The Toffees manager expresses his desire to work abroad and love of the Bundesliga.
Everton manager David Moyes has admitted his admiration of football in Germany as rumours that he is going to take over Schalke 04 continue to rumble on.
Moyes’ contract at Goodison Park runs out at the end of the season but the Scot has failed to confirm whether he will be staying or moving from his position of 11 years.
The 50-year-old has been constantly linked with jobs in the Bundesliga and he has not hidden his interest in German football.
“I’ve always said that I wouldn’t have a problem managing abroad and want that opportunity in time,” Moyes was quoted on Sky Sports.
“For a long time when I’ve been to see games in Germany I’ve been amazed by the atmosphere. People talk about the atmosphere in the Premier League but over there it’s incredible.”
The Everton boss has won three manager of the year awards during his time on Merseyside in 2003, 2006 and 2009.
He has been praised for his ability to build a competitive top ten Premier League side on a minimal budget and the current 2012/13 season has been another success for the Toffees, as they sit in sixth position with three matches left.
However, despite Moyes’ name being linked with Germany it is in fact the Arsenal job that has been associated with him most recently.
Current manager at the Emirates, Arsene Wenger, is being touted as a successor to Carlo Ancelotti at super-rich Paris Saint-Germain.
Whatever happens it is starting to look like Everton may struggle to hold onto their prized boss.
