Everton boss David Moyes is being urged to seriously consider a move to Schalke.
He told the Sunday Express: "It would be the perfect club for most managers.

"They are so passionate about their football club. It's like Newcastle United.
"David Moyes has done a fantastic job at Everton. This might be a really good time to branch out.
"They need a solid manager. It's all ifs and buts, but why not?
"When you've been at a club for many years, as a manager or even as a player, sometimes you need a fresh start to get your brain going and ticking in different directions."
