Manchester United manager David Moyes has been sacked, only 10 months after succeeding Sir Alex Ferguson.
His dismissal was announced shortly after 0830 BST, following a meeting with executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward at the club’s training ground.
Moyes, 50, was chosen by Ferguson to succeed him when he retired after 26 years in charge last summer.
United said player-coach Ryan Giggs will take charge “until a permanent appointment can be made”.
His first match as interim boss will be the home game against Norwich on Saturday.
