Giggs takes temporary charge as Manchester United sack Moyes
The Red Devils announced on Twitter that the club has parted company with the Scot, with Ryan Giggs placed in interim charge of first-team duties.
David Moyes’ tenure as Manchester United manager is over. On Tuesday morning, the Premier League side announced via its official Twitter account that it had parted company with the Scot.
The league defeat to Everton at the weekend, which leaves United in seventh place in the English top flight, proved the final straw and provoked the decision to sack the 50-year-old, who succeeded Sir Alex Ferguson at Old Trafford last summer.
United said: “The club would like to place on record its thanks for the hard work, honesty and integrity he brought to the role.”
Shortly after the announcement that Moyes had parted company with the club, it was confirmed that Ryan Giggs will take charge of first-team duties “until a permanent manager is appointed”.
