Madrid - Former Manchester United manager David Moyes was sacked by Real Sociedad on Monday after a turbulent year in charge during which he failed to turn around the Basque side's fortunes.

"Real Sociedad have decided to cancel the contract of first team coach David Moyes," a club statement announced.

"The club wish to thank him ... for all he brought to the club, his professionalism and his dedication in carrying out his duties."

Moyes took charge of the San Sebastian outfit last November, just seven months after being fired by United for overseeing a disastrous debut campaign following the retirement of club legend Alex Ferguson as United finished outside the top four in the Premier League for the first time in 24 years.

Friday's 2-0 defeat at newly-promoted Las Palmas left Sociedad above the relegation zone only on goal difference.

Spanish press reports indicate that former Barcelona reserve team coach Eusebio Sacristan is favourite to succeed Moyes.
