LON­DON: For­mer Manch­ester United man­ager David Moyes re­vealed yes­ter­day that he had re­jected job of­fers from other clubs prior to his dis­missal by Span­ish side Real So­ciedad last week. In his first job since be­ing sacked by United in April 2014, Moyes led La Real to a 12th-place fin­ish in La Liga last sea­son, but was dis­missed af­ter a run of six de­feats in nine games and re­placed by Eusebio Sacristan. “I am dis­ap­pointed to have left Real So­ciedad,” Moyes said in a state­ment re­leased by the League Man­agers’ As­so­ci­a­tion (LMA), which rep­re­sents foot­ball man­agers in Eng­land. “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.” — AFP
