La Liga strugglers Real Sociedad have sacked David Moyes after one year in charge.
Under the 52-year-old, the Basque club finished 12th last season after taking charge on November 10, 2014.
But before his sack, Sociedad were only outside the relegation zone on goal difference and Friday’s 2-0 defeat at Las Palmas was their fourth in five league games.
Former Barcelona assistant coach Eusebio Sacristan was named as Moyes’ replacement, arriving on a deal that runs until June 2017.
The club are 16th on the table and face Sevilla and Barcelona in their next two league fixtures after the international break.
Moyes, who spent 11 years at Everton before succeeding Sir Alex Ferguson at Old Trafford in 2014, signed a contract to June 2016.
He became Sociedad’s fourth British manager after Harry Lowe who was in charge for five years from 1930 and John Toshack who had three spells in charge, with the last coming to an end in 2002.
Toshack’s fellow Welshman Chris Coleman lasted less than seven months following his appointment in July 2007.
