David Moyes has been sacked by Manchester United

Manchester United official site confirmed the rumours that David Moyes has been sacked from the club after a dismal loss to Everton on Sunday.

The 50-year old Scot was appointed as the successor of legendary Sir Alex Ferguson on 1 July 2013 and was granted a six-year contract. However, former Everton boss struggled at the club of United caliber and failed to succeed in any of the tournaments. Vastly blamed by many fans for ‘conservative’ tactics and inability to inspire the players, Moyes has been supported by the club’s board. However, after the team had lost to Everton for the second time in the season and lost the chance to get to Champions League next season, the club’s executives lost their patience. The coach has been sacked with emmediate effect and Ryan Giggs will be in charge of the squad in four remaining fixtures.

During his tenure at Manchester United, David Moyes brought in Marouane Fellaini and Juan Mata.
