Moyes: No manager is safe

Everton boss David Moyes does not believe any manager is safe from the sack in football's current climate - including himself.

Along with most of his counterparts, Moyes was saddened by Blackburn's sudden axing of Sam Allardyce this week but he accepts such decisions are indicative of the modern game.

Moyes said: "Not for a minute did I think Sam was in a position where he was close to the club not wanting his services any more. I think he has done a terrific job for them and I really didn't see that coming at all. But new owners coming in always means you could be in jeopardy, whoever the manager is."

He added: "I think it is one of these things we can't do anything about.

"A lot of clubs are looking for investment and we are one of them.

"You could get an owner in who right away wants to change it around, and that is what has happened with Sam.

"If you want investment the people that come in have to be allowed to do what they want to do.

"I am not saying that is right but we are all looking for people to come and help us.

"If new owners come in, who knows what they might do - to me or whoever else?"
