POLL: Were Manchester United right to sack David Moyes? Ryan Giggs named as interim boss

Manchester United have announced manager David Moyes has “left the club” after less than a season in charge.

The Scotsman’s 10-month reign as Sir Alex Ferguson’s successor was announced on the club’s Twitter feed this morning.

A statement from the club, released at 8.30am, read: “Manchester United has announced that David Moyes has left the club.

“The club would like to place on record its thanks for the hard work, honesty and integrity he brought to the role.”

The former Everton manager signed a six-year contract worth £4 million a year when he replaced Ferguson last summer.

Veteran midfielder Ryan Giggs will become United’s interim manager until the end of the season.

Jurgen Klopp, currently with Borussia Dortmund, Netherlands coach Louis Van Gaal, Atletico Madrid’s Argentinian boss Diego Simeone and the former manager of the French national team, Laurent Blanc, have all been linked with the job on a permanent basis.

  • An inexperienced manager for a top flight club in Europe, £24m for 10 months work? He is hardly a victim... the only victim is the club. Fergie wasn't stupid, he wasn't going to retire until he realised he needed to go before it fails. Rooney the most over paid and overrated person in football.Van Persie, in my eyes not as good as when he was with Arsenal. overpaid for him. Ryan Giggs, a legend, but a little too old now to play competitive football (last time I saw him play for united it was painful seeing him lose the ball). Rio Ferdinand a little too big for his boots. Hernandez, de Gea, Vidic, Evra and Mata etc very average - good players - but more of a safe backup than first team material. Players like Welbeck are very promising, still up-and-coming, relatively inexperienced... not quite reaching shooting star status. A very mid-table premiership side, so although they aren't doing really well they are just above half-way.The American owners aren't really helping the situation too.

  • If this has the usual effect of getting the team to be inspired for the next match or 2 then yes definitely. Now who are they playing next :-)

  • I thought this was the IPSWICH Star - so why worry about Manchester matters? Some local news that is not copied and pasted from other sources would be nice once in a while . . .

  • Don't the players take some of the blame ? If I was Moyes I would go for the money owed on the remainder of the 6 year contract ,if the club was daft enough to give him one and pay players vast sums of money to under preform it's their fault.

  • In your promotion elsewhere on this site for your E-edition (obviously few people are willing to pay for it) and where there is no comment box, I note you write it is "in the same layout as the print edition you love". What makes you think people "love" your print edition? Wake up and get real .... yours is the ONLY local newspaper and it is declining ....if there was a choice you would have far fewer buyers, I can assure you of that.... I listen to what people say about you whereas you filter out the negatives and believe you are great.
