a great match for each other.
Moyes told France Football, home of the slightly controversial interview: “I always had the hope of being a coach abroad. If I had the choice, I would probably go to Germany, in part because of the mentality, which is similar to mine. I’m also fascinated by what happens in German football.
“They seem to have found a way of producing young players. Look at Borussia Dortmund. I saw them against Manchester City this season. They were fantastic. They put this incredible intensity on their opponents to break the tempo. It adds a new tactical level.
“If I was not working as a coach, I think I would decide to go to South America: to Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay, to see how they train young people out there. That would be my project: to understand football better.”
Toffees fans will be hoping that his departure isn’t for a few seasons yet, but it does offer a fascinating insight into Moyes’ mindset and his thirst for self-improvement.
Let’s just hope he doesn’t do the German accent like Steve McClaren.
