Former Manchester United and Everton manager David Moyes refused to make a comeback in Premier League irrespective of having several offers from various clubs.
Speaking to El Diario Vasco The Scottish manager said: “I am really enjoying the experience. I have a very good relationship with the club and I am very happy.
“My first experience of La Liga has been positive – the first six or seven months; my wish was to be able to complete a full season, from start to finish, like this one.
“This summer I received a lot of offers to return to the Premier League but I have decided to stay here because I believe in this project and I believe in the players we have – players who I know much better now.
“The pre-season helped me, not just to get to know what the players are about, but also to understand them on a personal level.”
David Moyes further praised the Real Sociedad fans and added: “Real Sociedad fans are fantastic. They know that the club is trying to join the other teams who are always in the top part of the table – to get as close to them as possible.
“They understand the club is aiming to do that with operations such as the one that brought me here or the one to bring [Asier] Illarramendi back [from Real Madrid]; it’s part of a very clear philosophy.
“I really appreciate their support a lot and we are working very hard so that they can feel proud of a team which can compete with anyone, every weekend.
“I know how important the team is in this region – you only have to see the number of blue and white shirts around the city.
“I want to collaborate to form a team with a solid base which can last for several years.”
David Moyes had managed Merseyside club Everton FC for 11 years and then succeeded Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United in 2013. After a poor show at Old Trafford the club sacked Moyes before the season concluded. Manchester United finished 7th in the league table under Moyes.
David Moyes got an offer from La Liga side Real Sociedad last season and he immediately took up the challenge. Under David Moyes Sociedad recorded home wins against Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid and Barcelona last campaign the last of which came while Moyes was in charge.
Real Sociedad has so far remained unbeaten in the first two matches of La Liga.
