Everton fans debate Moyes return following Koeman axe

Whenever a football manager loses his job, attention turns to who will replace him.

Everton announced via their Twitter page on Monday afternoon that Ronald Koeman has left the club.

The news is not hugely shocking given that the team had picked up just two wins in nine Premier League games.

Majority shareholder Farhad Moshiri provided Koeman with funds in the summer and the club ended up spending more than £100m on new signings, but that level of ambition has not been matched on the pitch.

Now that the Dutchman, who took over at Goodison Park just last year, has vacated the position, speculation is rife over who will be his successor.

One man that has sprung to the minds of Everton fans – for good or bad – is David Moyes.

The Scotsman spent 11 years at the helm of the Merseyside outfit, but since leaving in 2013, the 54-year-old has had poor spells elsewhere.

Moyes failed at Manchester United when he took over from Sir Alex Ferguson, lasting just 11 months at Old Trafford.

The former defender had hoped for better at Real Sociedad and Sunderland, but failed to stay longer than a year at either.

Currently, Moyes is out of work, which has led some fans to suggest that he could become a candidate for Everton.

Judging by the reaction on Twitter, handfuls of the Toffees following would like the Scotsman to return, while others loathe the idea.
