David Moyes sacked as manager of Manchester United

Daily Echo: David Moyes has left Manchester United. David Moyes has left Manchester United.

David Moyes' short-lived reign at Manchester United is over.

The club confirmed on Tuesday morning that Sir Alex Ferguson's successor had ''left the club'' after less than a season in charge.

Moyes endured a miserable time in charge, with Sunday's 2-0 loss at his former club Everton the latest setback.

Manchester United are one place and eight points ahead of Saints in the Premier League table and are due to visit St Mary's for the last game of the season.

The current champions have also been heavily linked with Southampton stars Adam Lallana and Luke Shaw, with the Old Trafford club expected to make bids this summer.

It is not known if Moyes' departure will mean United are less likely or not to attempt to lure the players away from the south coast.

However, the sacking of Moyes could be a bonus for Saints fans - if as rumoured he ends up taking over at White Hart Lane.

Tottenham Hotspur have long been said to be interested in securing the sevices of Southampton manager Mauricio Pochettino, but the north London club could choose to turn to Moyes to replace the Tim Sherwood, should the latter be moved on.

Press Association Sport understands Moyes was sacked by vice-chairman Ed Woodward during a meeting at the club's Carrington training ground on Tuesday morning shortly after 8am.

The club had previously backed their manager despite a series of dreadful results, but Sunday's defeat at Goodison Park proved one too many.

With a £150m spending spree planned for the summer the club's owners, the Glazer family, wanted to make sure they had the right man at the helm to bring success back to Old Trafford.
A statement from the club, released at 8:30am, read: "Manchester United has announced that David Moyes has left the club.

"The club would like to place on record its thanks for the hard work, honesty and integrity he brought to the role."

It is understood that long-serving midfielder Ryan Giggs will be announced as interim manager later on Tuesday.

There will be no shortage of takers when it comes to seeking a permanent successor for Moyes, who turns 51 this Friday.

Louis van Gaal is among the front runners. The former Barcelona manager has an impressive CV and will be available this summer when he leaves his post as Holland coach.

Borussia Dortmund coach Jurgen Klopp is among the fans' favourites to take over, but the club are understood to favour other candidates.

Diego Simeone is a highly regarded figure in European football after taking Atletico Madrid to the top of the Spanish league and into the semi-finals of the Champions League.

However, many fans would like to see Giggs take the post on a long-term basis, despite his lack of managerial experience.

Moyes slipped into United's base in Carrington un-noticed on Tuesday morning.

Succeeding Sir Alex Ferguson, who won 13 league titles during his time at the club, was always going to be difficult, but few expected this season to have gone so badly.

The list of unwanted records broken by Moyes is as embarrassing as it is long. United are guaranteed to end the season with their worst points total in Premier League history, they have failed to qualify for the Champions League for the first time in almost two decades while Moyes' home record is the worst of any United boss since 1978 when Dave Sexton was in charge.

The Red Devils are seventh in the Barclays Premier League with four matches to go, with Europa League qualification now also looking unlikely.

Moyes won 27, drew nine and lost 15 of his 51 games in charge.

The Scot was dogged by claims he was not up to the job ever since he took over last July.

Moyes had enjoyed 11 critically-acclaimed years at Everton, leading the club to five top-six finishes.

The Toffees qualified for the Champions League for the first time under Moyes' stewardship - although they lost in the qualifying stages of the competition - and he also took the Merseyside club to the FA Cup final in 2009.

But all those achievements were small fry compared to what his predecessor achieved.

The enormity of the task in hand seemed to overwhelm Moyes from day one.

Moyes upset some within the club by bringing in his own coaching staff, while the likes of Rene Meulensteen, Eric Steele, and Mike Phelan departed.

Moyes also botched his first transfer window as United boss. The Scot pursued Barcelona's Cesc Fabregas when the Spaniard had no intention of leaving the SpaniSh giants.

Thiago Alcantara joined Bayern Munich ahead of United, while the club made a real hash of their attempts to sign Marouane Fellaini and Leighton Baines on the cheap.
United's bid of £28m for the pair was branded "derisory and insulting" by Everton.

Baines stayed and United ended up buying Fellaini for £27.5m when they could have bought him for £4m less had they acted quicker.

Moyes rarely looked comfortable in front of the cameras, and for that reason many felt Jose Mourinho, who left Real Madrid to rejoin Chelsea last summer, would have been a better option.

