Jagoba Arrasate was sacked by the club last week following their poor start to the season.

The Basque outfit were beaten 1-0 at home by Malaga on Saturday which left them one point off the bottom with six points from 10 games.

Asked who might take over at Real Sociedad, Aperribay said: “It’s true about Mel, it’s true about Moyes, but we’re also talking with more managers and maybe there will be more than that. We are talking with all that are on the shortlist and we want them to know how we operate, giving them knowledge of Real Sociedad, from the respect, to the philosophy and the youth academy.”

“We really like the four, each with their own style. And there are some things that we really like a lot about them.”
