Former Manchester United and Everton manager David Moyes has hit out at this season’s standard in the Premier League; claiming that the competition we are all accustomed to in England’s top flight isn’t what it used to be.
The Premier League has come under criticism this term, as Chelsea have been dominant at the top of the table for the entire season and could have the title wrapped up by Sunday – making it rather unexciting viewing for supporters.
Moyes echoes the criticism; believing that the 2014-15 campaign has been the worst he has ever seen – and perhaps even the poorest in Premier League history.
In an interview with BT Sport, the former Old Trafford boss said, “It’s as poor a Premier League as I’ve seen for… maybe since the start of the Premier League”, as quoted by the Daily Mail.
“When you think of the great players who have graced the Premier League and the teams… I look at this year, and I look back, and I say, ‘Well I don’t see that’,” he continued.
“I see good teams, very good teams, and some great players, but I just don’t see the competition the way it was in years gone by.”
The 52-year-old returned to management at the end of last year following his sacking by Manchester United – joining La Liga outfit Real Sociedad in November on an 18-month deal.
While he insists that he’s happy working in Spain at the moment, the Scotsman revealed that he intends on making a return to England in the future.
“I’m not missing the Premier League just now,” he continued.
“I’ve actually come and I’ve seen something else, I’ve seen another league. I’m enjoying going to different stadiums, working with different players, trying to learn the language and the culture.
“I couldn’t turn round and say I’m missing the Premier League at the moment, no. But obviously, it’s where I’ve done most of my work and in time I’ve got no doubt I’ll go back there. But at this moment in time, I’m really enjoying my time in La Real.”
