Report: Beckham offers Miami MLS managerial job to David Moyes

According to a report in the Sunday Times, David Beckham wants to bring David Moyes to Miami.

Still without a stadium, the English legend is hoping to secure Moyes before another club can snatch him up, with the former Everton and Manchester United manager publicly wishing for another shot at the Champions League.

Beckham, who oddly enough played with Moyes briefly at Preston North End when Becks was just a 19-year-old Manchester United loanee, is obviously looking to compete with the star power being brought in by the other expansion clubs.

New York City FC officially snatched up David Villa as its first player, and Frank Lampard is rumored to be following him to the Big Apple.  Orlando City FC is rumored to be hot on the trail of Brazilian players Kaka and Robinho.

However, failing to make an impact in 10 months at Manchester United, Moyes is hoping to prove himself again on the European stage, and it will be a tough sell to bring the Scottish manager to the United States.

Beckham’s Miami franchise won’t join Major League Soccer until 2017.

    “and it will be a tough sell to bring the English manager to the United States”

    I hope Kyle Bonn isn’t being paid for these reports?!

      I think he meant it would a tough sell to Moyes, to get him to come to MLS. It would be a coup by Beckham to get a manager with that much Premier League experience to come to the U.S. It’s not going to happen though, it would be viewed very negatively in England and any hope Moyes has of landing a big European job would probably be over if he took a job it what is considered a minor league as compared to Europe.

      Do you disagree with that statement? David Moyes was the manager of Manchester United. Of course it would be a near impossible sell to get him to coach any MLS team.

    He will have a shot at the Champions League…. the CONCACAF version.

    David Moyes would become the highest paid manager in the MLS

    Has now been corrected… he is Scottish, not English!
