COACHING STAFF

MANAGER

David Moyes

Nationality: Scottish

Returns to the club he managed for half a season in 2017/18. Despite the fact he led the club out of the relegation zone and to safety then, the Scot was not offered an extension to his six-month contract. After 11 years at Everton, in which he oversaw great progress both on and off the pitch, Moyes has become something of a managerial journeyman, with short stints at Manchester United, Real Sociedad, Sunderland and then West Ham. Will hope to stay longer on this second coming.

ASSISTANT
