Former Manchester United Manager David Moyes Confirmed As Real Sociedad Boss

Moyes looks to rebuild career in La Liga.

Former Manchester United and Everton manager David Moyes has made a relatively swift return to the world of football management, with the Scot signing an 18 month contract to become manager of La Liga strugglers Real Sociedad following days of discussions with the management at the Basque club.

Moyes takes over at a club who have struggled horribly in La Liga this season despite a fine campaign last time around, with La Real having dropped into the relegation zone following a season that started with the ignominy of losing to newly promoted local rivals Eibar on the opening day and a shock Europa League play-off defeat to Krasnodar.

Despite this, however, Sociedad have a talented group of players including former Arsenal forward Carlos Vela and former Real Madrid midfielder Xabi Prieto, whilst they also have some money to invest in the squad as a result of recent sales, including that of attacking midfielder Antoine Griezmann to Atletico Madrid this summer.

Moyes takes over a side who ended their winless run under caretaker management at the weekend, coming from behind to beat title challengers Atletico at home in San Sebastian – a platform that Moyes will look to build on when he takes over this week.
