Sunderland FC have signed former Man U, Everton and Real Sociedad coach David Moyes as it’s new coach on a 4 year deal.
David Moyes was signed to replace Sam Allardyce who was on Friday appointed the New England coach.
‘We are absolutely delighted to welcome David Moyes to Sunderland, who was by far and away our first choice.
‘He is a man whose football pedigree speaks for itself and is someone I have long admired. I have spoken with him on many occasions and I have always been hugely impressed. He was my number one managerial target for the last five appointments, but his desire to honour existing contracts meant we were not able to bring him to Sunderland previously. To be able to finally welcome him as our manager is fantastic news for the club.
‘The fact that David has committed to a four-year deal is a clear demonstration of his belief in what he can achieve here. It is our aim to become a better, stronger and more stable football club and with a manager of David’s calibre and experience at the helm, we have a fantastic opportunity to begin looking upwards, rather than downwards every season.’
David Moyes, out of work since being sacked by Real Sociedad last November said; ‘I am delighted to have joined Sunderland. I am relishing the challenge and excited by the opportunity.
‘I have taken over a big British club, with a great support and I’m looking forward to working in the Premier League again. I look forward to continuing the good work done by Sam.’
