The pressure of coaching one of the top football teams has taken its toll on David Moyes.
The Manchester United Club has sacked Moyes less than a year after he first took the reins of the 20-time English football champions.
Man United failed to impress this season under Moyes and finished in seventh place. They will miss out on Champions League football next season.
The news was broken on the Manchester United Twitter feed in the form of a two-part tweet. The first tweet read: “BREAKING: Manchester United announces that David Moyes has left the club. (part 1 of 2) #mufc”
The second tweet said: “BREAKING: The club would like to place on record its thanks for the hard work, honesty and integrity he brought to the role. (part 2 of 2)”
Man United legend Ryan Giggs will take over as interim coach until the end of the season.
Moyes replaced Sir Alex Ferguson as head coach after Ferguson dedicated 26 years of service as head coach to the spectacular club.
