David Moyes: The laughing stock of football

The first team has been relegated from the Premier League this week, and who else would send a team down to the Championship than David Moyes? From his abysmal decisions at Manchester United to this. A team that has been in an uphill battle for most of the season has now been brought back down to earth, however at what cost for Moyes?

Moyes is now well and truly the biggest football laughing stock – even on the world footballing stage! He has gone from nearly not even getting Manchester United to the Europa League, to getting Sunderland relegated. It seems like if any team wants Moyes then their team is going to be absolutely poisoned by his dreadfulness.

Probably the best footballing managers of all time, Sir Alex Ferguson, chose the Scot to succeed him after his retirement in 2013. After one of the biggest fanbases in the world said farewell to a manager that won them 38 trophies in 26 years, in came Moyes to try and live up to at least his potential. In that season, they barely reached the Europa League!

In a drastic attempt to try and save his reputation, he moved abroad to attempt salvage something out of high-flyers at the time Real Sociedad, but after just a year he was sacked once again.

What most people can’t understand is why such a decent Premier League side, like Sunderland, would sign a manager that has been sacked from two different clubs. Sunderland have spent a total 816 days in the drop zone since being promoted from the Championship in 2007, so they should be trying to sign the best of the best out there!

Whatever club David Moyes goes to in the near future, it is certainly safe to say that he won’t do a good job. Whether he will even be sacked by Sunderland still remains undecided, but if they decide to keep him then they will be absolutely stupid!
