David Moyes has been sacked as Manchester United manager, less than a year after taking charge of the 20-times English football champions.
Moyes replaced United legend Sir Alex Ferguson, who retired after 26 years in charge of one of the world's most popular clubs.
United failed to get going this season under Moyes and languish in seventh place, meaning it will miss out on Champions League football next season.
The club confirmed the sacking on Twitter after Moyes held a face-to-face meeting at United's Carrington training ground with executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward.

Why Louis van Gaal Would Be Wise to Go to Tottenham over Manchester United
...the unhappy end to his time in Munich should make him think twice about taking on a club job of such scale again.
A stuttering Bundesliga campaign in 2010-11 for the reigning champions saw him sacked earlier than his previously agreed summer leaving date. As Raphael Honigstein of Sports Illustrated described it at the time, Van Gaal was a casualty of a "culture of enormous pressure."
Not surprised at all. Manchester United played poorly compared to the Liverpool, Chelsea, Manchester City, Arsenal and Everton. ManU’s aging roster needs a lot of younger players as replacements.
The Scot was left in the dark about his imminent departure on Monday despite the news breaking on Twitter.
Moyes, in charge at Old Trafford for only 348 days, is angry with chief executive Ed Woodward and other club officials who did not keep him informed of his fate.
