Spanish interpreter battling to get Moyes to understand he’s sacked

A SPANISH interpreter is finding it impossible to communicate to David Moyes that he has been fired by Real Sociedad.

The club terminated Moyes’s contract after poor results, but is struggling to convey the message to the Scottish boss who has accumulated fewer than five words of Spanish in his 12 months in the country.

Read Sociedad’s interpreter, Jorge Acosta, said: “I’ve used every English term for ‘fired’ and ‘hopeless failure’ I can come up with but Moyes seems more committed to the job than ever. He came bouncing in this morning and started laying down cones.

“I’m starting to doubt my grasp of the English language.

“We handed him a leaving card but he just kept saying that we shouldn’t have and that his birthday was in April.”

Moyes famously avoided being sacked by Manchester United for three months by putting his fingers in his ears and humming, so Real Sociedad are facing the possibility that Moyes will continue to coach the side even after a new boss is brought in.
