London: Former Manchester United manager David Moyes said that he is ready to revive his managerial career six months after being sacked by the 'Red Devils'.

"I am ready to return. I have enjoyed the time off but I have got to wait on the right job and make sure it's one that I want," Moyes, who lost his job at Old Trafford in April, said, reports Xinhua.

The 51-year-old was sacked after less than 10 months in-charge of United, following 11 successful years at Everton.

"I'm really ambitious. I would never have left Everton for anybody but an ambitious football club and I thought Manchester United would have given me that opportunity. It didn't materialise that way so I am hoping that the next club I join gives me the chance to build a team because that is what I am good at," he said.

"I am good at spotting and identifying young players, not only young players, but players. Over the years, we have brought in a lot of players at Everton and they worked well. So if the opportunity came, then hopefully I will be able to make it work."

He said he would prefer to return to English football but is open to working abroad.

"I've had several people contact me about jobs. None of them have turned round and said 'here is a job it's yours'. But people have asked me if I have had any interest in jobs. The clubs that have come calling, I just felt that they weren't right," he said.

Moyes said he had never expected the sack.

"I got the job and I expected it to be a six-year plan. I signed a six-year contract but disappointed it didn't go to plan. I expected to be given an opportunity to fulfil that and it wasn't what was expected. It was really difficult when I lost the job initially because I didn' t really see it coming, even though I had been losing games," said Moyes.

"I knew that it could be difficult but I joined a club that I felt stood behind their managers, made sure they supported them in difficult times. And Sir Alex had difficult times when he first took over. I do understand that the landscape has changed a little bit in football but United always stood for the right things and I expected them to do what was right with me."
