David Moyes and Manchester United in numbers

Manchester United have parted company with manager David Moyes after an underwhelming 10 months in charge.

Moyes's tenure is dwarfed by the 26 years of his predecessor, Sir Alex Ferguson, but how does his record compare with other Manchester United managers?

Graphic: Man Utd's highs and lows

Moyes leaves Man Utd seventh in the Premier League.

The club will miss out on Champions League football for the first time since 1995 and are in danger of missing out on European competition altogether for the first time since 1990.

With the exception of the temporary tenures of Sir Matt Busby (manager from 1945-1969 who returned as emergency manager in 1970) and Jimmy Murphy (who stood in for Sir Matt after the 1958 Munich air crash), Moyes's reign is the third shortest in United history.

Moyes spent the previous decade at Everton, stabilising the club and turning them into solid Premier League performers.

His inability to cope with vastly higher expectations at Man Utd - even during what was seen as a transitional season for the club - has been cited as a major reason for his failure.
