Moyes resigns as Sunderland manager

Former Manchester United boss David Moyes has resigned from his post at Sunderland.

Moyes spent just one year in charge of the Black Cats and couldn't stave off relegation as they finished the Premier League season bottom of the table, collecting just 24 points. They lost 26 of their 38 league matches, drawing six and winning just six.

The club were knocked out of the FA Cup fifth round by Burnley. They did see off both Shrewsbury Town and QPR in the League Cup but went down to eventual runners-up Southampton.

Moyes was at the helm of Manchester United for just 10 months of the 2013/14 season, the third shortest reign in the club's history. At the time of his dismissal, United were seventh in the table, 13 points behind fourth placed Arsenal.

The Scot went on to manage Real Sociedad but was there for less than a year, dismissed in November after a poor start to the 2015/16 season.

Moyes was previously manager of Everton for 11 years, leading the club to a fourth place finish in 2005 and reaching the 2009 FA Cup final.
