Former Premier League manager Lawrie Sanchez believes that Everton and David Moyes are a match made in heaven.
Moyes made the Toffees top-six regulars during his first spell, leading the club into the Champions League for the first time ever, although they failed to qualify before he left to become the manager of Manchester United in 2012.
Should Everton hire Galtier?
He’s managed Sunderland and Real Sociedad since then, and the 58-year-old is now being strongly linked with a sensational return to Goodison Park following Carlo Ancelotti’s recent departure.
The Scot’s contract at West Ham expires later this month but he’s widely expected to pen a new long-term contract at the London Stadium, which would likely end any speculation of him going back to Everton.
Ex-Liverpool manager Rafa Benitez and Nuno Espirito Santo have both been mentioned as possible replacements for Ancelotti, but Sanchez exclusively told The Transfer Tavern that none are better suited than Moyes:
“I think having seen what he’s done at West Ham this year, it’s a match made in heaven. His record at Everton was second to none and on the back of that, got the Old Trafford job.
“That would be a good fit for him. He knows the club inside out and now I think he will have a wage bill, and the launch of a new stadium, for him, I see that as an ideal match, and he hasn’t signed for West Ham yet.”
