David Moyes is a manager with a bucket load of experience, who returned to the managerial arena with West Ham in November 2017 following disappointing spells with Man Utd, Real Sociedad, and most recently Sunderland.
However, come the end of the season he was replaced by Manuel Pellegrino.
Moyes started out as a coach at Preston North End, and his potential was quickly recognised as he was made assistant to Gary Peters at the club. The Scot was then fast-tracked into the top job at Deepdale in November 1998 after Peters was sacked, and he immediately saved them from relegation from the old Division Two.
Moyes impressively won promotion up to the old Division 1 in 2000 and quickly set his sights on the Premier League. In 2001 Preston went all the way to the play-off final where they lost to Bolton Wanderers, but Moyes was proud of what he had achieved in just a matter of years. His good work was rewarded and he was hand-picked to manage a struggling Everton in March 2002.
The first priority for Moyes was to save The Toffees from relegation and he immediately obliged as Everton finished 15th. Everton have since come on leaps and bounds, with the highlight undoubtably beating Liverpool into 4th place in the 2004/05 season. Everton earnt back-to-back finished in 2008 and 2009, which has been followed by an 8th finish in 2010 and 7th last season.
He guided Everton to the FA Cup Final in 2009, where they lost to Chelsea. He has also won three LMA Manager of the Year Awards since joining Everton.
Moyes was the man chosen to replace Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United in the summer of 2013, however he was sacked in April 2014 following a disastrous nine-month spell.
Moyes returned to the managerial arena in November 2014 with Real Sociedad, but lasted just a year in the job.
