Real Sociedad hire David Moyes as new manager


After having a troubled season with Manchester United a year ago, David Moyes has jumped back into the managerial ranks with his appointment as Real Socidad’s new manager confirmed by the Spanish club.

Moyes, accepting an 18-month contract, will join the La Liga side following the axing of their former coach, Jagoba Arrasate, who failed to live up to expectations as the Royals drop to 15th place in the league table.

Moyes made it clear that he wouldn’t deny any move outside of England.

“It is something that we don’t report enough – British managers outside the shores,” he said.

“It will actually help the development of coaches where you can come back and give a bit back to them – tell them the experience you have had working in Spain, Italy, Germany or wherever it may be.”

Manchester United sacked Moyes four games before season’s end, and under the ex-Everton boss, the Red Devils dropped out of Europa League contention at seventh place in the league table.

Additionally, the Moyes-led United succumbed to Bayern Munich in the Champions League quarterfinals, fell to Swansea in the FA Cup’s third round and were beaten by Sunderland in the League Cup semifinal.
