Earlier today, David Moyes was made the hot favorite to take over as the next Aston Villa manager as Remi Garde is planning to walk out of the club. I understand Moyes’ willingness to get back in management but he should wait a little longer before agreeing to take over at Villa Park.
Having said that, there are at least three Premier League clubs who would love to have Moyes as their next manager. Aston Villa may have been a good project in the past but right now Moyes does not need a career suicide, and I am afraid, Villa are nothing short of a club in massive decline and with no immediate hope of a standstill.
On that note, we take a look at three clubs David Moyes should consider before saying Yes to Aston Villa.
Everton (Current Manager – Roberto Martinez)
YES, Moyes’ very own Everton who also are in a free fall at the moment. Roberto Martinez’s appointment had promises of Champions League football but it has been a huge disappointment for the Goodison Park crowd.
Despite Moyes leaving for Manchester United Bill Kenwright and the former Everton manager share a good relationship and it would not be a bad idea to bring Moyes back to Everton, where he really made a name for himself.
Swansea (Current Manager – Francesco Guidolin)
Swansea need a new and more refined direction next season. New manager Francesco Guidolin has managed to stabilize the ship to a degree but he does not seem to be the man who would last the distance, especially with new TV money kicking in next season.
David Moyes is available to take the job if made available to him and perhaps the sheer need for both Swansea and Moyes would see this being an ideal fit.
Crystal Palace (Current Manager – Alan Pardrew)
What has gone wrong for Crystal Palace and Alan Pardrew is beyond everyone. They have gone three months without a Premier League win and after the start Pardrew had at Selhurt Park, they were dreaming of European football next season.
Times like these call for managerial changes, and if it is to happen then Palace must consider David Moyes as one of the front runners for the job given his history of working in Premier League.
With such options available in front of him, David Moyes must reconsider his future before jumping on the opportunity to manage Aston Villa.
