David Moyes sacked by Manchester United

David Moyes has been sacked as Manchester United manager, less than a year after taking charge of the 20-times English football champions.

Moyes replaced United legend Sir Alex Ferguson, who retired after 26 years in charge of one of the world’s most popular clubs.

United failed to get going this season under Moyes and languish in seventh place, meaning they will miss out on Champions League football next season.

The club confirmed the sacking on Twitter after Moyes held a face-to-face meeting at United’s Carrington training ground with executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward.
