Leeds fans react on Twitter to confirmed manager departure
By Amir Mir
David Moyes has resigned from his managerial post at Sunderland – and Leeds fans have reacted on Twitter to his departure.
The club confirmed on their official Twitter account on Monday afternoon that the former Manchester United manager has left his role at the Stadium of Light.
The Black Cats were relegated from the Premier League this season, finishing bottom of the table as they will be joined in the Championship by Middlesbrough and Hull.

Leeds supporters on social media urged their own club to sign manager Garry Monk up to a new contract or he could be heading for the exit door as well.
Monk’s contract at Elland Road is due to expire at the end of June after he signed a one-year rolling deal when he joined the club last summer.

He helped the Yorkshire outfit finish five points outside of the play-off places as fans began to believe that they are now edging closer to a return to the promise land.
Leeds will come up against Sunderland next season as one fan stated that there are some serious problems up north.
Over the course of the season, Moyes’ side recorded only six wins from their 38 matches as they recorded 24 points during the campaign.
Overall, the Elland Road faithful were clear that their team cannot allow Monk to follow in the same footsteps as Moyes.
Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Following the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson in 2013, the Scotsman hand-picked Moyes as his replacement at Old Trafford.
However, after a season of struggle Moyes was sacked before the end of the campaign as he then went on to manage Spanish side Real Sociedad.
The former Everton man was sacked by the La Liga club in 2015 and moved back to England to manage Sunderland.