Well that was a waste time travelling down to Villa to spy on our star players. Best get a new manager in pretty quickly so he can also get to watch our players who won't be signing for him either

It is a sad day for football and really sums up the direction of travel it is going. Money, money money with immediate success or the manager gets it. I for one think Moyes is a very good manager, but he had a squad of over paid, over hyped players of who failed him and not the other way round. Not one of these so called super stars have been sacked. Having watched ManUre on the box these players are simply terrible – no fight or passion and still they get paid 3 x a week what I earn in a year.
I wish Moyes all the very best and ManUre all the very worst. How many would actually start for Saints……. May be a fit RVP, or a younger Vidic. I certainly would not take Welbeck or Mata over Lallana.
I long for the day when football becomes a sport rather than a business again. When the players are paid a working mans wage and topped up with win bonuses. When the FA Cup is the highlight of the season and the Champions league is for ……….champions. And when English clubs are full of predominately English players who play the game hard and don’t fall when blown on. Alas, it may remain a dream so back to working out people’s pensions.
Roll on Saturday at 3pm………sorry 1245!!!!!! COYR

You are right about the Utd. players. £300 k per week for Shrek. For that kind of money he should be terrorising sides every week like Messi does. He's more like Messy. And to think our one million pound striker is getting stick from some fans because he's missed a few chances lately. The fact is that Fergie saw the writing on the wall at Utd. and got out at exactly the right time. If they want a good, astute manager they would do well to give Moysie his old job back and get Martinez in. Or alternatively they couild give Andy Awful a go. Lets face it if he can get that bunch of donkeys picking up some points he must be a footballng genius.

How long before MP gets linked with the manure job?

For what its worth I have never thought moyes is a good/great manager. During his time at Everton they haven't won a thing and nearly got relegated once or twice, don't forget Everton used to win things and were a big name in football. He has been `bigged up‘ by the media for finishing 6th and 7th on a regular basis, is that a great achievement for Everton?

Management is tricky, football is littered with managers that have excelled at certain clubs then failed when tested at a higher level. Even though moyes got rid of certain back room staff he still had giggs and butt in the background as well as fergie haunting the corridors. I don't think he helped himself however, just the wrong time for him.
This will cost Manchester utd plc a pretty penny, IMO they will be out in the wilderness for a long time!

I tend to agree with you that they wouldn’t have won last year without Fergie or RVP and Moyes was left a mediocre squad by their standards. If they had appointed Mourinho (love him or hate him) they would probably be playing Champions League this year. That’s the crux of it for me, Moyes could not command the respect or rise to the challenge of the pressure and expectation.
I thought it was funny for large parts watching their demise but on a human level I actually started feeling sorry for Moyes, he is best out of it for his own health. He will be remembered as Fergie’s patsy.

With respect Seed, Moyes who has only won the 2nd division title with PNE, yes he did a great job at Everton with so called players worse than he had at ManUre that's why Everton never got near the title, ManUre after all were Champions 12 months ago (today) players do not become instantly terrible during the cricket season, the start he made was totally wrong, yes he had an hard act to follow, yes he had an ageing squad, but he had money available to him that a Saints manager could only dream about and bought wrong, he couldn't sign anyone, no one wanted to go there, apart from Fellani (couldn't blame for the silly wages offered).

I actually feel for bloke I have never seen a man age so much over such a short period of time, he has aged so much since taking the ManUre, as for no obvious other choices, Pep Guardiola was leaving Barcalona announced months before he joined Munich, Mourinho was still at Real Madrid when Fergie said he was leaving, so for me there were other choices and probably better choices than Moyes.

I blame the ManUre Board for allowing solely Ferguson to pick there next manager, he got it wrong I also blame them for allowing Ferige to be at every match, the media didn't help Moyes by slapping images of Fergie at ManUre games week in week out, the pressure got to Moyes and it showed, that is why I believe the job was too big for him.

the 10m he gets should soften the blow. And whilst you might fee a twinge of sympathy for Moyes rejoice in the downfall of United (who fancied themselves as the model football club when it came to succession and continuity) and the trashing of Fergusons reputation - because the buck stops with him not only for handing over a crap squad but also ignoring the claims of far better qualified coaches than a fellow countryman and close friend who never won anything in his career. The club and everyone associated look like fools and I love it.

Moyes has been sacked.

Manure have put Ryan Giggs, with Nicky Butt as his assistant, in charge until the end of the season. Giggs has served as player-coach under Moyes while Butt has worked with the reserves.

Following the disastrous £27.5million purchase of Marouane Fellaini from Everton, clearly the Glazers didn't want to entrust Moyes with the reported £150million transfer funds available in the summer

I said in a previous post Manure might come calling for Pochettino: so Mr. Ralph Krueger get his contact renewal sorted ASAP. We still might not be able to hold on to MoPo, but at least the compensation will be higher.

They won't go for MP, it's too much of a gamble after Moyes' failure; the fans and more importantly the share holders are clamoring for a big, proven name.
It is actually quite amusing to see the list of names, including Guardiola and Klopp who have already said no before even being asked. I think that rather than getting who they want, they will have to settle for who wants to go there, which at the moment seems to be Van Gaal.

I don't normally feel sorry for Manchester United (I stil don't!) but Moyes had no chance when he took that appointment. At Preston and with the Toffees he had some say in matters, but at Old Trafford he had arrogant and selfish fans shouting their ignorant rants, and a Board whose principle responsibility was to service the Galzier Brothers and their debts.

