David Moyes has been appointed as Real Sociedad’s new manager.The former Manchester United boss has signed a contract with the Spanish side that runs until June 2016 and will officially be presented at the Anoeta Stadium on Tuesday.
Moyes, 51, replaces Jagoba Arrasate at the helm of the La Liga strugglers, who are currently sitting 15th in the table.
The Scot had been out of work since being sacked as United manager in April, just ten months after signing a six-year contract to succeed Sir Alex Ferguson.
“Real Sociedad have reached an agreement with David Moyes to be the first team coach until 30 June 2016,” read a club statement.
“Details about the official presentation of Real Sociedad’s new coach and who will form part of his technical team will be published tomorrow [Tuesday] morning.”
Moyes becomes the fourth British boss of the San Sebastian-based club, following in the footsteps of Harry Lowe, John Toshack and, most recently, Chris Coleman.
He has previously spoken of his desire to manage abroad, and will be hoping to rebuild his reputation in Spain after his disastrous tenure at Old Trafford, which followed a successful 11-year spell in charge of Everton.
