Former Manchester United and Everton boss David Moyes has been appointed as the new manager Spanish club Real Sociedad.
The 51-year-old has been out of a job since being sacked back in April by Manchester United, after only a 10-month spell at Old Trafford.
Moyes has been named as a replacement for Jagoba Arrasate, who was dismissed as head coach by Sociedad after a terrible run of form which now sees them placed 15th in La Liga.
The Scot has signed a contract that is due to last until June 2016 and will take charge of the side for the first time on November 22, when Sociedad take on Deportivo.
The appointment was formely pronounced on Real Sociedad’s official website on late on Monday evening.
The statement read: “Real Sociedad have reached an agreement with David Moyes,” it read.
“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 recently told the BBC in an interview that he was ready to return to management but would wait for the ‘right job’ to be offered. Moyes also said in the interview that he wouldn’t rule out a job in Europe.
“It is something that we don’t report enough – British managers outside the shores,” he said.
“It will actually help the development of coaches where you can come back and give a bit back to them – tell them the experience you have had working in Spain, Italy, Germany or wherever it may be.”
Moyes becomes the fourth British manager to ever take charge at the club.
