Moyes 'happy to talk' about Scotland opening, but would prefer club job
From ESPN - October 13, 2017

David Moyes would be "happy to talk" to the Scottish Football Association about replacing Gordon Strachan as manager but says a new club job remains his preference.

Moyes, who left Sunderland in May, is among the front-runners to lead Scotland, who parted ways with Strachan after he failed to guide them to the 2018 World Cup.

SFA performance director Malky Mackay has taken over on an interim basis while the recruitment process begins and Moyes, the former Manchester United and Everton boss, has cautiously welcomed contact.

"There's been no approach from Scotland but I work closely with the SFA, just two weeks ago I was working with their coaches, so they know where I am in they want to speak to me,'' he told BBC Radio Five Live.

"I do not think anyomne ever turns down their national team but it's got to be at the right time as well.

"My first choice would be to go back to club management but if Scotland want to talk I'd be happy to speak to them to see what they have to say.''

Regardless of whether Moyes ends up in the job, the 54-year-old has no doubt that the successful candidate should be a homegrown one.
