Former Manchester United boss David Moyes has been linked with the manager’s job at Real Sociedad after Jagoba Arrasate was sacked by the La Liga side on Sunday.
Arrasate was relieved of his duties by the Spanish club after a discouraging start to the season which has left them in the relegation zone of the La Liga table.
Real Sociedad have played 10 league matches winning just once and were also knocked-out from the Europa League before the group stages after they were defeated by Russian club Krasnodar earlier in the season.
Jagoba Arrasate's future at the club became shaky after he couldn't register a win in September and October and it seems the 1-0 home defeat to Malaga on Saturday was the last the Sociedad board could accept from the 36-year-old coach.
A statement on the club's official website said: "Real Sociedad have decided to relieve Jagoba Arrasate of his duties as first-team coach."
The Spanish side finished in seventh place last term under Arrasate and his contract was extended to 2016 back in April, but a poor start to the season has made him get the sack.
Former Everton manager Moyes has been out of job since his dismissal at United in April after ten months in charge.
Also, sources in Spain have linked former West Brom coach Pepe Mel with the managerial vacancy at Sociedad.
