David Moyes has revealed he would like to coach abroad one day, with the German Bundesliga his preferred choice.
The Scot’s achievements with Everton have seen him linked with top Premier League clubs, most prominently the Manchester United as successor to Sir Alex Ferguson.
But the 49-year-old admits he is fascinated with German football and entertains hopes of coaching a Bundesliga side when he leaves Goodison Park.
“I always had the hope of being a coach abroad,” Moyes told France Football.
“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.”
The Everton boss is particularly impressed with Jurgen Klopp’s Borussia Dortmund, who are beginning to have a big impact in the Champions League:
“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.”
The former Preston North End manager added he would be interested in learning about how the game is played in South America.
“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.”
Having joined the Toffees in 2002, Moyes is currently the third longest serving manager in the Premier League.
