David Moyes has been sacked as manager of Real Sociedad, the club have announced.
The former PNE boss was under pressure due to Sociedad's poor start to the new La Liga season.
They had picked up just six points from 11 games and were beaten by relegation favourites Las Palmas on Friday night.
Moyes was manager of North End from 1998 to 2002 before becoming Everton boss.
He spent more than decade at Goodison Park before taking over from Sir Alex Ferguson as Manchester United manager in 2013.
His spell at Old Trafford was not a happy one and he was sacked after less than a year in charge.
He became Sociedad manager in November 2014
