David Moyes says he is ready to return to management following his disastrous spell in charge of Manchester United.
Moyes, who was sacked less than 10 months after succeeding Sir Alex Ferguson, said he was waiting for the right opportunity to repair his reputation.
"I am ready to return," he told the BBC.
"I have enjoyed the time off but I have got to wait on the right job and make sure it's one that I want.
"....I am hoping that the next club I join gives me the chance to build a team, because I think that is what I am good at," the former Everton boss added.

Everton midfielder Ross Barkley is close to a return from injury but manager Roberto Martinez remains cautious about the availability of his player to join England's Under-21 squad next summer.
The 20-year-old, who has yet to play for Everton after sustaining knee ligament damage, is already being touted for a recall to the under-21s to bolster their squad for the 2015 European Championships.
It is not an idea that Martinez appears keen on:
"Ross is coming back from an injury so he hasn't played much football,"
"If the tournament was now it would be a good opportunity for Ross to get some playing time but if it is at the end of a season where he has played consistently for 10 months then he needs to have a break."
Martinez does not believe the growing clamour for young players to gain tournament experience is right despite calls for the likes of Barkley and Liverpool's Raheem Sterling to be parachuted back into the Under -21 squad.
Barkley returned to full training with the squad on Monday and could possibly play against Aston Villa on Saturday.
