David Moyes has admitted he feels angered following his dismissal from Real Sociedad – revealing he turned down numerous Premier League jobs over the summer.
The La Liga side decided to part-ways with the former-Everton and Manchester United boss last week following a poor start to the campaign, and Moyes has spoken out about the dismissal for the first time.
Moyes lasted just a year in Spain, and speaking about his dismissal, he feels the club treated him unfairly after the loyalty he showed them by snubbing interest from England.
According to reports, West Ham United, Newcastle United and some other clubs were interested in appointing him over the summer, but he decided to stay put in Spain.
Speaking about his sacking, Moyes said: “I am disappointed to have left Real Sociedad.
“When I accepted the job as manager of La Real last November, my remit was to avoid relegation and retain the club’s La Liga status. We succeeded in attaining that target.
“I made a firm promise to Real Sociedad to honour my contract and it is disappointing not to be able to fulfil this commitment especially when I have turned down a number of job opportunities in recent months.
“I would like to thank the club and the President for giving me the opportunity to manage in Spain, at a club with such a rich history of employing British Managers.
“I would also like to thank the players, staff and my assistant, Billy McKinlay, for their support and the wonderful people of San Sebastian.”
