After much speculation, David Moyes has now been officially sacked by Manchester United, according to the Daily Mail.
Chief Executive Ed Woodward had a face to face meeting with Moyes at 8 am Tuesday morning to inform him that his time in charge of United has now come to an end.
The Scot spent his last few minutes at Carrington to thank all the staff at the training ground, as he is believed to have already been informed on the issue earlier in the day.
News broke Monday morning that the Glazer family, who own the club, were beginning to lose their patience with Moyes after what is said to be a horrible first season in charge with the Red Devils now unable to secure a Champions League spot.
Sitting at seventh place in the league, the final decision to send the manager packing was said to be right after another devastating 2-0 loss at the hands of Moyes’ former club Everton.
And it looks like the club will be lining up former Bayern Munich and Barcelona manager Luis van Gaal to replace him this summer, with Ryan Giggs installed as the temporary ‘caretaker manager’.
