David Moyes: Real Sociedad Sack Former Man Utd Manager

David Moyes is jobless again! This time he has been fired by for real by  Real Sociedad. The club has been struggling under him and he could not make it into the first anniversary at the Spanish side by just one day.

The 52-year-old steered the Basque team to 12th spot last season after taking charge on 10 November 2014.

But La Real are only outside the relegation zone on goal difference and Friday's 2-0 defeat at Las Palmas was their fourth in five league games.

A Sociedad statement said they had decided to terminate Moyes's contract.

Assistant boss Billy McKinlay has also been sacked.
The club are 16th and face Europa League winners Sevilla and European champions Barcelona in their next two La Liga games after the international break.

The move to Sociedad was the Scot's first job after he was sacked as Manchester United manager in April 2014 following a 10-month spell in charge.

Moyes, who spent 11 years at Everton before succeeding Sir Alex Ferguson at Old Trafford, signed a contract to June 2016 and became Sociedad's fourth British manager.

Harry Lowe was in charge for five years from 1930, while John Toshack had three spells in charge, with the last coming to an end in 2002.

Toshack's fellow Welshman Chris Coleman lasted less than seven months following his appointment in July 2007.
