April 22 (Reuters) - Manchester United sacked David Moyes on Tuesday after a hugely disappointing 10-month spell as manager after replacing Alex Ferguson last July.
The defending English champions are currently seventh in the table, 23 points behind arch rivals and leaders Liverpool with four games remaining.
Midfielder Ryan Giggs was placed in temporary control of the first team while United seek a permanent replacement.
