DAVID MOYES SET FOR REAL SOCIEDAD EXIT
A timid 2-0 defeat to Las Palmas appears to

David Moyes' services as coach, with an official
announcement expected from the club in the
coming hours as results continue to disappoint
The Basque institution will have to pay out
around 3 million euros in compensation to the
Scot, formerly in charge of Everton and
Manchester United. Real, however, hope to
negotiate a settlement with Moyes that would
bring down the cost.

to have sealed Moyes' fate.

Palmas only heightened discontent in San
Sebastian, with directors running out of patience
12 months into the coach's tenure.
