Former Manchester United manager David Moyes said it was "unfortunate" he was not given more time at Old Trafford but insisted he had benefited from his short spell in charge there.
The Scot said he had learned some "invaluable lessons" during his time at the club.
Moyes, who took over from Sir Alex Ferguson, was sacked in April when he was just 10 months into a six-year contract.
The 51-year-old said he had had some "very good" job offers since then, but may choose to take a break from working in football.
Moyes said he believed he would be given more time to implement a revamp at the club and said that players, including Wayne Rooney and Darren Fletcher, had contacted him with messages of support after he left.
