LMA confirms agreement between Man Utd and David Moyes over payoff
Man Utd have come to an agreement with sacked manager David Moyes over the Scot’s termination payoff, according to The Telegraph.
Moyes arrived at Old Trafford in July by signing a six year contract, bringing an end to an impressive 11 years in charge at Everton, but was dismissed on Tuesday with the champions sitting seventh in the table and with fading hopes of reaching European competition next season.
That dismissal means Moyes lasted only 10 months of that six year contract, and so discussions have been ongoing in relation to his departure terms. The League Managers Association have now confirmed that an agreement has been reached between the club and Moyes, releasing the following statement:
“The League Managers Association and Manchester United are pleased to confirm that terms of settlement have been agreed between the Club and David Moyes in respect of the termination of his employment.
“A settlement agreement is in the process of being finalised. No further comment will be made in relation to this issue.”
The figures involved have not been disclosed.
In other Moyes news, ESPN are among the numerous media outlets to report that Tottenham are considering taking the Scotsman to White Hart Lane to replace incumbent boss Tim Sherwood, who is believed to be looking at an end of season performance review after signing an 18-month deal in October to take the reins at White Hart Lane.
Tottenham have insisted there will be nothing sinister about the meeting, but the reports certainly imply that Moyes’ new-found availability could sway the club toward appointing the Scot in a bid to find Champions League football next term, though this rumour has not been acknowledged publically.
