He has previously managed Everton, Manchester United and Real Sociedad in Spain.
In 2002, David Moyes became the Manager of Everton Football Club. He took Everton to the Champions league in 2005,and in 2009,Everton were finalist at the Emirates FA Cup. He succeeded Alex Ferguson as Manager of Manchester United in 2013,but failed to improve on the tempo set by the legend. Moyes was saacked ten months after his appointment as the Coach of the Red Devils.
In 2014, he was appointed as Manager of Real Sociedad in Spain. David Moyes couldn't turn around the fortunes of the Spanish Club,but left them at the sixteenth place in the La Liga. He was sacked for poor performance.
The Former Everton and Manchester United Manager has been appointed as the Manager of the " Black Cats" on a four year deal. He has taken over from Sam Allarydce , who has left to become England's Manager.
On his appointment as Sunderland Boss,David Moyes said " I have taken over a Big British club,with a great support and I'm looking forward to working on the Premier league once again".
Moyes played his first game as Sunderland Coach against Manchester City and lost the game at the Ethad Stadium by 2goals to 1. The Black Cats played a competitive game against the " Noisy Neighbours of Manchester",but they were not as skillful and impressive as their opponents. Paddy Mcnair, a former United Defender scored an own goal against his Club.
Looking at Moyes performance as a Coach in various clubs across Europe,he has to step up his tactics and change his style of play. He has to improve his management style and give morale to his players. He has a strong team that can withstand any opponent,but as the Coach the input lies on him to utilise the skill of his squad.
Let us hope, David Moyes can change the fortunes of the Black Cats.
