West Ham boss Moyes would be 'perfect' as plan revealed by BBC - pundit
West Ham boss David Moyes would make a “perfect” international manager and would be a “real coup” for the Scottish national team.
So says ex-Premier League goalkeeper Paddy Kenny, speaking exclusively to Football Insider after the 58-year-old admitted he would one day love to coach his nation.
Quoted by BBC Sport, Moyes revealed he has ambitions to manage Scotland when the “right time” comes.
Scotland reached their first major tournament finals since 1998 under current boss Steve Clarke.
He wants to lead the national team to the 2022 World Cup in Qatar and they are currently 2nd in their qualification group after three matches.
Kenny highlighted Moyes’ game management and insisted it would make him an ideal candidate to be Clarke’s eventual successor.

“It depends how quickly he wants to do go for it,” he told Football Insider correspondent Adam Williams.
“Is it something he’s thinking about in the long term or is it in the next few years?
“He was out of the game for a while and then came to West Ham. Both times he’s been there he’s done an unbelievable job. It’s been the same almost everywhere he’s been.
“So it depends whether he’s ready to go into international football just yet. We’re going to have to wait and see.
“But I’m sure he’d be a great addition if Scotland were looking for a new manager and it’s something he is interested in.
“That could be a massive coup for them to get him in. He’s got good game management so he’d be perfect for it.“
