Moyes said: “I hate saying it, but it’s become very much a part of it. That’s the industry we are all in now.

“You do look to see what’s going on because it’s the business we are in. British jobs will come up shortly.

“I’ve had offers of a national team job, of club jobs in other countries. Somebody phoned me this morning about a job, not in England.

“I’m not short of getting offers for jobs, that’s for sure.

“I would take whatever I feel is right. I’ve got to try and pick something which gives me the best opportunity.

And Moyes said: “It was a heat of the moment comment I made which I deeply regret.

“I apologised to the reporter and she accepted my apology.”

Asked if he feared the incident had harmed his reputation, he replied: “I don’t think so at all.

“Everybody knows I’ve been married 30 years, I’ve got a daughter who played football for Preston North End.”

DAVID MOYES has backed Simon Grayson’s appointment as his Sunderland successor.

The day after he quit as Black Cats boss, Moyes took the club’s chief executive Martin Bain and their respective wives to his holiday home in Florida.

And the Scot admitted: “I helped Martin. He was talking a lot about the managers and what they were going to do so I helped him as much as I could with the decision.

“Simon and the other people that were in with it were all getting discussed.

“I think Simon is a good choice for where Sunderland are.

“I’ve spoken to him a couple of times, so I think Simon has gone in with a much better understanding of what the situation is.

“He did a great job on a really low budget at Preston and I think he will give Sunderland a chance to get back up.

“He will know the players he needs to bring in and he has signed players that are right for the club and the league at the moment.

“I think they will do well in the end but it might take him a bit of time.”
