Davide Moyes has already said he is not leaving Real Sociedad in the summer for any club, including Newcastle United, but it seems that those in the betting game may not believe everything that is said – and David is odd on favorite – 8/11 on BetVictor and 4/5 on bwin – to get the Newcastle job in the summer.
David Moyes – relaxed in northern Spain
Maybe they know something that the rest of us don’t, and it would be simply terrific if David did join Newcastle this summer, because there’s little doubt he’s an excellent coach.
But he was interviewed in the Guardian recently and it was a long interview, and the Scot talked about his plans for Real Sociedad – and he also looked in great shape and extremely relaxed.
That’s not what he looked like in his final weeks at Manchester United – which was a bit of a nightmare experience for the former Everton manager, but he’s quickly landed on his feet in San Sebastian.
Steve McClaren is still second favorite even though he has said he doesn’t want the job, and the next in line in the betting are Paul Clement and former Swansea boss Michael Laudrup.
There’s no doubt there are some (very) good coaches available this summer, and maybe once we are safe in the Premier League – hopefully this Saturday – then Newcastle will make a move to bring in a new top head coach.
That’s just the first step Mike Ashley will have to make if he is going to get the fans back on his side – but that may be an impossible task after what he’s done this year.
He would be good if he signed David Moyes and then brought in a number of top players this summer – but that to us seems like a fairly remote possibility right now.
