Everton supporters have had a mixed reaction to David Moyes’ sacking at Real Sociedad, after it was confirmed yesterday.
Moyes took charge of Sociedad last season, and he saved them from relegation, but never managed to make too much of an impact at the La Liga club.
Sociedad have won just twice this season, and they were left having to sack Moyes, after fearing being dragged into a relegation fight.
Moyes was accused of never understanding to culture of the Spanish club, and he failed to ever learn the native language.
It leaves the 52-year-old’s next move very open, with the two jobs that he has done following Everton only able to be defined as unsuccessful.
After failing at Manchester United there were hopes that a move to Sociedad would enhance his managerial reputation again, but the switch to Spain never worked out.
And some Everton fans have suggested that they are not too surprised to see Moyes struggling since leaving them, while others were more sympathetic.
"Most people who've left here (Everton), it's tended not to work out for them." David Moyes - Everton Manager - 2011 #EFC— LukeProwseBaldwin (@LProwseBaldwin) November 9, 2015
