Manchester United on Tuesday sacked manager David Moyes following a disastrous ten-month spell at the world-famous club, with veteran midfielder Ryan Giggs named as interim manager.
Moyes, 50, succeeded Alex Ferguson at the helm of the Premier League side on July 1 but the move quickly became a fiasco with the team slumping to a series of embarrassing defeats.
After feverish speculation in the British media, United confirmed Moyes's departure in a brief statement.
"Manchester United announces that David Moyes has left the club," United said.
