David Moyes is being picky over which job he takes next because of the desire to rebuild his reputation as a top manager.

David Moyes has revealed that he is being picky over which job he takes next because of the desire to rebuild his reputation as a top manager.

The 54-year-old made a name for himself at Everton, but unsuccessful stints at Manchester United, Real Sociedad and Sunderland have seen the Scot's stock tumble.

Moyes has resisted a number of lucrative overseas offers because he wants the chance to repair a reputation that has been damaged in the four years since he took the Old Trafford job.

The former Preston North End boss told The Mirror: "I've had several attractive offers – one just a few weeks ago – that I gave very careful consideration to.

"Most of them have been from abroad and while I loved working in Spain at Real Sociedad, I want to make sure that my next job ticks all the right boxes.

"After what happened at Sunderland, I want something that gives me a decent chance to really build something. I did that at Everton. That was the club that allowed me to get myself to a level where I was recognised as a candidate for the top jobs, like the one at United.

"I would like to see if I can get back to that because my reputation has been a little bit bruised by what I have gone through over the last four years."

Moyes's last stint in management saw him resign as Sunderland boss earlier this year after failing to keep the club in the Premier League.
