Scarred after a nightmare 10 months? Definitely. Rattled after such miserable tenure? Probably. Unemployable? Well, that's definitely a step too far.
David Moyes may have been far from a revelation at Old Trafford, but because of his successes at Everton and Preston North End, he definitely won't have to drop down a league.
Moyes would suit a mid-table club, as many United fans found out - a club on a low budget with high aspirations would be Moyes' type of club.
So, with this in mind, GMS Academy member Ollie Gentle looks at some possible opportunities for David Moyes.
Owner Mike Ashley surely has some sorting out to do this summer, and it has looked far from pretty at Newcastle since manager Alan Pardew's headbutt incident. With the fans getting fed up, it's clear he'll be going sooner or later.
If so, Newcastle will be looking for a new boss, and Moyes would most likely be on their list to employ. With the club on a tight budget, but with high ambition then Moyes would surely be first choice and would work wonders up North.
It's pretty boring up in the Scottish Premiership at the moment, with the loss of Rangers it seems that it is all Celtic's to win at the moment, with barely any competition from the clubs who frankly have a lot less money to spend.
Neil Lennon has been a loyal servant to Celtic over the past few years, but with there being no challenge left then it would surprise nobody if he were to get bored.
So is it a challenge for David Moyes? Celtic are a club on a tight budget, and do try their best in the Champions League even if they will struggle. Moyes does have some experience in Europe, and could perhaps help Celtic get further than the group stage with the right signings and a bit of luck. Moyes would have more experience than Neil Lennon.
With Daniel Levy set to make yet more changes this summer, with Tim Sherwood on his way out Tottenham will yet again be on the prowl for a new gaffer, and Levy surely would have been keeping an eye on the Moyes saga at Manchester United, along with Ajax manager Frank De Boer that is.
Perhaps he may be put off because of their league position, but frankly that isn't all Moyes' fault and I believe he could put a team together challenging for the Champions League if he had time that is. Perhaps don't give him hundreds of millions, but he needs to rebuild.
Realistically, I don't think there are many options that better Moyes, and perhaps the Scotsman would be a better option than the Ajax boss because of his Premier League experience.
Mauricio Pochettino is another who has worked extremely hard this season for the Saints, and like the Everton boss could find himself elsewhere next season.
If so, a new captain will be needed to steady the ship, and Moyes should be their man. Southampton are a lot like Everton, and have big ambitions for the future even though their cash flow isn't exactly pretty.
Moyes has been the only manager to show a definite interest in the Saints stars Adam Lallana and Luke Shaw, and a move down South could actually help keep the duo at the club for just a little longer. Employing Moyes could actually be good in the long term for the Saints as they look to keep their stars.
Probably the most unrealistic, but we should never say never. It's clear that boss Roberto Martinez has worked wonders this season and it would come as no surprise if he were to be head-hunted by a Spanish club, with Barcelona not content with coach Tata Martino.
If Martinez was to go, then Bill Kenwright would need to look no further than David Moyes, the man who left Everton just 10 months ago. Kenwright and Moyes had a formidable partnership, and the duo had previously made Everton a team to challenge, rather than a team who were relegation threatened.
Perhaps the supporters wouldn't be too happy, but they had 11 years of memories when he took over, and they now challenge for the top four rather than to avoid relegation. There's no reason why supporters shouldn't give Moyes another chance to put right his wrongs.
