Manchester United sacks David Moyes!!!

David Moyes has been sacked by Manchester United after just 10 months in charge and replaced by Ryan Giggs who has been put in charge temporarily until the end of the season.

Giggs, 40, has been combining playing with studying for his Pro-Licence, learning at the feet of the manager for the majority of his career at United, Sir Alex Fergsuon.

United released a short statement at 8.30am on Tuesday morning saying: "Manchester United 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.

Moyes was informed of the decision to let him go this morning at the club's Carrington training ground, said Sky News' Paul Kelso.

Chief executive Ed Woodward is said to have told Moyes the news face to face.

Speculation over his sacking started yesterday, after United's 2-0 weekend defeat to Moyes' former club Everton.

The result left the Premier League champions in seventh place meant it was mathematically impossible for them to qualify for next season's Champions League - the first time they have failed to do so since 1991.

The team has lost 11 times this season, six of them at home, and also endured defeats to bitter rivals Manchester City and Liverpool.

There has reportedly been discontent among some of the club's top players during Moyes' brief time at Old Trafford.

Moyes was handpicked by Sir Alex Ferguson after 11 years at Everton where he guided the team to five top-six finishes.

The 50-year-old signed a six-year contract but is now in line for a pay-off of around £4m - a year's salary - after less than a year in charge.
