Ex-United boss set for managerial reign in Spain

Former Manchester United manager David Moyes is set to become the new boss of Spanish side Real Sociedad, according to reports.

The Scotsman has been out of a job since his sacking by the Red Devils in April but is preparing for a return to football management after he was given a tour of the La Liga outfit earlier in the week and commenced negotiations with Sociedad president Jokin Aperribay.

The Basque club have been without a manager since Jagoba Arraste was dismissed for overseeing a dismal start to the season in which Sociedad have amassed just six points from their opening ten league games.

Moyes has previously stated that he would only accept a new job offer if it presented the right opportunity for him to succeed, and given that Sociedad were Champions League participants only last season, Moyes may have found a club with which he feels he can fulfill his ambitions.

“I’d like to find a job, if I can, that gives me a chance of being successful,” the 51 year-old said.

“I have always felt it could enhance me as a manager to go abroad, so that is a possibility.”

That possibility could become a reality if Moyes agrees terms with Sociedad by the end of the week.
