David Moyes' future at Real Sociedad in doubt

Published Add your comment

Over the summer, Real Sociedad made a bunch of superb signings with the likes of Asier Illaramendi, Bruma, Diego Reyes and Jonathas (who scored a whopping 14 goals for Elche last term) all joining their ranks.

The brilliant transfer window forecasted an exciting season for the club. Unfortunately, after a few weeks, matters have not gone according to plan.

With two miserable points from their first four games, the Scot's team is currently ranked 17th in Spain's la Liga, just above the relegation zone.

A unpredictable and awful situation for a side that finished fourth two years ago and seventh in 2014.

Despite some favourable fixtures, the Basques were only able to find the back of the net twice this season, both against Espanyol on Saturday.

With such horrendous results, Moyes is obviously under heavy pressure. A loss in next week's away clash against Granada could be the last straw for the manager.

After his Manchester United nightmare, Moyes arrived in San Sebastian last November where he penned a 18-month deal with the Spanish club. Since then, he has struggled to get both the white and blues as well as his own career back on track.

In 33 league games with Sociedad, the 52-year-old has picked up 42 points (1.27 points per match), a worse total than his predecessor, Jogaba Arrasate, who managed to gather 65 in 48 (1.35).

Furthermore, in his last 15 games, the Scot has only won 12 points (0.8), an average that would have relegated the team last season.
