Manchester United sack manager David Moyes

Manchester United have sacked their manager David Moyes.

Moyes had only been in charge for 10 months since taking over from the retiring Sir Alex Ferguson.

Although having been chosen by Ferguson himself, Moyes suffered many losses away and at home.

United are set to record their lowest ever points total in the Premier League, and could miss out on any European competition for the first time since 1990.

The early favourites to replace him include Borussia Dortmund boss Jurgen Klopp and current United player-coach Ryan Giggs.

Norwich face a crucial match next weekend at Fulham, but have one of the toughest run-ins as they face Liverpool, Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal.