However, he had five years plus to run on his contract and at £2m pa., so his settlement means he won’t be in need of using his local food bank.

United will of course do their usual business and cream off other clubs best players (ours for sure) and one can really blame neither the clubs nor the players involved.

So, Adam & co, should you read this; forget Man U; Barca, Real or Bayern will look after you better!!

It would be cheaper than buying all our players and the trip to home games would be much shorter for most of their fans.

Moyes was never going to be accepted or respected by the senior players at MU, the attitude of these players has played a huge part in this situation.
Also the sacking of fergies coaching staff was a big blunder.

Klopp or Van Gaal will be installed for the rebuild.

I'm no fan of Moyes but I think the way his sacking was handled, dragged on in full public glare for several hours, was incredibly demeaning and frankly disgusting.

What experience did they think moyes had? Fergie liked him because he was Scottish! It's in his autobiography, what a qualification. Man utd will not win the league in the near future.

I've suggested before that they should move Old Trafford to Southampton.
It would be cheaper than buying all our players and the trip to home games would be much shorter for most of their fans.

or perhaps a paper has planted someone in the manure organisation, or offered too much money to turn down to a manure worker. or as you say someone just leaked it. none of those are manures fault though as it comes down to 1 person who cant or was paid to open their mouth.
my point though was that the press were as good as saying Adkins was sacked after the brum game and were so desperate for info that they hung around outside the training ground, even though they must have known any decision would come from sms, they were there just to try to get someone to talk.

So David Moyes has been sacked for being David Moyes. The Utd board and fans can hardly claim to have been surprised by his approach to football – it's the same as it was during his time at Everton. They knew what they were getting. Firing him for delivering exactly that is pretty **** mean. They should have backed him with some money and trusted him. And now we all get to endure several days of arrogant Utd fans discussing which of the top managers they "should" sign, even if those managers already have perfectly decent jobs. But hey, it's Utd, right? So they'll drop everything and come running because the fans think they are entitled to the best all the time.

fellaini £27mill, Mata £37mill, cant say he didn't have money to spend, he just spent it on the wrong players. also he had tried to sign a lot of other players but they wouldn't go or their clubs wouldn't sell, he was desperate to sign Baines from everton, but they wouldn't sell him.

There's more to backing a manager than signing off an a desperate last-minute deal., which both of those were. It's widely accepted that the current chairman is a bit of an inexperienced lightweight when it comes to transfers, dealing with agents, etc. He's no Cortese.

.but the media will do all they can to get a scoop like this, remember how they were all after Adkins after we lost at west brum, outside staplewood asking him if he was going to be sacked.
I never thought Moyes was up to manure job, nothing against him just don't think hes that good, the media were quick to support him but even quicker to get on his back, the fact that they were running with the story that he was sacked from last night shows they must have inside info, you have to ask where and how they got the info.
Yep. My point was the leak not the fact that the media behaved as they always do. Those that will have made the decision to sack him will be few in number and one of them leaked it.
or perhaps a paper has planted someone in the manure organisation, or offered too much money to turn down to a manure worker. or as you say someone just leaked it. none of those are manures fault though as it comes down to 1 person who cant or was paid to open their mouth.
my point though was that the press were as good as saying Adkins was sacked after the brum game and were so desperate for info that they hung around outside the training ground, even though they must have known any decision would come from sms, they were there just to try to get someone to talk.
An ordinary worker would not have known the decision before the rest of us. Adkins sacking would have been decided by Cortese. Cortese may have consulted with Les Reed and may have informed KL out of courtesy (although I doubt it!). But you get my point - only very senior executives at Man Utd would be party to the deal. Unless you think the room was bugged or a mobile tapped then one of them had to leak it.

I am available for a six year contract at £5m pa... I can start yesterday.

Would the Echo please arrange for this to be publicised in their esteemed organ and ensure my name is considered along with the more well known foreign candidates.

Agree. Man utd has dragged football through the gutter. What a load of ****, 6 year deal and moyes will be given a chance! And where is fergie?
What experience did they think moyes had? Fergie liked him because he was Scottish! It's in his autobiography, what a qualification. Man utd will not win the league in the near future.
Thirded. Man Utd have made themselves look extremely foolish here; Sir Alex was solely responsible for appointing Moyes - the Glaswegian mafia at work (I should know, I'm engaged to one). Surely he would be given time to adjust, given that the big man himself took five years to turn a mid table outfit into the annoyingly unstoppable force that we'd come to expect? Nope, everybody turned on Moyes when the results did not match the blueprint.

Hopefully this will be the start of the downfall of Man Utd a la Rangers...

The only good thing to come out of this for Moyes is that everybody knows it was a poisoned chalice he was taking on, so he won't have any shortage of job offers in the near future.
