David Moyes appointed manager of Real Sociedad


Seven months after being sacked by Manchester United, David Moyes has returned to management after being appointed coach of La Liga strugglers Real Sociedad.

The 51-year-old has signed a one and a half year contract wqith the basque club and replaces Jagoba Arrasate.

Arrasate was dismissed by Sociedad after a string of results left the club languishing down in 15th place with nine points from 11 games.

They clawed their way out of the relegation zone only last Sunday with a 2-1 victory over defending champions Atletico Madrid.

Moyes is expected to be officially presented at the San Sebastian-based club on Wednesday and his first game in charge will be against Deportivo on 22 November.
