Manchester United have confirmed they have sacked manager David Moyes.

Manchester United have sacked manager David Moyes, the club have confirmed.

Moyes was appointed under a year ago after Sir Alex Ferguson announced his retirement but his management has been nothing short of disastrous.

The feeling at Old Trafford is that Moyes has missed all reasonable targets, failing to come close to winning a trophy, missing out on Champions League football, and is currently on course for a seventh placed finish in the Premier League.

United fans have also turned against the manager and his failure to play either attacking or successful football, who was originally appointed on a six year deal.

With a reportedly huge amount of money available for summer transfers, the hierarchy at the club have decided David Moyes is not the right man to spend it.
