Sam Allardyce advises David Moyes to take a break from football

Sam Allardyce believes that David Moyes should take a break away from football after getting sacked by Manchester United on Tuesday.

West Ham United manager Sam Allardyce believes that David Moyes should take a break away from football after getting sacked by Manchester United.

The Scotsman was dismissed by the Red Devils on Tuesday less than 10 months after getting appointed as Sir Alex Ferguson's successor.

Allardyce criticised the manner in which United cut ties with Moyes, and believes that time away from the game is the best thing for the former Everton boss, who spent 11 years at Goodison Park.

"I wouldn't advise him to come back into the game sooner," Allardyce told reporters. "I would come back later if I were him. He has done 15 years continuously - maybe even longer.

"To take some time with the family and reflect and enjoy life a little bit more without the pressures of particularly Premier League football will do him the world of good and then when he emerges again, he will come back a better manager than he already has been, and he has been one hell of a manager."

Moyes is reportedly being considered as a possible contender for the Tottenham Hotspur managerial job in the summer.
