Manchester United took the tough decision to sack David Moyes just 11 months into his six-year contract.

Moyes has struggled to recreate the success and consistency Sir Alex Ferguson brought to the club over a 27 year spell and reportedly lost the support of a number of senior players.

But were Manchester United officials always expecting Moyes to fail?

Under usual managerial contract clauses, a club would have to pay out the full amount of the contract upon sacking them, but for Moyes that wasn't the case.

Manchester United reportedly installed a failure clause into Moyes' contract, entitling him to just 12 months pay if he was sacked after failing to qualify for the Champions League.

He may have got £25m but had to settle for just £5m. That is still a hefty sum, however, and will keep him going while he looks for a new job.

Here we look at six other manager sackings that were more costly to the club.
