David Moyes might get a stay of execution for the strangest reason

They can't sack you if they can't find you - at least David Moyes will hope that's the case.

But it's not a last-minute change of heart from the club's owners - Moyes may have a bit longer in the job because his flight back to Spain has been cancelled.

Moyes had returned to the UK after La Real lost to Las Palmas on Friday night, and many expect the former Everton boss to be sacked upon his return to Spain.

But his dismissal may come a little later than planned - unless the owners are heartless enough to dismiss him over the phone.
