It seems the sporting world is coming down on David Moyes. It should be recalled that just last season David Moyes was relieved of his duties to Manchester United due to their constant loss and his inability to improve the performance of the team during the league. Now the same occurence has become for Moyes once again as he has been sacked by Real Sociedad on Monday, November 9, this being just after a year as a of the La Liga side.
The manager was sacked after a series of poor results with the team beaten 2-0 by relegation favourites Las Palmas on Friday, November 6 clash. Under Moyes, Sociedad have won just two games. David Moyes was appointed in November after he was sacked by Manchester United.
During the summer transfer window, Moyes failed to bring in targets from the English Premier League. Real Sociedad were 16th, having won only twice in 11 games last season. A year later the team are in virtually the same position, the improvement of the second half of last season long forgotten.
They finished it in 12th place, on 46 points, but now they are 16th again and have won twice in 10 games. Those victories have been away to the bottom two, Levante and Granada, and they are yet to win at home.
David Moyes Under Pressure
Moyes has been in charge for la Real for 38 games, the equivalent of a full league season, during which time they have picked up 46 points, with only 11 wins. Last season they finished 12th, 11 points clear of the relegation zone. Now only goal difference separates them from the bottom three.
He was informed of the club’s decision to sack him on Sunday, November 8.
Former Barcelona youth team coach Eusebio Sacristan has already been lined up to take over until 2017. Moyes is however due around 1.5m euros in compensation and could be set for a swift return to coaching in the EPL.
