Madrid, Nov 10 (IANS) Spanish football club Real Sociedad said that coach David Moyes has been sacked following a run of poor results which has left them hovering just above the relegation zone in Spain’s BBVA Primera Liga.
Real Sociedad confirmed this on Monday and it is in line with the rumours that said Moyes would be sacked, Xinhua reported.
Moyes leaves the San Sebastian based outfit after failing to win a home game all season and having claimed just nine points from their first 11 matches of the season.
Those are exactly the same numbers which saw Moyes’ predecessor, Jagoba Arasate sacked by the club a year ago to be replaced by the former Manchester United and Everton boss.
Moyes arrived in San Sebastian with the club in the relegation zone and was able to comfortably steer them to safety last season but the summer saw the club fail to make the moves in the transfer market that he had expected, despite the arrival of former Elche forward Jonathas and Armindao Bruna, as well as central defender Diego Reyes, none of whom were players Moyes had asked for.
