Real Sociedad appoint David Moyes as manager

As reported by BBC Sport, La Liga strugglers Real Sociedad have appointed David Moyes as manager.

The former Preston and Everton boss was last in charge of Manchester United, but was sacked after 10 months following a disappointing campaign. Despite his failure with the Red Devils, Moyes’ reputation remains intact with many clubs, and Real Sociedad had long been keen on bringing him in to better their fortunes.

Moyes, 51, replaces Jagoba Arrasate, and takes charge of a side in 18th place in La Liga. Sociedad have won just two games from their first 11, losing six and drawing three. A lack of goals have been a real worry, with the Spaniards having scored one or less goals in eight league games.

But despite the poor form, Real have quality players in Inigo Martinez, Xabi Prieto, Carlos Vela and Sergio Canales who can turn their form around, and Moyes is regarded as the man capable of getting the best from them.
