David Moyes Could Make Quick Return To Management

It's been less than a month since David Moyes resigned from Sunderland but the 54-year old is already being lined up for a job, according to reports.

Sunderland have been lurched in relegation battles for a number of years now and have somehow managed to do the unthinkable under managers such as Gus Poyet and Sam Allardyce and put together a great run towards the end of the season to do the unthinkable.

But it wasn't to be under Moyes, who suffered relegation for the first time in his managerial career following a dismal campaign that saw his side win a mere six games in the Premier League, as well as tasting defeat on 26 occasions.

Moyes had stated that he would stay on and try and bring the Stadium Of Light club back up to the top tier of English football at the first time of asking, but just a day after the Premier League season came to a close, with Sunderland losing 5-1 to champions Chelsea, Moyes resigned as manager.

He released the following statement:

"I would like to thank Ellis Short and the Board for giving me the opportunity to manage Sunderland and the fans for always being so passionately supportive of their club.

"I wish the players and my successor well in their efforts towards promotion back to the Premier League".

However, Matt Hughes, Deputy Football Correspondent for The Times, is reporting that Moyes could make an imminent return to the managerial hotseat, and become manager of the Scotland national team.

It's said that the position of current Gordon Strachan will be "under serious threat" if Scotland, currently fourth in Group F on 7 points, lose the visit of England in Saturday's big World Cup qualifier.

While it's noted that the former Manchester United player may be given more time to see if Scotland can qualify for the World Cup in 2018, officials high up within the Scottish FA have been assessing potential replacements and Moyes is said to be top of the list in terms of candidates.

Moyes' reputation has dropped significantly in his past three managerial jobs at Manchester United, Real Sociedad and Sunderland respectively, though taking charge of his country could be the right move in getting his managerial career back on track.

No approach has been made of yet, but the report suggests that if Strachan's woes continue, the Scottish FA would prefer to offer Moyes the job sooner rather than later in order to fend off any competition. Strachan's four-year contract as boss at Hampden Park is due to expire in October.
