Moyes' contract at Goodison Park expires at the end of the season but he is still waiting to find out what kind of transfer budget he might get before deciding on his future.

The Scotsman has been linked with Schalke, but most recently his name came up amid speculation about Arsene Wenger's future as Arsenal manager.

"I've always said that I wouldn't have a problem managing abroad and would want that opportunity in time, but it's not my main ambition or something I feel has to be done," Moyes said.

"For a long time when I've been to see games in Germany I've been amazed by the atmosphere. People talk about the atmosphere in the Premier League but over there it's incredible.

"The stadiums are full, behind the scenes it works fantastically. The ticket prices aren't outrageous and nearly all the games are completely sold out. The big thing is that they're nearly all in terrific stadiums too.

"Nearly every club has a modern, up-to-date stadium whether it's a bowl or a square sided one. I just think they've really progressed since the World Cup in 2006. I think they're all important factors in modern life.

"If you want to go to the game now you don't want to pay too much but you also want a good seat with an unrestricted view where you can see the pitch. Generally I think that's what they do over there."

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
