    Moyes attended Williamwood High School in Glasgow, where he played for the school football team. He was a talented player and caught the eye of several local clubs. After leaving school, he was offered a contract to play for Celtic, one of the biggest football clubs in Scotland.

    Moyes started his professional football career as a central defender for Celtic, but he struggled to break into the first team. He went on to play for several other Scottish clubs, including Dunfermline Athletic, Hamilton Academical, and Preston North End, where he eventually retired from playing and started his coaching career.

    Despite facing setbacks and challenges throughout his childhood and youth, Moyes' dedication and hard work helped him achieve success in football, both as a player and a coach.

    Managerial career

    David Moyes' managing career began in 1998 when he was appointed as the manager of Preston North End, a club he had previously played for. He helped guide the team to promotion from the third division in his first season in charge and established them as a solid second-tier team in the following years.

    In 2002, Moyes was appointed as the manager of Everton, where he would spend the next 11 years of his career. He inherited a team that was struggling in the Premier League and faced the threat of relegation. However, he quickly turned their fortunes around and helped establish Everton as a top-half team.

    Under Moyes' leadership, Everton enjoyed some of their most successful seasons in recent memory. They consistently finished in the top half of the Premier League, reaching as high as fourth place in the 2004-05 season and securing a place in the UEFA Champions League qualifying rounds.

    Moyes' success at Everton earned him the respect and admiration of the footballing world, and he was named the League Managers' Association Manager of the Year on three occasions (in 2003, 2005, and 2009).

    In 2013, Moyes was appointed as the manager of Manchester United, one of the biggest football clubs in the world. He had the unenviable task of succeeding Sir Alex Ferguson, who had led the club to unprecedented success over the course of his 26-year tenure.

    However, Moyes' time at Manchester United was short-lived and ultimately unsuccessful. He struggled to adapt to the pressures of managing a club of United's size and stature, and the team's performances on the pitch suffered as a result. He was sacked after just 10 months in charge.

    Following his departure from Manchester United, Moyes took charge of several other clubs, including Real Sociedad, Sunderland, and West Ham United, where he is currently the manager. At West Ham, he has rejuvenated a team that was previously struggling and guided them to impressive finishes in the Premier League, as well as a place in the Europa League.

    Throughout his managing career, Moyes has been praised for his disciplined and organized approach to coaching, his ability to develop young players, and his tactical acumen. Despite facing setbacks and challenges, he has shown resilience and determination, and continues to be one of the most respected managers in the game.
