David Moyes Sacked as Manager of Manchester United

Manchester United have officially announced that David Moyes has been sacked as manager.

In a very brief statement by the club, Manchester United announced:

“Manchester United (NYSE:MANU) has announced that David Moyes has left the Club.

“The Club would like to place on record its thanks for the hard work, honesty and integrity he brought to the role.

“Following the departure of David Moyes as manager, Manchester United has announced that Ryan Giggs, the Club’s most decorated player, will assume responsibility for the First Team until a permanent appointment can be made. The Club will make no further comment on this process until it is concluded.”

Giggs will be in charge of United’s next match, which is against Norwich on Saturday, which will be televised live on US television on NBC at 12:30pm ET.

The reports published in The Daily Telegraph yesterday that Moyes was going to be sacked and replaced by Giggs turned out to be true.  Sir Alex Ferguson’s replacement lasted less than 12 months in the job, and now the focus turns to who will replace the United manager.

Phil Neville and Chris Woods will remain on as coaches, while Jimmy Lumsden and Steve Round have been sacked along with Moyes.
