The Scottish coach believes the job he had at Old Trafford was very demanding, but he would still manage the Red Devils again if the opportunity arose.

David Moyes coached Manchester United in the English Premier League for one season only.

He was at the helm from 2013 to 2014 where he played 51 matches, winning 27, drawing nine and losing 15.

Ironically his winning percentage at the Red Devils is the biggest of his coaching career, but as the job is very demanding, he had to step out to let another manager take care of the English club.

“I never regret taking Manchester United,” he told Goal.

“If the job came up again today, I’d take it in a minute.”

“I’ve not been at Real Madrid as a manager but I’ve seen Manchester United and for me, it is the best club in the world,” he added.

Burnley is Liverpool’s last hope to win the Premier League

Although it might be a longshot, Liverpool has Burnley as their last hope to win the Premier League from Manchester City by the end...

“I think there’s a big demand. Whoever gets the job, you have to win the games and I fully understood that.”

After United, he went onto manage Real Sociedad, Sunderland and West Ham United. Previously he had coached Preston North End and Everton.

“I didn’t go in thinking that wasn’t the case. I didn’t win enough games, and ultimately if you don’t win enough games you lose your job,” he commented.

“The most asked question I get is ‘what would you do different David?’”

“I wouldn’t do anything different. I’ve got some small things – I might have in hindsight kept one of the staff which Sir Alex had,” he said.

“I tried to do that and it didn’t work out. I offered Rene [Meulensteen] the job, and he didn’t take it, and in hindsight, I would have been better keeping Mike [Phelan].”

“That’s decisions but that’s what happens in football management. You make your decisions and go with it,” Moyes concluded.
