Some may say that the manager to take over Man United after Sir Alex Ferguson was always doomed to fail.
After all, the Scot had set the bar so absurdly high during his 27 years at Old Trafford that it was almost impossible to match. And so it proved to be the case with his successor David Moyes.
Moyes had been a wonderful servant to Everton during his 11 years at Goodison Park, but the Man United job just seemed a step too far.
Moyes endured a terrible 10 months at Old Trafford, and was on course to guide the club to their lowest finish in the Premier League in over 20 years. It only seemed to be a matter of time before Moyes was shown the door, and so it happened with just a few games remaining in the season.
Man United fans took to Twitter to give the reaction on the sacking, with the majority unable to contain their happiness.
This is what the fans had to say:
@ManUtd thank you this is the right decision at the end of the day…
