Moyes sacked by Manchester United

David Moyes' time as Manchester United manager has been a disaster

By Mike Collett

David Moyes, who has only been in charge of Manchester United since July, paid the price for a hugely disappointing season on Tuesday when it was announced that he has left the club.

The 50-year-old Scot was appointed on the personal recommendation of Sir Alex Ferguson who retired at the end of last season after 26 years in the job having steered United to the title for the 13th time in his reign and 20th time overall.

Moyes, who had been manager of Everton for 11 seasons but never won a major trophy, was given a six-year contract but the Old Trafford club have lurched from one crisis to another.

A 2-0 defeat at Everton on Sunday was the final straw for the club’s owners, the Glazer family, as seventh-placed United have failed to qualify for the Champions League for the first time since 1995-96.
