The sacking of Manchester United coach David Moyes had Twitter sharing its two cents worth this morning, with opinions for and against the decision.
Moyes was sacked following the poor on field performance of Man U this year, with the previously champion club slipping to 7th place in the English Premier League.
The final straw for the owners came on the weekend with United being defeated by Everton 2-0. Moyes had previously managed Everton until leaving the club in 2013 to fill the shoes of Sir Alex Ferguson, Man U’s manager for a record breaking 26 years.
In a statement on Twitter, the club said:
BREAKING: The club would like to place on record its thanks for the hard work, honesty and integrity he brought to the role. (part 2 of 2)
