Real Sociedad have confirmed that they have sacked head coach David Moyes.
The ex-Manchester United boss joined the Liga outfit a year ago, but after failing to help them in their push up the Spanish standings, they have parted company with the Scotsman.
Real confirmed in a statement released on Monday that they were dispensing with Moyes’ services.
“Real Sociedad have decided to cancel the contract of first-team coach David Moyes. His assistant Billy McKinley was also released from the Txuri Urdin,” the missive explains.
“The Txuri Urdin entity would like to thank both David Moyes and Billy McKinlay for their contribution, professionalism and dedication they have shown during their time in charge of the first team, and wish them all the best in their professional and personal futures.”
Real Sociedad currently lie 16th in the Liga standings, having picked up just nine points from 33 during the season’s opening stages.
