David Weir eyes US/Canadian opportunities

Long-time Everton stalwart David Weir may be considering managerial or coaching positions in North America after being unceremoniously dumped by Sheffield United after just a few months, his managerial career in England getting off to a rather rocky start.

Weir tells The Scotsman in an article published on Tuesday that "if the right opportunity came up, I'd go tomorrow."

According to the article, Weir has the US connections (he played college soccer at the University of Evansville, Indiana) and the resum to back up his ambitions. The 43-year-old former Everton and Glasgow Rangers player appeared 69 times for Scotland and recently managed Sheffield United in League One for his first managerial stint.

Things didn't go so well with the Blades. Weir was sacked in October after only a few months following a 12-game winless streak. Now his sights are set on the USA.

"The MLS is expanding and the leagues below have expanded. It's already a really good league and it will get even better," he told The Scotsman. "It has the potential to be one of the best leagues in the world one day."
